During the 11-a side match, at the Zayed Sports City, Oman’s Star Player, Ali Al-Anbouri, scored a glut; hat-trick on the first half-time and another two goals at the second half! The other three goals were divided between Khalid Al-Alawi on the 13th minute, and Mohamed Al-Nabhini on the 43rd and 53rd minutes.
