UAE file complaint against Qatar player eligibility after Asian Cup loss

Asian Cup hosts United Arab Emirates have launched a late challenge to get their regional rival Qatar disqualified by alleging they fielded two ineligible players at the tournament.

The Australians complained Degenek had been fouled prior to giving...

The Asian Cup is considered the World Cup for Asian nations, and one can see a glimpse of that in the playing styles on display. The West Asian nations (Saudi Arabia, Iran) are tough, rugged and play a fairly physical game, while those from further east (China, South Korea) are quick, technical and extremely clever at controlling the tempo in games.
