In Lebanon and Oman’s previous meeting, a late Omani goal allowed Oman to qualify to the 2015 Fifa Beach Soccer instead of Lebanon.
Two years later, the story is completly different: the Title Holders Oman was eliminated by a last-minute goal scored by the experimented Lebanese player Ahmad Jrada. The game ended with a 4-3 win for Lebanon against Oman. Cedars’ scorers are Captain Mohamad Merhi (x2), Mustafa Al Zein, and Ahmad Jrada.
