Coach Darren Stewart’s game plan to stop Oman backfired completely as the middle east side beat Maldives comfortably by 5-0 in the AFC Cup qualifying game played in Oman tonight.
Oman opened the scoring in the 4th minute but Maldives was lucky to finish the half without conceding after a hopeless display.
Oman added four more in the second half with majority of the goals came as a result of poor defending and lack of proper game plan.
Stewart insisted before the game that there is nothing Maldives to fear of Oman but as the game progressed most Maldivian’s hope the game ends as soon as possible to save the players from a humiliation.
In the other game of the group Palestine beat Bhutan by 2-0 strengthen their position at the top of the group.
