Qatar U-23 national team will host Oman for two friendlies on November 9 and 12.
The matches will prepare Felix Sanchez’s boys for the 2018 AFC U-23 Championship Finals in China next year.
The encounters initiate the cooperation agreement signed between QFA and its Omani counterpart two weeks ago.
Last month, Qatar drew Mexico 2-2 in the first friendly since qualifying to the AFC U-23 Championship.
As Group C winners, Qatar automatically qualified for the AFC U-23 Championship while Syria finished second.
According to AFC rules, the five best runners-up across all groups will also qualify for the finals. However, if hosts China win their group or are among the best five runners-up, the sixth best runner-up will also qualify. The draw for the China event will be held today.
