2021 FIFA Arab Cup: Qatar Beat Egypt On Penalties To Claim Third-Place 

Qatar defeated Super Eagles AFCON group opponent Egypt on penalties to clinch third-place in the FIFA Arab Cup on Saturday.

The heated game seemed like it could be heading in either direction as both teams managed near-equal possession of the ball, with Egypt slightly taking the upper hand in the final minutes.

Later on Saturday, Tunisia will be hoping to cause an upset when they take on African champions Algeria for the title.

Seven-time African champions Egypt will kick-off their AFCON against Nigeria, on Tuesday, 11 January, 2022 in Garoua.

      I think you’re lacking behind if you don’t know this is not the main Egyptian team, and also Qatar is the host nation of the tournament. Qatar had been training for ages, churning out great results against Asian top dogs. Don’t even underrate Iran least to say or Saudi. Football has changed in Asia.
