Qatar vs UAE: preview
Players to watch
Qatar – Almoez Ali
Free-scoring forward Almoez Ali has slowed since firing seven group-stage goals, failing to find the net so far in the knockout round. However, if Qatar are to win the tournament, he will surely have to deliver again.
UAE – Ali Mabkhout
The UAE's equivalent marksman is Ali Mabkhout and, by contrast, he has two in his last two matches. After a winner against Australia, he will be targeting another famous strike on Tuesday.
Felix Sanchez (Qatar): "In any competition, you have pressure as you need to get the right results. The team, I believe, has coped very well with the situation so far. Of course, all of us know there is added pressure because it is the semi-final.
"But I think we are feeling confident rather than under pressure ahead of the match. It is a very big game for us and we are very pleased to be in the semi-finals of this very important tournament.
"Hopefully, against UAE, we are going to play to our strengths and try to do our very best to continue in the competition."
Zaccheroni (UAE): "We had some difficulties in the first group stage games, as well as in the round of 16.
"But we are evolving and our performance in the last game [against Australia] was very good. I am therefore confident that we will be able to beat Qatar with a good performance."
