Dubai, UAE, 19 March 2019:   The Special Olympics UAE Football team continued its impressive winning streak by beating Korea in the team’s opening match of the second round 11-a-side football competition.

The UAE put on a dominant display to win 3-0 in front of home fans at Zayed Sports City. After a goalless first half, Abdullah Peerak opened the scoring in the 48th minute, before doubling the lead in the 54th minute. Khaled Al-Mazmi scored a further two goals with the final goal of the game hitting the back of the net in the 55th minute.

It was the UAE’s third consecutive triumph in a row at the competition. The team previously beat Jamaica 4-1 and South Africa 4-0 in the first stage.

Football made its debut at the World Games in 1986 and has become one of the largest sports on the program, featuring traditional and unified teams across the 11-a-side, 7-a-side and futsal competitions.
