Qatar thrash North Korea 6-0

Almoez Ali scored four goals to help Qatar record a resounding 6-0 victory over North Korea in Group E of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

22-year-old Ali was in rampant form throughout the encounter at the Sheikh Khalifa International Stadium; scoring twice (9′, 11′) in the first half before adding two more (55′, 60′) after the break. Qatar’s two other goals were scored by Boualem Khoukhi (43′) and Abdelkarim Hassan (68′).

Following the emphatic victory, Qatar head coach Felix Sanchez said,”We’re very pleased with the performance the team displayed today.

“The fact of scoring early also gave us the confidence to keep going and the team never stopped trying to keep playing our game, even when it seemed the game was over, with the fourth goal especially.

“We’re very proud of the players with the performance, the attitude and the game they played this afternoon.”
