Al Moez: We Have to Excel in Front of Al Arabi & We Lack the Playmaker…

Al Duhail team captain Al Moez Ali emphasized on the team’s readiness for the anticipated game versus Al Arabi in Round of the EXPO Stars League scheduled next Saturday evening. He said in the pre-match press conference held on Wednesday evening: We are ready for this match and keen to score points, and we know well that we will face a team that has a lot of strength, and we still have to work hard in order to come out with a positive result against them and come out with the full match points.

Al Moez said: The team is accomplishing what is required so far, which is to achieve points and the performance will improve with time, but the most important thing in the first matches in the league is to achieve victory. There are 22 matches, and the first matches are always the influential ones. Therefore, we now do not look at the performance as much as we look at the results, but we will try to reduce the mistakes in the upcoming matches and maintain the good results.

Al Moez continued: I am there to help the team achieve the required results, and I stay away from scoring due to the absence of a playmaker, but I play the role required of me, which always puts my team in the lead.

Al Moez concluded: The AFC Champions League group stage draw put us in a good group, and we must work hard and collect points in order to advance to the next rounds, and the tournament will certainly not be easy.
