A dramatic last minute winning goal gave Al Sadd, skippered by Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez, victory in the Emir Cup final on Friday 19th May which is Qatar’s biggest domestic cup competition.
The match was played in the newly refurbished Khalifa International Stadium, the first FIFA World Cup 2022 venue to be completed. Among those watching on in the 40,000-seater air-conditioned stadium was FIFA president Gianni Infantino.
Xavi provided the assist for Jugurtha Hamroun to fire home the winner in injury time, to cap a 2-1 victory for Al Sadd against rivals Al Rayyan, coached by another former Barcelona great, Michael Laudrup.
BURRDA SPORT is proud to have provided match kit and training wear to Al Sadd as this latest trophy win was the club’s second domestic cup competition triumph during this very successful 2016/17 season.
