Qatar won the Asian Football Cup tonight, beating Japan 3-1.
Earlier in the week they had beaten UAE by a 4-0 scoreline, a victory made all the sweeter by the fact that UAE is one of the countries imposing an economic and travel blockade on Qatar for last 18 months or so.
So for the weekend and week ahead, the country will be going bananas. The streets are chocka tonight with flag waving local and expats delighting in the victory.
Happy weekend to all.
