He said that he assumes that when the Arab teams play against big international teams, their focus should be on playing with a fighting spirit on the field, since the result is in the knowledge of the unseen, and this is what the Arab teams did in the World Cup.
He said that the secret of its brilliance in the world championship is playing with a high fighting spirit, describing Morocco's achievement in the World Cup as an example to follow, and that the national team reached distant stages in the tournament until the semi-finals, due to the collective performance and fighting spirit on the field of the Moroccan players, besides that they were on "One man's heart", which helped them outperform major international teams, and go far in the tournament.
He told «Emirates Today» that «Moroccan achievement in the World Cup, and the great results it achieved proves the importance of the external professionalism of the Emirati player in foreign leagues, if this is possible, because this is a positive thing for UAE football».
He indicated that he hopes in the coming seasons to see Emirati players professional outside the country, saying that this gives the players an incentive to experience professionalism and break down psychological barriers.
Al-Hosani considered that what happened in the Qatar World Cup proves that there is no impossible in football, as long as there is a high and combative spirit on the field, and stressed that the UAE national team has the capabilities and the desire to go far in tournaments, but there must be more focus, and that Benefit from what happened in the Qatar World Cup.
Regarding the extent to which they benefited as Emirati players from the Moroccan experience in terms of breaking the psychological barrier for the Gulf and Arab player, Al Hosani explained: “The issue of breaking the psychological barrier was supposed to happen from previous periods and not now, but now it has faded after the distinguished appearance of the Arab teams in this World Cup in which the ball reached Arabic is very advanced.
He added, "The Arab teams in previous tournaments were thinking not to lose by big results, but this matter faded in the World Cup in Qatar."
Al-Hosani said, "The current version of the World Cup witnessed a lot of things different from the previous versions, especially in terms of the convergence of technical levels among all the participating teams, so that there is no longer a small and a large team, and it also proved that there is no impossible in football, as long as there is Will, desire and fight on the field ».
Al-Hosani pointed out that in such tournaments, the teams do not think about performance, but rather about the result in the first place.
He continued, "What caught my eye in the tournament also were the goalkeepers, especially the Moroccan goalkeeper Yassin Bono, the Croatian goalkeeper Dominik Levakovic, the French goalkeeper Hugo Louis, as well as the Saudi goalkeeper Mohammed Al Owais, who performed well."
He added, "The Moroccan national team continued its career in the tournament until the semi-finals, while the Saudi national team exited the group stage with honor and its head held high, as well as the Tunisian national team that defeated the French national team, and the fact that the Arab teams broke psychological barriers."
Adel Al Hosani confirmed that for him as a goalkeeper, he benefited a lot from the World Cup, because as goalkeepers they can make mistakes without seeing them, and they always focus on matters related to goalkeeping, indicating that he has gained new experiences in this regard.
And he continued: «I was following most of the goalkeepers of the participating teams in the World Cup, especially Bono, Dominic and Hugo, and considered them the most prominent goalkeepers of the tournament, and it seemed clear from their personalities and directions on the field that they are great goalkeepers».
Al-Hosani indicated that he "admires more the players of the Moroccan national team, especially Sofiane Amrabat and Ezzeddine Onahi, as well as the French national team player Aurelien Chouamini," noting that these players presented good levels.
