Press Reaction Japan v Qatar

Press reaction to Japan's tame draw against Qatar in the opening Group B fixture in Hanoi's My Dinh Stadium was predictably harsh.

Osim Angry

"Osim Anger" is the headline and the Bosnian coach has every right to be angry at his mis-firing forwards who failed to convert a number of reasonable chances in a game Japan largely dominated.

Qatar Press Reaction

Understandably things were much different in the Gulf where the Qatari press praised coach Dzemaludin Musovic's team for its spirited comeback.

Coincidently both teams' head coaches Musovic and Osim hail from Sarajevo. Musovic was also an assistant to Osim as part of the 1990 Yugoslavian World Cup team's coaching set-up. Musovic's night ended up with a red card for protesting the last-minute dismissal of Hussain Yasser but he will surely be feeling more satisfied with the result than his former boss.
