Qatar's victory over UAE leads to bottles and sandals thrown towards the players

In the post-match press conference, Qatar's Spanish head coach Felix Sanchez discussed the game's events: "The players were aware there was going to be a lot of pressure but they managed their emotions quite well. I'm very proud of them." Perhaps the early booing of Qatar's national anthem drove the victorious away side to victory, nevertheless, they certainly will be fired up for the final vs four-time winners Japan. Japan overcame Iran on Monday (3-0) with all three goals coming from players playing in Germany. Werder Bremen midfielder Yuya Osako scored twice whilst Hannover forward Genki Haraguchi scored in injury time, setting up Friday's exciting clash.
