Gulf Cup of Nations Record

Prior to the new century, Oman struggled greatly in the Arabian Gulf Cup, usually finishing in 6th or 7th place, even when the Cup was held in Omanmarker. It was about 1998 when Oman took the Gulf Cup seriously, and in the year 2003/2004 Gulf Cups an explosion of new talent emerged like the familiar names of Imad Al-Hosni, Ali Al-Habsi, Badr Al-Maimani and Khalifa Ayil, which made the team very successful. Most recently the national team lost to the U.A.E.marker in the final, and in the prior competition lost to Qatar in a penalty-kick shootout. Finally after losing twice in the final, Omanmarker managed to win the 2009 Gulf Cup of Nations, held in Muscatmarker, while defeating regional giants, Saudi Arabia, in a penalty shootout, 5-6. Oman maintained a clean-sheet throughout the whole competition.

Coaches

  • George Smith, Mansaf El-Meliti, Paulo Heiki, Antônio Clemente, Mahmoud El-Gohary, Bernd Stange, Rashid bin Jaber Al-Yafi’i, Julio César Ribas and Hamad Al-Azani are not proper coaches that have managed Oman as they did not last a whole year with these coaches. Therefore they are weakly suggested as coaches for Oman.
