Kuwait – Oman beat hosts Kuwait 1-0 in the Arabian Gulf Cup of Nations on Monday as the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia played a goalless draw.
Both matches in Group A were played at the Jaber International Stadium in Kuwait City.
Oman won through an Ahmad Al Mahaijri penalty in the 58th minute to hand Oman their first win of the competition and ensure that Kuwait could not qualify for the semi-finals.
The result keeps the hopes alive for Oman of reaching the last four. They were beaten 1-0 by the UAE in their opening match last Friday.
The UAE and Saudi Arabia were unable to find the net despite a number of chances in the second half.
The last round of games in Group A will be played on Thursday 28 December, with Kuwait taking on the UAE and Saudi Arabia facing Oman.
Group B leaders and defending champions Qatar are due to take second-placed Iraq today. In the other match, bottom-placed Bahrain will meet Yemen.
