Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar: Qatar coach Felix Sanchez Bas was positive after watching his side held to a 1-1 draw by Iraq on Sunday, in their second Group D match of the AFC U-19 championship currently taking place in Myanmar.

“It was a very tough game against a strong team but my players acquitted themselves well and were up for the challenge,” said the Qatar coach, whose side will face a showdown with Oman in Yangon on Tuesday.

He remained positive about Qatar’s chances of progressing to the knockout stage, ” the group is still open to all possibilities, a win against the Saudis could see us through eventually”.

“Even when they went a goal down they kept their heads and, in the end, a draw was a fair result.”

Qatar will enter the match against Oman knowing that a win or a draw will see them through to the knockout stage irrespective of the outcome of the other match between Iraq and DPR Korea.
