Trio chase Olympic dream

Uzbekistan, Syria and Oman enter Asia’s last-chance play-off tournament knowing an appearance at the 2012 Olympic Games is potentially just three games away as the trio go head-to-head in Vietnam for the right to face Senegal for a ticket to London.....

Well, that is a bit of a surprise with Oman squeezing through (2 of their 3 goals in the play-offs were penalties) to meet Senegal in the intercontinental play-off.
One match that will decide the last spot at the Olympics so who knows... Oman might actually have a chance.

They do now!!!

Wigan keeper Al Habsi backing Oman's bid for Games in qualifier at Coventry

Wigan goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi has promised to support from the stands after Oman booked an Olympic play-off with Senegal at the Ricoh Arena on April 23.

Paul le Guen's team needed a victory over Uzbekistan to edge through to the penultimate match and goals from skipper Hussain Al Hadhri and Raed Ibrahim Saleh were enough to withstand a late rally.

'I'm so happy because the Oman vs Senegal game will be in Coventry,' Al Habsi Tweeted.

'I'll be the first one in the stands supporting the lads!'


The play-off will determine the 16th and final berth for the men's tournament, although the precise make-up of the British team remains shrouded in mystery due to the preference of the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish associations for their players not to take part.

Brazil, Uruguay and Spain are among those who have made it through, although holders Argentina, Australia and the United States, plus European heavyweights Germany, France and Italy, have all missed out.

Senegal beat Oman 2 - 0 in front of 11,611 people to qualify for the finals for the first time.

Senegal beat Oman for final Olympic spot

And this interesting story (also from the BBC):

Oman and Senegal test City of Coventry Stadium ahead of Olympics

"We have given over 11,000 tickets to schools and expect around 10,000 -12,000 people, which isn't bad for a wet Monday evening in Coventry," he added ahead of the match.
