Kuwait: Kuwait’s futsal national team advanced to the final of the 4th West Asian Championship after defeating Lebanon 6-3 on Saturday. Despite the power of the Lebanese team, Kuwaiti players dominated both defense and offense in the first half. Kuwait led the first half with three goals from Abdel Raman al-Tawiel, Yusuf al-Harifa and Hamad Hayat, while Lebanon scored one goal with Mustafa Rahim.
In the second half, I witnessed the Kuwaiti players in their best mental and physical condition, along with a great performance by goalkeeper Mohammad Al Hajim. Kuwait scored three more points by Saleh Alfadel, Harifa and Hamad Al Awadi. Raheem scored two goals in Lebanon. Kuwait will play the final on Monday.
