Rashid Sumila misses out on Asian Champions League Group stage slot with Al Qadisa
Rashid Sumaila and his Kuwaiti side Qadsia SC missed out on qualification to the Asian Champions League Group stage after conceding in extra-time to lose 2-1 to Saudi side Al Ahli on Tuesday.
The centre-back played the entire duration at the King Abdullah Sports City stadium.
AFC Cup holders Qadsia took the lead shortly after the half hour mark through a stunning strike from Bader Al Motawaa but with seven minutes of the tie remaining Omar Al Soma levelled for the hosts from the penalty spot, after an infringement that saw Khaled Al Qahtani red carded, and forced extra-time.
And it was Al Bassas' late winner that ensured Al Ahli take their place in Group D alongside Hazfi Cup winners Tractorsazi Tabriz of Iran, the United Arab Emirates champions Al Ahli and Uzbek club Nasaf Qarshi.
Sumaila is on a six-month loan spell at Qadisa from South African side Mamelodi Sundowns.
