BHUTAN: Qatar coach Daniel Carreno on Tuesday applauded the

performance of his players after his side beat Bhutan in a World

Cup/Asian joint qualifying match.

Qatar’s sixth consecutive qualifying win has helped the side reach

the finals of the 2019 Asian Cup to be held in the UAE.

“We have achieved the first of our goals. We played really well today

and I applaud their performances over the course of last six months,” Carreno

said after Qatar beat Bhutan 3-0.

“I thank the players for their whole-hearted efforts on and off the

pitch,” Carreno said.

“We will turn our focus on our next qualifier and we will aim to win

that game also,” Carreno said.

“We tried to score more goals but Bhutan defended well today. I

think it was a fair result as both sides fought hard,” Carreno said.

“In the first half, it was a little tough to find openings. But we

changed the strategy in the second half but I must admit they

defended well,” the coach said.

“We will be training harder now. I am confident we will do well

as a team,” he said.

Hassan Al Haydos scored a brace while Mohammed Muntari

scored in the first half in Qatar’s 3-0 win.
