2019 AFC Cup Qualifiers: Lebanon Defeat Hong Kong, secure 3 points

28 Mar. 2017- The Lebanese football national team started the 2019 AFC Cup Qualifiers journey with a big win over Hong Kong. It was clear that Radulovic was looking for an early lead by playing a pure offensive game.

The first minutes of the game were going in favor of the national team. The pressure, possession and dangerous chances finally resulted in a goal on the 26th minute through Mohamad Ghaddar.

Despite grabbing the lead, our players found their way to the goal once again and this time through Hassan Maatouk on the 32nd minute of the first half.

The start of the second half was great for the Cedars. We kept the possession by playing at a slow tempo and keeping our opponents out of the danger zone to successfully control the game and keep the 2-0 lead.

A great start for Lebanon in the 2019 AFC Cup Qualifiers. Let’s hope we can keep it up and book a spot in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.
