Later, in February 2012, in the final game of the Third Round of AFC qualifying, El Haddad refereed the match between Bahrain and last place Indonesia, who were without many of its most experienced players due to a dispute between the two competing Indonesian national leagues.[3] Going into the match, Bahrain needed at least a 9-goal victory over the Indonesians and a loss by group rivals Qatar in Tehran in order to advance to the Fourth Round of qualifying. Bahrain won the match 10-0, a record victory for Bahrain and a record defeat for Indonesia.[4][5]
