UAE WANTS APOLOGY: The UAE Football Association has "demanded an official apology" from the Asian Football Confederation for the "disrespect" shown toward the national team in an article on the AFC official website. The post read about the performance of the team in its previous eight Asian Cup finals appearances and translated the team's nickname "Al Abyad" as "Sand Monkeys." The team's nickname translates correctly to "The Whites" (THE NATIONAL, 10/14)
MEET AND GREET: National Olympic Committee of Cambodia President and Tourism Minister Thong Khon called officials from all affiliated sports federations for a meeting "with the aim of drawing up a shortlist of disciplines," which would receive special training schedules both at home and abroad in the lead up to next year's Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar.
