Information Minister Walid al-Daouq quoted Miqati as telling ministers on Monday that he hoped “Lebanon would achieve the successes that we got used to seeing.”
Lebanon plays the UAE in Abu Dhabi . It needs just a single point from its match in order to advance to the next round.
The national team has become a big surprise in its advances in the qualification rounds thanks to head coach Theo Bucker, who took over in August.
