The technical committee chose the team player Bassam Al-Rawi as the star of the match after the amazing level in which the player played. The player was at the press conference after the end of the match and he spoke about the match, saying: “The most important thing for us is the three points. So far, we cannot say that Al Duhail has qualified, but we’ve achieved a good victory. We carried out the instructions of the technical staff and performed well during the match and that made us come out with a victory.”
Bassam said: I have not scored in the Asian Championship before, and this goal is the first for me, and it was important for me and for the team, because it was Al Duhail’s first goal in the match. God willing, it will give me the motivation to perform what is expected of me in the upcoming matches and help the team reach the next round of competition.
