Can we really stop this and just focus on the football here?

Anyway, Japan and Qatar are at 2-2 despite Japan with 1 man down.

That was a depressing game to watch, Qatar controlled the whole game and all Japan's 3 goals came from defensive mistakes, and the last one came in the final minute (90).

Final Score

Japan 3:2 Qatar

Actually one of Qatar two goal was also because Japanese GK's ( Kawashima) mistakes. But overall, good game. I agree, Qatar looks very dangerous in this match.

Anyway, Congrats Japan

cheers

Yup

Well, my country's team "Jordan" just got eliminated by Uzbekistan 2-1 in the quarter finals along with Qatar

I shed a tear after the match, but I got over it, good luck to Uzbekistan in their next matches.

edit: I would say we played fairly well, but Uzbekistan suddenly scored 2 goals in a row, then shortly after we kept trying to score untill we successfully got a goal from a corner kick. We had many chances to score after but the Uzbeki Goalkeeper blocked all of our shots, and that 2nd goal just wouldn't go in.

Game Goals

Same with France's football team, none of the French football team players actually have any French roots, most of them are descendants of African immigrants.

Speak to Australians then. A common joke here is as bad as our cricket team is, at least we don't go to the UN like the English do to fill a team

Seriously though, people migrate, it happens all the time and there is nothing wrong with it. The only time I think it causes an issue is when the sole reason for migrating is to get to play in a national sporting side. That is why Pietersen always rubbed a lot the wrong way (but mostly of course because if the pathetic racist reason he gave for why he thought he wasn't getting a chance in South Africa).

One thing I'm liking so far is it does seem the standard of Asian football is on the improve. Good to see some nice competition, an not just one sided results while we wait for Japan, Korea, Iran, and Saudi Arabia to play out the semis.

France overseas territories are mostly black countries like french guiana, guadeloup, reunion and new caledonina. But also many of them indeed are from french africa who moved too france.

Yeah I thought so, same with Qatar, Qatar has actually 3 nationalized players who were nationalized just for the sake of soccer, the rest of the team are desndents of immigrants from Yemen, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait who moved to Qatar.

Final Score

Japan 3:2 Qatar
and qatar's goals both came from goalkeeping howlers as well
however it was a great game and advertisement not only for qatar but i think the standard and outcomes of several games at this tournament has been a great advert for the asian game

on a side note i have grown hugely fond of jassim bin hamad stadium, brilliant smaller sized stadium

First outdoor air conditioned stadium in the world
The club was a host to a number of events including the 2004 Gulf Cup of nations opening ceremony & final match between Qatar and Oman, the 2006 Asian games football final between Qatar and Iraq, group games of the 2011 AFC Asian Cup in addition to World Cup qualifying matches
