I had to share this.. Al Sadd is doing so well! As many may know, Al Sadd won the AFC Champions League. That’s kind of a big deal. They won it in time to get in the latest editions of football video games like FIFA 2011 and Winning Eleven! Check this picture out.
Al Sadd Sports Club Profile:
One of the oldest football clubs in Qatar, Al Sadd is the only team from the small Gulf nation to have won the AFC Champions League, a feat it first achieved in 1989 when the competition was known as the Asian Club Championship. The Doha-based giants have a local pedigree to match, with over 30 domestic titles to their name.
Some 22 years after their first continental triumph, Al Sadd made a dramatic return to the top of Asian football when they were crowned 2011 AFC Champions League victors courtesy of a skilfully selected blend of experienced veterans and talented youngsters.
So whether you know the team or not, I hope you can show some support!
Update: We lost against them in the match in Japan, but we’re all still proud that a small team could get so far 🙂
