The team held the last training session yesterday under the supervision of coach Fajr Ibrahim, who reassured the high technical readiness of the main lineup that will start the meeting and the session included exercises for special tactical cases and the implementation of fixed balls.
"The team's preparations were limited to training sessions," said Ibrahim. "The team has great experience alongside the young players, with whom we have started a step in the right way to build a new team with an average age below 25 years."
"In football, nothing is guaranteed except what they offer on the pitch. This is the most important for us, and now Asian football is in development. To achieve our goal with high concentration.
Ibrahim said that the team has adapted to play away from home, despite the importance of the ground staff and the public deprivation created a great incentive for the players to achieve good results.
