Host Qatar beat Tajikistan to be the first to advance to the round of 16

Qatar, the host of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup and the “defending champion,” won two consecutive games and was the first country to qualify for the tournament.

Qatar beat Tajikistan 1-0 in the second Group A match of the tournament held at Al Bayt Stadium in Al-Qor, Qatar on the 18th.

Qatar became the first team to advance to the round of 16 among the 24 teams that participated in the tournament after garnering two consecutive wins following its 3-0 victory over Lebanon. Qatar will maintain its lead in Group A even if it loses to China in its final group match.랭크카지노주소

Qatar took a 1-0 lead in the 17th minute of the first half when Akram Afif shook the net with a right-footed shot.

Tajikistan, which played in the Asian Cup for the first time through this tournament, played to score an equalizer against Qatar, but in the 34th minute of the second half, Amazani Kamolov kicked his opponent’s chin during the ball competition and was sent off with a red card, putting 10 players in a numerical inferiority.

Japanese referee Hiroyuki Kimura was initially warned, but Tajikistan’s willingness to chase was completely dampened when he ordered a direct exit after a video review (VAR), and Qatar won two consecutive games and won a ticket to the round of 16.
