Oman reach Asian Cup last 16 to end Palestine's qualification hopes



Oman are through to the last 16 of the Asian Cup after two goals in the final six minutes saw them beat Turkmenistan 3-1 in Abu Dhabi on Thursday night

The result qualifies them as one of the best third-place sides for the knockout stages.

Ahmed Al Mahaijri had given them a 20th-minute lead at the Mohamed bin Zayed Stadium but that was cancelled out four minutes from half time as Altymyrat Annadurdyyev found the net.

Oman pushed forward in the second half and their pressure was rewarded six minutes from time as Muhsen Al Ghassani slotted home after a goalmouth melee.

A header from Mohammed Al Mussallami in stoppage time sealed the victory.

The win for Oman ends Palestine's hopes of reaching the second round. They had been the fourth best third-placed side going into Thursday's final day of the group stages despite not scoring any goals in their three matches.

They had two points and that will now not be enough, with Bahrain (four), Kyrgyzstan (four), Oman (three) and Vietnam (three) all having more points then them.

Oman's goal difference is better then Vietnam's and means it is the Vietnamese who must sweat on the final Group E game between North Korea and Lebanon that starts at 8pm.

Lebanon must win by four goals against North Korea to displace Vietnam, while the North Koreans must win by the unlikely margin of nine goals to go through.

Three ways to limit your social media use

Clinical psychologist, Dr Saliha Afridi at The Lighthouse Arabia suggests three easy things you can do every day to cut back on the time you spend online.

1. Put the social media app in a folder on the second or third screen of your phone so it has to remain a conscious decision to open, rather than something your fingers gravitate towards without consideration.

2. Schedule a time to use social media instead of consistently throughout the day. I recommend setting aside certain times of the day or week when you upload pictures or share information. 

3. Take a mental snapshot rather than a photo on your phone. Instead of sharing it with your social world, try to absorb the moment, connect with your feeling, experience the moment with all five of your senses. You will have a memory of that moment more vividly and for far longer than if you take a picture of it.

Tips for job-seekers
  • Do not submit your application through the Easy Apply button on LinkedIn. Employers receive between 600 and 800 replies for each job advert on the platform. If you are the right fit for a job, connect to a relevant person in the company on LinkedIn and send them a direct message.
  • Make sure you are an exact fit for the job advertised. If you are an HR manager with five years’ experience in retail and the job requires a similar candidate with five years’ experience in consumer, you should apply. But if you have no experience in HR, do not apply for the job.
