“Have we thrown away the dream ourselves? ... Come on, boys! Come on! Come on! ... The second goal, the second! Pass! The second! GOAAALLLLLL! Allah! ... The second goal! The second goal for our national team! Who scored it? Who scored? Somah! It had to be Somah! It had to be Somah! The equalizing goal! Pardon me! I’ve lost it! No one can stop them!”
Thanks to Omar Al Somah's 93rd minute goal in Tehran, Syria, which has had to play its home games in Malaysia, finished third in Asia's Group A behind Iran and South Koreato to earn a playoff with Australia. The winner of that series advances to a playoff with Concacaf's fourth-place team for a spot at the 2018 World Cup.
