Despite the shuffled 11, Lebanon started brightly inside the Karbala stadium thanks in large to Mohammad Haidar's creativity in an advanced midfield role.The 25-year-old drew a fine early save from Lebanon keeper Mustafa Matar with a rasping strike before producing a slide-rule ball for Ahmad Maher, who could only muster a tame effort.No sooner had Lebanon been pegged back than they were staring at a halftime deficit as Mootaz al-Jounaidi needlessly bundled over Matari in the box.Matari rifled his spot-kick into the top corner to leave hapless Lebanon, and Ciobotariu, smarting at halftime.The Romanian introduced Cedars captain Hasan Maatouk on the hour mark but Lebanon struggled to break down Yemen's massed ranks.
