Gulf Cup 2009 (Mabrookeen Yal A7mar!!)

Yesterday Oman won the gulf cup 2009 for the first time ever. The match was nerve wrecking... I've not seen a more challenging football game in so long since no goals were made and the match dragged on to the last 5 times 11 metre kicks. But both teams have played very well and KSA's walls were not easily breached...
I could see some players were nervous and too much depended on the penalty kicks... how the players managed to hold their own was quite a ticket to watch.
I've heard KSA is not an easy team to beat... but Oman has shown outstanding levels, especially since they have been trying for the past 2 times to get the cup and always ended up 2nd... the 3rd time should not pass unwon was the goal... and a goal well achieved. So congratulations to the red team and all the best of luck to KSA in the coming 2 years, which I hear will take place in Yemen.

May I wish our team good luck as well by then... and once again... Mabrookeen ya Oman! :)
