Asian world cup qualifications was a massive hit during the week with a number of serious victories. Here are some results for you to understand how interesting it was.
Saudi Arabia 7 – 0 Timor-Leste
Australia 5 – 0 Bangladesh
Qatar 15 – 0 Bhutan
Iran 6 – 0 Guam
U.A.E. 10 – 0 Malaysia
Now the U.A.E vs Malaysia didn’t record more goals than Qatar for instance but it had one interesting twist. The 10 goals were conceded by the 3 Goal keepers present for the match.
During the 90 minutes overhauling by UAE, Malaysia Goal keeper Khairul Bin Che Mat let in four and lasted just 28 minutes, his replacement, Selamat, conceded another three and was taken off on 62′, leaving it to Khairul Azhan Khalid to see out the misery.
On a general note, Should we give credit to the Asian team’s attacking prowess or the lack of defensive abilities for the teams as a total of 76 goals was recorded in the 15 games over the week?
