KUWAIT CITY: Qatar coach Felix Sanchez on Saturday said his team

delivered ‘a commanding performance’ against Yemen.

Qatar, the defending champions, beat Yemen 4-0 on day two of the Gulf

Cup at the Kuwait Sports Club Stadium.

“It is a great start for my team. This was just what we were looking

for when we arrived in Kuwait. This win will give us confidence going

into our next game,” coach Sanchez said on Saturday after the match.

“In the first 18 minutes, we scored the three goals. Besides those

goals, we also created many chances to score more goals. They

pressurized us for some time but my players stood firm for most parts

of the match,” the Spaniard said.

“We dominated in the first half and then in the second half, they

split the attacks. But it was a match that belonged to us. My players

showed their intention that they wanted to win this game. I am happy

with their attacking game,” Sanchez added.

Qatar take on Iraq on Tuesday in their second match while Yemen will

battle Bahrain the same day.
