Qatari national football team members take part in a training session under the watchful eyes of coach Felix Sanchez at St George’s Park in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, United Kingdom.

Qatar played their third pre-season friendly match against Andorra yesterday. Earlier, they lost to Nottingham Forest 1-2 on Sunday, but managed to defeat Leeds United 2-0.

The final friendly match will see Al Annabi take on Turkmenistan on August 23 as they prepare for two upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Syria and China. Sanchez and his boys will return to Doha on September 1.
