Toulon, France: Qatar Under-23 team defeated Bahrain 4-2 in penalties to finish 11th at the Toulon International Football Tournament in France on Tuesday.

Qatar were down by a goal in the 28th minute after Salem Adel Hassan put Bahrain ahead but Al Annabi fought back strongly in the second half and equalised through substitute Khalid Muneer Mazeed in the 67th minute to take the game to penalties.

In the penalties, Qatar converted four of their five attempts, while Bahrain managed to find the net only twice.
