The United Arab Emirates (UAE), led by Bento, failed to advance to the quarterfinals after a penalty shootout after drawing 1-1 until overtime in the round of 16 of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation Qatar Asian Cup against Tajikistan at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Alayyan, Qatar, at 7 p.m. on the 28th (local time).

Tajikistan, ranked 106th in the FIFA rankings, made the most extraordinary advance to the quarterfinals for the first time in the history of Asian Cup finals. Tajikistan advanced to the round of 16 by ranking second in its group after Qatar (nine points) in host country, with a tie with China and a win over Lebanon in Group A.

The UAE ranks 64th in FIFA rankings is expected to be a little higher in terms of objective performance. The UAE rounded up the top four at both the 2015 Australia and 2019 tournaments in its own country. Although the UAE was outplayed by Iran, it scored four points to rank second in Group C.

At a press conference on the previous day (27th), Bento said, “Tazikistan is at its peak in the atmosphere and will have great motivation as they reach the round of 16 for the first time in history.” Bento’s concerns became a reality. If he scored the first goal in the 30th minute of the first half, the atmosphere was also swept away. Giving up space on the side led to a run.

The UAE launched an onslaught in the second half. Immediately before the end of the match, Al-Hamadi scored a dramatic header, taking the game to extra time. The UAE pressed Tajikistan but failed to score a goal. The penalty shootout divided the team into the quarterfinals.

Tajikistan, which played first, lost 3-5 on penalties as Nazarov-Hanonov-Panshanbe-Soyrov-Shukurov calmly scored all of them, while UAE lost 3-5 on penalties as second kicker Kanedu Kohea missed.

Bento, who took the helm as the head coach of the Korean national soccer team in August 2018, has advanced to the round of 16 at the 2022 Qatar World Cup and is leading the UAE in July last year.
