Muscat: Oman’s victorious national football squad members were carried around the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex party in horse drawn carriages.

Captain Ahmed Mubarak, coach Pim Verbeek and the rest of the squad arrived at the stadium in an open-top bus, after arriving on a special flight from Kuwait City, and are now being honoured on stage in front of thousands of loyal and passionate fans, who have been waiting for their heroes since this afternoon.

Oman beat the UAE 5-4 on penalties at the Jaber Al Ahmad International Stadium in Kuwait City on Friday, their second triumph since they won it on home soil in 2009.
