AFC Champions League

Doha: Hosts Qatar opened their AFC U-19 Championship 2014 Group A qualifying campaign with a 2-0 win over India at Al Arabi Stadium on Friday.

Both sides were in goalless stalemate in the first half and it took the Qataris the middle point of the second half to score their first goal before scoring their second in the dying minutes of the game.

Felix Sanchez Bas’ Qatari side scored their first goal through a penalty on 61 minutes that was taken by Akram Hassan A.Y. Afif.

Substitute midfielder Husam Kamal Hassan Hassanin came off the bench on 84 minutes and the strategy paid off as he scored just four minutes into his play to seal the Qataris’ first win.

Colm Toal-led India will face off Nepal on Sunday while Qatar will play Turkmenistan on Tuesday.
