The new national squad, announced by Dutch coach Van Marwijk, saw a lot of surprises and raised questions about some of the choices and absences in the list.
The street believes that the names of some of the names with the national team in the coming period is a sympathy for what they provided last season in the league championship.
The most noteworthy of this list is the exclusion of players such as Majid Hassan, Shaheen Abdulrahman and Saif Rashid, as well as the national team captain Ismail Matar, who appeared well with Al Wahda in the AFC Champions League. This is in exchange for calling the injured player Mohammed Akbari.
The team is preparing to run a training camp in Bahrain from 25th of September until 1 September. "It seems that the policy of choice has not changed from the past as there must be a large base of ready players in the national team," said former sports analyst and player Yasser Salem. There is a competition between them, we are here to say our point of view, and do not know what the opinion of the coaching staff or his view is closer to the players and clubs ». He added: «Solving this problem and repeated questions at each choice is to hold a press conference, to announce the list and receive opinions and answer the questions of the street sports, which may make sense such as the exclusion of the player and captain of Sharjah team Shaheen Abdulrahman, and I think it is one of the most brilliant and experienced players last season, He has enough experience even in dealing with the media, in addition to the exclusion of Saif Rashid, who is among the distinguished young players, and Majid Hassan, all names we think will benefit the team a lot, but certainly for the coaching opinion is another ».
As for the inclusion of a number of senior players, Yasser Salem said: «The presence of a number of old players in the list of the team is necessary and important, and the process of replacement and replacement should not be at the same time, especially since there are players who provide good levels despite the high age such as Walid Abbas, and this "It is normal in all teams, and we trust the technical and administrative staff and the presence of a coach the size of the Dutch Marvik, gives confidence to our team waiting to achieve the expected results."
