DUBAI: It was easily the worst day of Omar Abdulrahman’s career.The UAE’s star man has enjoyed a charmed few years, winning titles with his club Al Ain, garnering international acclaim for his performances with his country and, last year, being officially recognized as Asia’s finest player.On Friday it all went wrong at the Gulf Cup final; a 90th minute penalty miss let Oman off the hook when triumph was agonizingly within reach, before another spotkick failure gave the Sultanate the...
DUBAI: Ali Khaled, our man on the ground, takes a look back at the finals the UAE and Oman previously competed in...: The UAE had never won the cup before and got off to the worst possible start with defeat to Oman in Abu Dhabi. But led by the brilliant Ismail Matar, they built up momentum as the tournament progressed and memorably beat Kuwait 3-2 with a last minute winner.
DUBAI: Ali Khaled looks at where tonight’s Gulf Cup final clash in Kuwait may be won and lost and who may well hold the key to victory…: Faultless, at least statistically. Alberto Zaccheroni has unsurprisingly imbued a sense of solidity and pragmatism in the UAE’s defense that was perhaps missing from the Mahdi Ali era. The long-standing center-half partnership of Mohanad Salem and Ismail Ahmed has been ably backed by the rest of the team. The result, not a single conceded in Kuwait.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
