The hosts have beaten Bahrain and Nepal in Group H without conceding a goal yet, while Yemen are on three points after beating Nepal and losing to Bahrain.

With Asia set to benefit from eight automatic spots at the expanded 2026 World Cup in North America, UAE are one of a host of nations that will be ramping up their efforts to capitalise on this golden opportunity.

Based on FIFA’s world rankings, UAE are the ninth best team in Asia, which would mean that they should be qualifying for the final playoff spot at the very least.

That ranking would have been higher had they not suffered a surprise penalty-shootout defeat to Tajikistan at the recent Asian Cup in January, with Jordan benefitting from that shocking last-16 exit to eventually reach the final.

Meanwhile, Yemen have only ever qualified for one Asian Cup in their history – when finishing bottom of Group D without a point in UAE in 2019 – so it is no surprise that they have never come close to reaching the World Cup.

Miroslav Soukup’s side ended a winless run of 14 matches across all competitions to beat Sri Lanka 4-1 on aggregate in the first round of qualifying, but they were disppointed to lose 2-0 to Bahrain in their opening match at the group stage.

However, they bounced back to beat Nepal 2-0 in Kathmandu in their last game in November, with Omar Al-Dahi and Mohammed Abdullah Al-Dahi both scoring towards the end of the game.

That result means that they are likely to be the nation pushing UAE and Bahrain for one of the two spots to reach the final round of qualifying.

UAE Team News

UAE will be without their all-time record goalscorer Ali Mabkhout, who did not play a single minute at the recent Asian Cup due to injury.

Fabio Lima (10 goals) and Caio Canedo (nine goals) are likely to carry their nation’s goalscoring burden in the absence of Mabkhout.

Yemen Team News

Yemen will look to their captain Abdulwasea Al Matari as a source of inspiration. The 29-year-old, who plays for Sitra Club in Bahrain, is the only player named in the squad to have reached double figures in terms of international goals.
