New visitor for 2008

It's been a while since we added a new country to our visitor roll call, but someone from Qatar stopped by.
For such a tiny country, Qatar has a pretty impressive record in soccer, especially on the youth level.
The national team's nickname is Annabi and it means The Maroon - owning to the cool color of their flag, which is also incorporated into the federation logo shown here.
Hussain Yassar, the foward/midfielder who is Qatar's number ten, now plays for Sporting Braga in Portugal. He was the first Qatari to play in the Premiership, for Stuart Pierce at Manchester City.
