Tasnim – DOHA, Iranian player Mehrdad Mohammadi scored in the stoppage time as Al-Arabi pulled off a sensational 2-1 win over Umm Salal in the QNB Stars League at the Al Arabi Stadium.
The match seemed to be heading for a draw before Mohammadi struck in dying seconds of the match. The victory was much-needed for Al-Arabi as it was its first of the season as it climbed out of the relegation zone.
Al-Arabi sits in seventh position with four points.
Abdulaziz al-Ansari had given Arabi lead in the first half before Abdennour Belhocini pulled one back for Umm Salal in the 68th minute through a penalty.
Mohammadi scored a brilliantly-executed bicycle kick in the stoppage time.
