Saudi Arabia crush Bahrain to reach quarter-finals

JAKARTA, July 18 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia brushed aside Bahrain 4-0 in Palembang on Wednesday to reach the Asian Cup quarter-finals as Group D winners.

The Saudis dominated the match, taking the lead on 18

minutes through striker Ahmed Al Mousa and doubling the

advantage just before halftime with a goal by Abdulrahman Al

Qahtani.

Al Mousa took advantage of a defensive mix-up to finish

calmly from close range and Al Qahtani clipped the ball home at

the far post following a teasing cross from the right.

Striker Taisir Al Jassam added the third goal with a superb 25-metre

strike on 68 minutes and he completed the rout with a

coolly-taken second 11 minutes from time.

Saudi Arabia will play Group C runners-up Uzbekistan in the last eight in Jakarta on Sunday.

Bahrain finished bottom of the standings with three points

earned from their upset victory over South Korea.
