Lebanon coach Miodrag Raduolovic spoke with unerring conviction in his call to arms on the eve of the Cedars' opening Asian Cup game against Qatar Wednesday.Lebanon certainly had the quality to trouble Qatar, if not the means to express themselves under of Radulovic's vapid tactics.So limp was the performance, so devoid of any adventure against a bang average Qatar side, that one shudders at the thought of facing the eminently superior Saudis Saturday.Ali Hamam's disallowed goal Wednesday was conveniently used to deflect from the true reasons Lebanon meekly fell to Qatar. Then there's surprise package India who, despite being 16 places below Lebanon in the FIFA rankings at 97, have managed to win over the neutrals with an exciting brand of attacking football.Lebanon, lest you forget, ditched their defensive proclivities for a more enterprising approach in qualification, blasting 14 goals to finish unbeaten on top of Group B with 16 points.
