Nakheel Landscapes emerged Workers’ Cup 2017 champions when they defeated Al Asmakh Facilities Management team 3-0 at Qatar Sports Club Stadium yesterday.
Nakheel Landscapes, who upset 2016 champions Taleb Group in the quarter-finals, were the top favourites to win this year’s tournament, co-sponsored by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy.
The match had a frantic pace from the kick off as Nakheel scored from a free kick goal early on in the fifth minute. Jacques Baone free kick landed into the near corner as Nakheel went up 1-0. Later on, in the 18th minute a goal from Mahamat Mohamoud doubled Nakheel’s advantage.
