Doha: Kuwait opened their 8th WAFF Championship campaign with a promising note by defeating Lebanon 2-0 on Monday at the Al Sadd Stadium of Doha.
Fahad Alhajeri fired the Kuwaitis 1-0 ahead in the 41st minute and Faisal Alharbi ensured all three points from the match by scoring the match’s second goal five minutes from time.
With the win in their only match, Kuwait are at the top of Group C while Jordan, who played a goalless stalemate against Lebanon in their opening match, are at second.
Jordan will take on Kuwait on Wednesday and a win for either side would be enough for them to register a berth in the semi-finals as group winner.
