Bahrain has finally won its very first Arabian Gulf Title as it clinches victory over Saudi Arabia last December 8, Gulf News reported.
The Kingdom got a 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia, with star player Mohamed Al Rumaihi netting a second-half triumph—landing Bahrain its maiden victory in this coveted football competition.
Bahrain’s win ends the Kingdom’s 49-year wait for a maiden Gulf Cup title.
Saudi Arabia captain Salman Al Farag missed a first-half penalty, and the Kingdom has lost in the finals of the cup four times. Saudi Arabia has not the title again since 2004.
