KUWAIT: HH The Crown Prince cup tournament (Round 8) had the current holder Kuwait Football Club face Al-Sahel on Sunday, and the match ended 2-0 in favor of Kuwait. Kuwait players had an almost total control of the match, but lacked the necessary execution and scoring tactics. Kuwait had some opportunities but Burgan’s goal keeper was up to the task during the first half. The second half was different as Kuwait’s Fahad Al-Hajiri scored in the 46th minute, and a second goal was scored by Talal Fadhel in the 56th minute.
Meanwhile, Burgan beat Fahaheel 3-1 in a relatively competitive match. Burgan’s goals came from shots by Yousuf Saad in the 29th minute, Khalid bin Yahya 96th and Geovani in the 115th. Fahaheel’s lonely goal came in the 44th minute. Fahaheel were somehow better in the first half though they could not score.
Burgan took the opportunity and scored in the 29th minute. Fahaheel’s goal came towards the end of the first half from the penalty spot, as Mohammad Abdelhahi scored the equalizer. The second half remained without scores, so the teams resorted to extra time and Burgan was able to score twice.
