Clear skies welcomed the 24160 spectators who had made their way to I.G.A.Z.. Amir Ali Zibandeh was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Dethlef Meine and Estêvão Manteiga. U-20 Bahrain decided to use a 5-4-1 set up. Starters: Muzal - Chentir, AL Dusarrey, Fakhroo, Al-Hashemi, Kulkarni - AL Khathlan, Haj Hashem, Al Junaid, Humza - Al Benali.

A 5-4-1 alignment was the formation of choice for U-20 Dominican Republic. The following players had been chosen: Franceschi - Esteves, Landaeta, Quero, Cobos, Lara - Fernández Cossio, Guerra, Corrado, Báez - Benavides.

5 minutes into the game, U-20 Dominican Republic seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to passable. With 7 minutes played, the home side managed to get a 1 - 0 lead as Akram Al Junaid flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. What was Ricardo Corrado thinking? That's what everyone wondered when, for no apparent reason, he shot a cross pass over his own penalty area, giving Ali Al Benali an extra chance, but unfortunately for U-20 Bahrain, he didn't get the shot right. With the clock showing 27 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of U-20 Bahrain resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by Hakeem Fakhroo in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. 34 minutes into the game, U-20 Bahrain seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a solid level of organisation. Halftime score was 1 - 0. U-20 Dominican Republic had most of the ball, with 56 percent of possession.

Despite his frustration resulting in the smashing of a few teacups, the coach of U-20 Bahrain was able to get his message across, and raised U-20 Bahrain's organisation to solid. During the break, U-20 Dominican Republic's coach went through the team's tactics yet again, getting them up to solid organisation. Content with how the game was proceeding, the U-20 Bahrain coach let Abdullah Al Sharef replace Shridhar Kulkarni after 46 minutes. With Shridhar Kulkarni no longer on the pitch, Razzaq Humza took over free kick duty. The coach of U-20 Bahrain was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 46 minutes, Namvar Aflaki came on for Ali Al Benali. Given a free kick close to the byline, U-20 Bahrain tried a move that loyal fans may recognise from training. A pass to the side pulled the defence out of position which let Hakeem Fakhroo slip through on goal. He didn't have to break his stride, and slipped the ball past the keeper to make it 2 - 0, 68 minutes into the game. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of U-20 Bahrain to 3 - 0 as Abdullah Al Sharef finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle. 70 minutes into the game, U-20 Bahrain had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to passable. Jameel Muzal left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 89 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. Ramadan Al zamel was the replacement. The match ends 3 - 0. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by U-20 Dominican Republic, with 61 percent of the ball.

U-20 Bahrain's best player was Ramadan Al zamel. Faisal Al-Hashemi was a disappointment, however. U-20 Dominican Republic's top performer was clearly Ricardo Corrado. However, Horacio Báez made a disastrous appearance.
