Bahrain’s victory in yesterday’s match against Japan had revived the Warriors’ hopes for booking a sport in the last eight should they beat Egypt in their Sunday match provided that Japan beat Portugal or draw with them.

The national team may qualify for the second round even if they lose against Egypt, provided that Japan beat Portugal by a difference not exceeding two goals.

 If the Bahrain-Egypt match ends in a draw, the national team may also move the last eight provided that Japan beat Portugal.
