UAE and Iraq eye Gulf Cup glory

Bahrain or Oman await the winners of highly anticipated last four clash

The UAE and Iraq meet in the semi-final of the 23rd Gulf Cup of Nations, with winner favourites to go on and clinch the competition held in Kuwait City.

The UAE’s stalemate with hosts Kuwait was enough to see them squeeze through to the last four after Oman’s victory over Saudi, and Alberto Zaccheroni’s men will now hope to step up their form against the team they defeated in the 2013 final.

The UAE are aiming to win the competition for the third time while Iraq haven’t won the Gulf Cup since securing their third and last title in 1988.
