Senegal V's Oman
Oman will face Senegal in the Men's Olympic Qualification Play-Off Match at the City of Coventry stadium on 23rd Arpil 2012
Second Team named in Men's Qualification Play-Off Match
Paul Le Guen’s men defeated favourites Uzbekistan 2-0 thanks to a 16th-minute penalty from captain Hussain Al Hadhri and a goal on the stroke of half-time from Raed Saleh.
Despite having Eid Mohammed Eid Al Farsi sent off with 16 minutes remaining, Oman held on to their advantage in this afternoon’s match which was played on neutral territory at the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Oman will now take on the Teranga Lions in the qualifier at the City of Coventry Stadium on Monday, April 23 (7.45pm kick-off) to become the final nation to seal their place in the 16-team tournament at London 2012.
Justine Hewitt, events manager at the City of Coventry Stadium, said they were looking forward to welcoming both teams to the venue.
“Oman and Senegal will both be keen to become the final country to qualify for the Olympics and it is certain to be a fascinating match,” she said.
“It will also be the first time that either nation has qualified for the Olympics so there is a great deal at stake.
“It would be a matter of great pride for both countries to be involved in London 2012 and they are certain to be giving their all throughout the match.
“Oman did really well in the round-robin tournament to defeat Uzbekistan to win the play-off in the Asian section.
“This will be the first taste of live action in the Olympics in Coventry and we hope as many people as possible will come along to give both teams their full support.”
