Oman meet UAE in Gulf Cup final

Kuwait City: Oman booked a place in the Gulf Cup final after Bahrain's Mahdi Abdul Al Jabar scored an own goal in the 29th minute in the first semifinal here on Tuesday.

Oman deserved to be ahead as they had started the better of the two teams and their aggressive approach paid off as Al Jabar was pressured into sending the ball into his own net at the Jaber Al- hmad International Stadium.

Bahrain tried valiantly to find the equaliser, with six minutes of stoppage time at the end of the second half giving them hope, but Oman held on to win 1-0.

In the second semifinal, UAE overcame Iraq 4-2 in penalties after both the teams failed to break deadlock in 90 minutes followed by extra-time.
