Zaccheroni's UAE in Gulf Cup chaos

Eleven people were confirmed injured on Friday when a barrier collapsed at the Gulf Cup final in Kuwait, shortly after Oman beat the United Arab Emirates on penalties to claim the title.

Oman claimed the title after beating the United Arab Emirates on penalties.

About 40 people sustained "minor injuries" in Friday's incident, with some fans taken to hospital after being hurt while rushing to celebrate with players following their championship victory, the Kuwait FA wrote on Twitter.

Goalkeeper Faiyz Al Rashidi was the hero for Oman as he denied UAE's Omar Abdul Rahman twice from the spot, once in normal time and once during the shoot-out.

Mr Roudhan added that the injured were "all OK" and that the Kuwaiti authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.

Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, Oman, Iraq, Yemen and Kuwait competed for the Gulf Cup, which was held every two years since the first edition in 1970.

This took the the match to extra time with the extra 30 minutes seeing a cagey affair with chances few and far between, meaning penalties were needed to decide the outcome.
