Nearly 40 football supporters from Oman were injured on Friday evening after a glass barrier broke during celebrations following the country’s Gulf Cup win over the United Arab Emirates.

The incident occurred at the Jaber International Stadium after Oman claimed the title for the second time in the nation’s history with a 5-4 penalty shoot-out win following a scoreless 120 minutes play.
