As for the Sudan team, it left the tournament after three defeats, and it also failed to score any goal during this edition and showed defensive weakness, as it conceded on 10 occasions.

Lebanese chances in the first half

The Lebanese national team dominated the first half, and was the initiator of the attack and pressured its opponent continuously, as the dangerous opportunities were in its favor and twice came close to scoring the first goal, but goalkeeper Ali Abu Ashrine played an important role in keeping the result even.

The Sudanese team did not show a great desire to focus on the negative image it installed after the first two matches in the tournament, as its attacks were without danger to the defense of its opponent, and the problems that appeared at the beginning of the tournament were repeated through poor organization despite the technical skills of its players.

Excitement and foul of the goalkeeper

The second half was exciting, after the chances of scoring were available for both teams, as the Sudanese team decided its level from the offensive side, and the exaggerated physical impulse made each team finish the confrontation deprived of the services of one of the players, and fatigue appeared on the players during this period, which affected the Technical level in the last minutes.

After he shone in the first half, and played an important role in the Sudan team’s draw, goalkeeper Abu Ashreen committed a mistake in the 76th minute, after he failed to clear the ball, to give his opponent an unexpected goal, given that the play was even before the goal was scored.
