Muscat: Oman and Iraq were deprived of a semifinal place in the West Asia Football Championship with luck favouring Bahrain in the draw conducted in Doha on Wednesday evening.

According to information, the draw was necessitated by Group B situation where all three teams finished with two points apiece after playing out two goalless draws. 

The team to top the group and advance to last four stage was decided based on a lucky draw, which was conducted after the conclusion of all groups games yesterday and fortune favoured Bahrain.

The semifinals, scheduled for Saturday, will see Kuwait taking on hosts Qatar while Bahrain meet the best runners-up Jordan.
