Bahrain was held by Kuwait to a 1-1 draw last night in the second West Asian Football Federation (WAFF) U18 Boys Championship 2021, currently being played in the Iraqi city of Basra. Team captain Mubarak Mohammed was on target for the nationals in the first half but they then conceded an equaliser with a quarter-hour remaining in regular time.
The stalemate was the first for the Bahrainis in three matches. They had previously beaten Palestine 2-1 before losing to hosts Iraqis 0-4.
They now play one final game in Group A on Sunday against Yemen.
