Saudi Arabia booked their place in the Asian Cup knockout stages as they made it two wins from two in Group E with a 2-0 triumph over Lebanon on Saturday. 

Fahad Al Muwallad scored for the second successive game for Juan Antonio Pizzi’s impressive side, who had brushed aside 10-man North Korea 4-0 in their opener at this year’s tournament. 

A beneficial break off a Lebanon defender teed up Fawad to smash home the loose ball with his right foot, the ball flashing beyond goalkeeper Mehdi Khalil before he had time to react. 

Saudi Arabia doubled their lead in the 67th minute, Hussain Almoqahwi poking home from close range, as they recorded back-to-back victories at an Asian Cup for the first time since 1996 – the year they last went on to be crowned champions.
