India take on Lebanon in QFA's community football final

India take on Lebanon in QFA

DOHA, Qatar: Lebanon will meet India in the Sixth Asian Communities Football Tournament (ACFT) final at Al Arabi Stadium on Friday.

India had defeated defending champions Jordan 1-0 while Lebanon thrashed Nepal 3-1 in the semifinals of the tournament, which is organised by the Qatar Football Association.

The final is expected to see huge community attendance as both sides have a strong fan base.

The ACFT is a community tournament which brings together various Asian communities residing in Qatar, and encourages them to play football in a fun and competitive environment.

The tournament falls under QFA’s Sub-Leagues Committee, which oversees the organising of tournaments that target the different segments of the community.

Other tournaments organised by the QFA Sub-Leagues Committee include the School League, University League, and Qatar Amateur League.

The best players of the semifinals were India’s Mufeer Ali and Lebanon’s Husain Mansour.

Jordan has automatically secured the third place after Nepal withdrew from the third-place decider match last week, which granted Jordan three points for a win.

The winner will receive a cash prize of QR 15,000 while the second and third-placed teams will get QR 10,000 and 5000 respectively.
