Oman's Yaqoub al Araimi scored the only goal of the match in the sixth minute.Earlier in the tournament, Oman, which is coached by Talib Hilal, failed to make it to the semifinals from Group A despite winning two of its three group matches. Australia topped Group A with three victories in three games, having beaten Oman, Afghanistan and Qatar, as it entered the semifinals of the Doha tournament. Oman lost 4-6 to the Australians in the opener, but recovered well to beat Afghanistan 7-0 and Qatar 3-1 to finish second in its group.A total of 16 countries, pooled into four groups, played for three spots from Asia for the World Cup, which will be played in Tahiti from September 18-28.
