Lebanon host Laos Thursday with renewed optimism for World and Asian Cup qualification after FIFA banned Group G rivals Kuwait from all international competition last month.Kuwait were sanctioned by football's governing body over government interference and have until Nov. 17 to resolve the situation or risk expulsion from World Cup qualifying. Failure to avoid expulsion could see Kuwait's 1-0 win and goalless draw with Lebanon annulled or indeed overturned, meaning Miodrag Radulovic's side would well and truly be back in the mix for a runners-up finish.Hasan Chaito, who recently made a goalscoring return to Ahed after months as a free agent, is expected to partner Haidar and Maatouk in Lebanon's three-pronged attack.
