MANAMA, BAHRAIN: Qatar Futsal national team stopped at the final

hurdle at the GCC Futsal Championship, finishing second behind defending

champions Kuwait after losing a tense 2-5 final.

Qatar reaching the final in this year’s competition came as a pleasant

surprise in comparison to an abysmal second to bottom finish two years

ago in the edition held in Qatar.

Following a 3-1 lead for Kuwait in the first half, an early goal for Qatar

revived Michael Straaz’s men hopes of leveling the score, but two

Kuwaiti Goalsnear the endtook the game beyond them.

Ealier in the night, United Arab Emirates finished third after beating

Oman 3-1.

Qatar were awarded the fair play award in the final ceremony, while

Kuwait’s Ahmed Al Farsi was chosen MVP of the tournament.
