Dubai rout Diego Maradona's Al Wasl 5-0

Diego Maradona's side suffered their heaviest defeat of the season in the Etisalat Cup.

Diego Maradona's Al Wasl side suffered the heaviest defeat in the first four rounds of the Etisalat Cup, succumbing 5-0 to Dubai last night.

Maradona appeared to play his best XI available, including his three South Americans, but Wasl unravelled after Dubai's Hassan Mohammed broke the deadlock with a goal in the 71st minute.

Abubakr Camara scored four minutes later, and Simon Pierre Feindouno two minutes after that. Nabil Daoudi confirmed the rout with a goal in the 89th minute, and Camara completed it with a goal in injury time.

It was a fine debut for Dubai's Romanian coach, Ion Marin. Wasl have conceded nine goals in their last two defeats.
