AFC Cup wrap: Al Shorta edge Al Qadsia

By Football News

Syrian club Al Shorta got their AFC Cup off to a winning start, with a 1-0 result away at Kuwait outfit Al Qadsia on Wednesday.

The visitors had an over-zealous fan take to the pitch and harass Al Qadsia star Omar Al Soma, before being pole-axed by a Kuwait soldier and hitting the deck hard.

His pain may have been eased somewhat by Al Shorta picking up all three points, and moving equal top of Group D alongside Al Ramtha.

In other Cup results, Iraq club Duhok clinched a 3-1 away victory at Yemen outfit Al Sha'ab Ibb, while Omani side Dhufar saw off Jordanian team Al Faisaly 3-2 in Amman.
