This was very good performance by UAE the best I seen them for a long time.They played very well and they were unlucky not to win this match.If they play like this then they have very good chance to qualify from this group,because it is not so easy to play like this against Uruguay who are one of the Olympic football favorites.UAE did Asia proud with this performance,like Japan who won against favorites Spain.
