UAE crush Qatar

Braces from Ahmed Khalil and Ali Ahmed Mabkhout saw United Arab Emirates to a 4-1 win over Qatar in the Asian Cup on Sunday.

Khalfan Ibrahim gave Qatar a surprise 22nd-minute lead in Canberra before Khalil hit back.

The striker's free-kick early in the second half then found the bottom corner before Mabkhout also netted twice.

Qatar goalkeeper Qasem Burhan will have to take some blame for the second and third goals his team conceded in the Group C clash.
