Qatar 1-0 Slovenia
Slovenia suffered their fifth successive friendly defeat as a goal moments after half-time from defender Abdelkarim Hassan earned Qatar victory in Doha. Slovenia, who beat San Marino 6-0 on Friday, have not won a friendly since beating Canada 1-0 in November 2013 – they have not scored a non-competitive goal since then, either.
Srečko Katanec, Slovenia head coach:
I have seen a deserved victory for Slovenia. I am happy because the guys took this match very seriously for the entire 90 minutes. Perhaps, it seems like an easy win, but believe me, it was not. Unfortunately, in the first half we were not as aggressive or as focused [as I would have liked].
The tempo was too slow in the final third but improved in the second half - with lots of opportunities and goals. It is true that San Marino are a modest team, but other teams in our group were not so undisturbed against them. That's why I am pleased.
