Bahrain and Iraq finished their 23rd Arabian Gulf Cup opening match with one goal each on Saturday.

The first game of the clash, held at Kuwait Sport Club stadium, was average and the two teams were conservative in their movements.

Bahrain kept attacking and Jamal Rashed finally opened the score in the 34 minute of the second half.

But the Iraqis did not quit and succeeded in equalizing the score sheet via Muhannad Karrar's header in the 42nd minute.
