Yemen storm into Round 2

Tuesday, 22 March 2011

UAE: Yemen stormed into the second round of the 2012 London Olympics qualifiers beating Singapore 3-0 on aggregate recently.

The West Asians, who won the first leg in UAE 2-0, thanks to goals from Aiman Al Hagri and Mohamed Al Anbari, maintained their winning momentum in the return leg on Monday.

Al Anbari was again in the scoresheet when he found the net in the 14th minute.

The match was postponed and shifted to a neutral venue due to the prevailing situation in Yemen.

FIFA and AFC had jointly decided on 19 February to postpone the match after taking into consideration the situation in Yemen.

It was also decided that if the situation in Yemen did not clearly improve in the next days, the match would take place on neutral ground.
