Doha: A deadline given by Gulf Cup organisers asking Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to play in next month’s tournament, hosted by Qatar, has passed without response. Organisers told AFP yesterday that they would now meet later this week to decide whether to go ahead with the tournament. “There was  no response, we didn’t receive any responses at all,” said Gulf Cup football Federation general secretary Jassim al-Rumaihi. “A decision will be made on the 16th.” Asked if he thought any tournament was likely, Rumaihi responded: “I hope so. Let’s be optimistic on this.”
The tournament could still take place but just be played between Qatar, Iraq, Oman, Kuwait and Yemen.
