UAE Unified Football Team Seal First Victory at World Games Abu Dhabi 2019 With 4-0 Win Over South Africa

Dubai, UAE, 16 March 2019:   The UAE Special Olympics Unified Football Team claimed victory over South Africa on Friday.

Playing its second match of the World Games at Zayed Sports City, the 11-a-side UAE team recorded a 4-0 win over its opponents 
A dominant display by the Emirati team in front of a crowd of energetic home fans saw goals scored by Ayman Al Maqbali, Abdelaziz Al Hamour with Khalid Al Maamari scoring a brace.

The victory, the UAE’s first of the World Games, means the team will be full of confidence before taking on Jamaica in its final Group A match on Saturday.

The UAE team, which features athletes with and without intellectual disabilities, narrowly lost out (2-1) to Spain in its opening match.
