Yemeni Junior Football Team in Qatar: Draw + Draw = ? [Archives:1998/33/Sports]

August 17 1998

The Yemeni Youth Football Team was able to draw 2-2 in its friendly match with the Qatari Olympic Team. This game was part of a training camp currently being held in Qatar in preparation for the Asian Tournament of Youth Football Teams. The first friendly match was with the Arabi Team of Qatar, which ended with a 1-1 draw.
In spite of the very hot weather (45¡C in the shade) the Yemeni team was able to adapt relatively easily, a thing that reflects the players’ determination and ambition despite the lack of resources and proper facilities back in Yemen.
Yemen Times wishes the Youth Team all success. Friendly matches, however, do not usually give a good indication as to the team’s future performance.
