But Lebanon has never made it to this final stage of WC qualifying, so this is a big boost for sure. And Antar also played with FC Koln in the Bundesliga as well from 2007-2009, with teammate Yousef Mohammed. Mohamad is also the best Lebanese defender of all time, the guy was captain of Koln until he left last year to play for UAE club Al-Ahli (probably for money, as they got $ to blow over there). I actually wanted TFC to take a look at bringing him over as a DP, but that was never going to happen.
I remember interest was huge back in 2000 when the Asian Cup was hosted there.
