The national football team will play at 8 pm at Al-Maktoum Stadium in Al-Nasr Club in Dubai, facing an important confrontation against their guest Indonesia, known as «Garuda», in the second round of the seventh group of joint qualifying for the World Cup 2022 and Asian Cup 2023.
Al-Abyad aims to achieve four basic goals of the game, most notably: winning and raising his score to six points and lead the group and the removal of Thailand, who currently lead the standings with four points, in addition to appearing honorable to erase the modest image that appeared in his first match in this qualifier In the last round, despite winning 2-1, the team hopes to reconcile with their fans by regaining their character in their first match at home and in front of their fans in nearly eight months during the 2019 Asian Cup in the UAE.
The match in Indonesia, which is a big step towards achieving his goal in the qualification of the next round, is the second test faced by Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk since his leadership in white last March, succeeding former Italian coach Alberto Zaccheroni, as it was his first test against Malaysia. However, the team did not appear in that game with a character known so far, and beat Malaysia with difficulty in the last round, as Malaysia took the lead goal in the game, before the team regained its balance.
Al-Abyad, who ended his training session yesterday with a training session at Al-Maktoum Stadium, prepared for this match through a five-day indoor camp in Dubai during which Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk sought to remedy the mistakes that accompanied the Malaysia match and to find the appropriate combination to play this match. Especially since he kept in the new list most of the elements that played the match Malaysia. The team suffered during its last camp in Dubai, including several circumstances, in addition to the sudden exclusion of Sharjah player Majid Sorour because of violating the instructions of the technical and administrative staff, repeated injuries that led to the loss of the efforts of a number of players, most notably playmaker Khalfan Mubarak, forcing Coach Marvik to call some elements to fill the shortage, including Al-Ahly youth player Ismail Al Hammadi.
Marvik (67 years) in this game, in addition to the ground and the public as well as the psychological and moral aspects of the players, on the trio of Ali Mabkhout, who led the team to win in the match Malaysia, scoring the goals to win, as well as Omar Abdulrahman in case he was in full physical and technical readiness, as Amouri has not yet shown his form since recovering from injury after a recent cruciate ligament operation, as well as striker Ahmed Khalil, who returned to the national team again, after missing him in the match Malaysia for special circumstances. It is expected that the team will enjoy the support of the masses after the Football Association has recently held coordination meetings with the supporters of the clubs and urged them to fill the stands of Al Maktoum Stadium, as the UAE public is waiting to see Al-Abyad in a new way to check on his team in achieving a new achievement to qualify for the World Cup 2020.
Though historically white is the most likely match in the clashes between the two teams, football is not subject to the calculations of history but to giving in the green rectangle.
Indonesia's Simon McMinemi, 41, has a modest start to the tournament with two consecutive defeats to Malaysia and Thailand and is bottom of the group with no points. Indonesia have already played four tournaments at the AFC Asian Cup in 96, 2000, 2004 and 2007.
