Citing a “series of weak performances,” the Qatar Football Association has fired Brazilian coach Sebastiao Lazaroni after only four months with the national team.

Among the most recent disappointments is Qatar’s failed to progress beyond the group stage in the Arab Games last week.

According to QNA, Lazaroni’s “contract was terminated in a friendly way” and he was “thanked for his efforts.”

AP reports:

The Gulf nation has never qualified for the World Cup and is under pressure to improve after becoming the first Arab country to win hosting rights to football’s biggest event.

Any predictions on who QFA will hire next?
