Asian Cup 2019 Final

Graphic News

February 1, 2019 -- Japan and Qatar contest the AFC Asian Cup final at the Zayed Sports City Stadium, in Abu Dhabi, with the winner crowned continental champions.

With both teams on six-match winning streaks at the tournament, the final between Japan and Qatar promises to be an intriguing battle. The previous nine matches between the pair have been relatively even, with Japan recording three victories, most recently in 2011, to Qatar’s two. The other four matches ended in draws.

Japan, chasing a fifth Asian Cup title, are back in the showpiece final after a surprise quarter-final elimination in 2015. After topping Group F they notched up victories over Saudi Arabia and Vietnam in the knock-out stages, before key striker Yuya Osako netted twice in the semi-final triumph over Iran.

Qatar, having their best ever performance at the Asian Cup, defeated Iraq in the Last 16 and dispatched competition favourites South Korea in the quarter-finals. Tournament top goalscorer Almoez Ali netted his eighth goal in a comfortable 4-0 semi-final win over host nation the United Arab Emirates.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
