Yoshida blasts Asian Cup 'stupidity', Latest Football News

Asian Cup 2019 Shibasaki Japan Qatar Asian Cup organizers review UAE complaint on Qatar players

The nation set to host the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2022 World Cup shocked four-time champions Japan 3-1 to win their first Asian Cup title on Friday.

Japan stormed past tournament favourites Iran 3-0 in their semi-final, although their opponents' star forward Sardar Azmoun slapped Gaku Shibasaki to spark a melee during the closing minutes.

With this strike and his ninth overall, Ali has overtaken Iran's Ali Daei's record for the most goals at the Asian Cup.

According to the AFC Disciplinary and Ethics Code, the penalty for fielding an ineligible player is forfeiting the match and a fine, meaning Qatar could potentially not make Friday's final.

One of them, Almoez Ali, scored the opening goal against Japan in the 12th minute of the game with an audacious overhead kick that secured an all-time tournament record of nine goals for him.

Asian Cup hosts the UAE have protested the eligibility of two Qatari players on the eve of Qatar's appearance in Friday's final against Japan.

Felix Sanchez's Qatar, hosts of the World Cup in 2022, lifted the trophy having conceded only Takumi Minamino's second-half strike during their campaign.

Ali nearly scored again within a minute, only to be denied by a desperate block from Yoshida.

The shock result looked even more likely when Abdulaziz Hatem doubled Qatar's lead in the 27th minute.

"I think the most important thing in the game is to remain calm, everyone will be excited, but remaining calm is crucial", he told a pre-match news conference.

(83') Goal! Japan 1, Qatar 3.

- Japan have scored in all 16 Asian Cup games they've participated in since the start of the 2011 tournament, netting a total of 33 goals.

(61) Substitution, Qatar. Salem Al Hajri replaces Boualem Khoukhi because of an injury. Abdelaziz Hatim (Qatar) left footed shot from outside the box to the top left corner.

But the Samurai Blue's comeback bid was cut short when Yoshida handled at the other end and, after referee Ravshan Irmatov consulted VAR, Afif converted from the spot.

The Qatari players were pelted with plastic bottles and shoes after thrashing the hosts 4-0 in the semi-finals in disgraceful scenes that brought shame on the Asian Cup and prompted another AFC investigation.
