Jordan tame Syria to reach Asian Cup knockouts

Goals from Ali Mabkhout and Khalfan Mubarak in the 41st and the 88th minute helped UAE beat India 2-0

Indian football team started their AFC Asian Cup in Dubai on a high as they registered a stunning 4-1 win over Thailand in the opening contest of the coveted tournament.

Alaraibi was convicted in absentia on charges of vandalising a police station in Bahrain, but says he was out of the country playing in a match at the time of the alleged offence.

In their final group stage matches, Bahrain will take on India at the Sharjah Stadium, while Thailand play host nation the UAE in Al Ain's Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium on Monday.

Blond talisman Chanathip "Messi Jay" Songkrasin fired Thailand to only the second Asian Cup win in their history on Thursday as they beat Bahrain 1-0 to reignite their campaign.

Syria, like the Socceroos, dominated possession against the Chivalrous with 66% of the ball.

Sandesh Jhingan's free header off a corner by Anirudh Thapa, which was won by Pritam Kotal, went off target.

Khalfan Mubarak chipped India goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu to give UAE the lead four minutes from halftime.

No Solution Quite Yet for Terrified Saudi Refugee in Thailand
Canada said it will accept her", Thai immigration chief Surachate Hakparn told reporters at Bangkok's main airport. Mr Hakparn said Canada had also offered Ms Alqunun asylum and they were waiting for her decision.

Then, unmarked at the far post, Sunil Chhetri's header after Thapa squared it for the second highest active goal-scorer in global football, was brilliantly saved by UAE custodian Khalid Eisa.

UAE is probably the strongest side in this group with a FIFA World ranking of 79, ahead of India's rank of 97.

But on 26 minutes, after a break down the left, the two combined again when Suleiman stabbed home Rawshdeh's shot from close range, triggering deafening celebrations.

Entering the game after a 1-1 stalemate with Bahrain, UAE required full points full points, and the relief was palpable in their camp when Mubarak broke the deadlock.

Green Falcons midfielder Hussein Al-Moqahwi illustrated the players were singing from the same song book as their boss revealing he and his teammates were expecting a tough test against Radulovic's team.

Stange, who coached the Glory between 1998 and 2000, is the second coach sacked in less than a week in the tournament after Thailand dumped Milovan Rajevac after a 4-1 loss to India. Jeje's volley went inches off the post.

They can confirm their spot in the second round with victory over a Lebanon side who felt aggrieved during their 2-0 loss at the hands of Qatar - coach Miodrag Radulovic hitting out at what his thought was very bad refereeing.
