Crespo: We will defend our Identity…

Coach Hernan Crespo ensured that his team will enter the AFC Champions League 2022 Quarterfinal match versus Al Shabab (KSA) scheduled next Thursday evening to defend their identity. The coach said in the pre-match press conference that was held at 11 am today in the press conference hall at Al Thumama Stadium: Glad to reach the quarterfinal round and we will play to defend the identity of the team, its chances, and desire to overcome this round and reach the semifinal.

Crespo said: We are the only team that played 120 minutes in the previous round after our match versus Al Rayyan reached a penalty shootout, but we have the time for the players’ recovery from the fatigue that hit them in that match and we will be ready for the next match.

The coach concluded: I always focus on my team and I do not think about the opposing team, and we must adapt to any squad that we face and Al Duhail has players with distinct levels in all lines and there are attackers who know their way to the nets and the important thing is how to create opportunities in order to score goals.
