Expectations of Xavi Hernandez were confirmed by the legend of Barcelona and Qatari al Saddam, and Qatar and Japan went to the 2019 Asian Cup final.
For the first time in its history, Qatar reached the final of the Asian Cup, after a big victory over the United Arab Emirates in the 4-0 tournament.
The Qatari team beat Japan in the finals on Friday, after the samurai overtook Iran by three.
And there remains only one step to fully meet the expectations of Xavi, since the Spanish star hoped to crown Qatar at the expense of Japan.
Expectations Xavi, who was a month ago from the tournament, caused a contradiction at the time, as Qatar had not reached the semifinals of the championship before.
“I know the players of Qatar well and I know the potential of the technical team,” said Xavi. “If Qatar surpasses the quarter finals, he will leave, because he has the potential and talent of other teams.”
"Qatar is able to win the Cup, but it must trust the abilities of its players."
