Muntari's brilliant second half strike seals a 1-1 draw for Qatar. This was a thrilling game filled with chances and Ireland made a breakthrough early on when McClean turned in a well-worked corner. However, Qatar had plenty of opportunities to draw level, only for Muntari and Ali to miss key chances. Nevertheless, early in the second half, Muntari swivelled before slamming in a brilliant strike from 20 yards to make it 1-1. Muntari would later waste an opportunity to win it when he blazed over from 18 yards, and Al Sheeb was forced to produce a superb late save to deny Cullen and ensure the score remained 1-1.
