A match that has much more than just a football game in it. Its Dubbed as the #BlockadeDerby. From a Regional and Political rivalry this has now become a Sporting one with UAE buying up all tickets to the Semi Final vs Qatar and distributing them to Emiratis for Free.
Whoever wins this will go on to face Japan in the finals. Japan beat Iran 3-0 in the First Semi-Final.
The tournament has been played against the backdrop of a regional dispute, which saw Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut political, diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar and impose a land, air and sea blockade on the Gulf nation in June 2017.
Btw Showing sympathy for Qatar is punishable in the UAE, with a jail term of up to 15 years. Such is the Rivalry.
