Syria sack ex-Glory boss Stange after loss to Jordan

When asked who do they support, they say India and he tells them that's not good, they live in the UAE and should support this country.

The only thing missing from the Indian performance, full of verve and tactical intelligence, was goals.

Sunil Chhetri missed the chance to level the scores just before the break as India chased a second win in five days while Udanta Singh hit the crossbar for Stephen Constantine's side. They recovered to beat Bahrain 1-0 on Thursday.

The Jordanians, who stunned Australia in their opening clash, took the lead in the 26th minute when Yousef Al-Rawashdeh's low cross met a finishing touch by Mousa Suleiman.

"The Syrian Arab Football Federation has chose to dismiss coach Bernd Stange", said a statement on the organisation's Facebook page, adding that former national coach Fajr Ibrahim would take charge for the final Group B game against Australia. That goes in, 1-1, things are different again. "We are here now we've got our first three points and we're going to try to qualify out of the group".

"We are, as I've said, very concerned about his detention, very concerned about any potential for return of Mr Al-Araibi to Bahrain", she was reported as saying by The Guardian.

"But if you don't convert your chances you pay for it - and we paid for it".

UAE's first goal underlined those "small margins". Khaflan Mubarak's struck in the 41st minute after which Ali Mabkhout put the game to bed in 88th min for UAE and ensured that the host country continues their dominance over the Blue Tigers.

Or later in the half, when Anirudh Thapa played in a perfectly weighted ball for Chhetri, who headed it straight to goalkeeper Khalid Eisa Bilal.

"The result obviously is very disappointing but we still have a game to play against Australia and we'll have to try and win this game", he said.

They can confirm their spot in the second round with victory over a Lebanon side who felt aggrieved during their 2-0 loss at the hands of Qatar - coach Miodrag Radulovic hitting out at what his thought was bad refereeing. "We have our fate in our own hands". We need to aim for a win and get something from that game.

Try telling that to Chhetri though.

"But the players showed great spirit and willpower tonight and we deserved the victory. Ashique will not sleep, and I will not sleep for a long time".
