Let's hope this does not happen in 2022

Host's Loss a Huge Blow to the Tournament as Empty Seats Won't Look Good for the Nation Hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022



Gulf News
Published: 00:00 January 23, 2011

Doha: Qatar's 3-2 loss to Japan was a huge blow to the Asian Cup, which has seen a dip in the number of fans coming to the stadium to watch the matches.

But the fact remains that even when the hosts played their quarter-final at the 25,000-capacity Al Gharafa Stadium the official attendance was only 19, 479.

After Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain and the UAE made early exits, only Qatar's progress could have lifted the continent's premier nations cup contest. Now with Qatar and Jordan also out of the event, more empty stadiums will not be a good advertisement for the nation which has won the rights to stage the 2022 World Cup.

While the Qatari fans were upset with their country's failure to make it to the last four, heart-broken players and officials admitted they lost to a superior side.

"After the first 30 minutes, we felt our place in the semifinal was assured. But unfortunately, we lost concentration and let in two goals.

"It was a bad game for us," said Qatari striker Ali Afif.

"Japan was a very strong team."

Mysterymike, please zip it. We don't need this to be a thread of egos, it's about the actual comp and results on the park.

We all have views on the wc bid, eligibility of players and other things, but this is not your, mine or anyone elses, place to push an agenda on that. It just becomes a bitter argument that leads to nothing good.

Stay on topic please.

Breaking News: Australia vs. Iraq ref Abdulrahman Abdo (Qatar) has been fired from reffing at the AFC Cup for:

-Denying Iraq 2 correct penalties
-Giving Iraq 3 undeserved yellow cards
-Not giving Harry Kewell a yellow card for taking off his shirt after he scored a goal
-Not giving an Australian player a red card for pulling a player by his arm to the ground without a ball

This is the second ref to fired from the AFC Cup 2011, first one was Australian ref Benjamin Williams in the second game in the championship between China and Kuwait.

The refereeing has been very questionable in many matches. Some refereeing in the Qatar vs Japan game was extremely dicey, which I am surprised not much has come of.

I think a ref has to make disastrous mistakes in order to get himself fired.

You're are a joke.Any fair minded neutral knows which team got away with murder.The Australians such as Cahill and Kewell are getting absolutely hacked
Schwarzer hardly had any work for the night and of course the old -"fall on the ground" trick every 3 minutes to wind down the clock because your team is all cramping up

Just accept that the very best teams ALL made it thru.

May as well move the last 4 matches to Tokyo where people might actually give a stuff

As has been said before, the refereeing in this tournament had many question marks above it, whats bad is some of them were thought to be some of the best.

Not unusual for reffing to be a mixed bag, it's part of the game and happens everywhere.

Going to be a couple of ripper games for the semis.


Really looking forward to japan vs south korea, should be a fantastic match, and could Ho either way.

Australia vs Uzbekistan is also interesting. Oz side is in transition, and hasn't quite hit it's straps yet. As for Uzbekistan, a side on the rise who have shown they can play well on their day

I'm going to watch Australia vs. Uzbekistan, but for some my conscience is telling me to skip Japan vs. South Korea, games between these two teams always end up in 0-0 or 1-0 because they have similar style of play.

Yep,expecting low broadcast rating for that match in the middle east even though it will be a brilliant match and could go either way.Japan also have the same double advantage that the Uzbek's enjoy-recovery time and a 90 minutes match

You get 50,000 turning up for the CONFERENCE PLAY-OFF FINAL. Thats Englands 5th tier.

More people turn up to my sides local team which aren't even professional football.

I find it astonishing.
Even though I'm disappointed in the attendance for the matches, you don't have to exaggerate, average attendance is 13,000 if you calculate the average of all the games. One problem that brought the attendance down is companies buying a lot of tickets and selling them in the black market for a higher price, that harmed the attendance badly.

Even though I agree that England would've had way way more attendance because it's a great footballing nation, I really don't think Australia will be any better than Qatar if not worse in the attendance, we will see in AFC 2015 in Australia.

Reminder: World Cup 2022 is 11 years away. Give them a break untill then.
