Edmilson: We played a good game

Edmilson da Silva, the star of today’s match, confirmed that Al Duhail deserved the victory that he scored against Uzbekistan’s Pakhtakor team in the third round of the AFC Champions League.

Speaking in front of the media at the press conference, Edmilson said: “We played at a good level and won against a team that also played well and succeeded in getting ahead of us twice, but our persistence led us to the result we were looking for.

Edmilson said: “Despite our control of the first half, we did not manage to score against the Uzbek team, which is due to many reasons. But we tackled it all and entered the second half fully concentrated and everyone played their part until they managed to come out with victory.”
