Successful start in U23 Asia Cup
Qatar´s U23 have successfully started the U23 Asia Cup by beating China 3-1 in the opening match.
Coach Felix Sanchez Bas and his young lads had prepared for the Asia Cup in a one-week training camp in Belek, organized by IFCS. Two players of the Qatari squad, Almoez Abdulla and Assim Mabido, happen to bear some reference to Austria. Last year both of them were cooperation players of the LASK Linz (in Austria´s second football division Erste Liga) Aspire Academy. This is why a small group of Linz supporters (as can be seen in the picture below – © LASK) travelled all the way to Doha to see the match and to cheer for their players.
We congratulate the U23 Qatari team on their success in this opening-match and are glad that organizing this training camp provided for a perfect preparation.
