In a close encounter against an obviously fired-up Bahrein team, Egypt manages to record a minimal victory. But this victory is enough to see them push to the semis as group winners.

The only scorer in the match was Khaled Abdel Halim.

Kuwait finished its Arab Futsal Cup campaign with a big 8-1 victory against Mauritania. Although not progressing through, there are a lot of positives for Kuwaiti players and staff to take from this tournament. They lost against an obviously strong Bahrein team, drew against one of the tournament favorites and hosts Egypt, and recorded a dominant victory against Mauritania.

Mauritania's first official futsal outing ends with a three-loss record. There is obviously plenty of work to be done, but we have no doubt whatsoever that the beautiful sport of futsal will have a strong presence in Mauritania in the years to come.

Abdul Latif Al-Abbasi and Abdulrahman Al-Taweel were stars of the evening, scoring three goals each for Kuwait. Abdulrahman Al-Masbahi and Salem Alsumaie joined them on the scoresheet. Muhammad M'hamed scored for Mauritania.

The 2021 Arab Futsal Cup continues today with Group B deciders. Tournament favorites Morocco will face Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates will play against Comoros.
