The technical staff of the national football team decided to exclude five players from the current gathering of the national team in Dubai for their lack of preparedness, namely Ahmed Khalil, Walid Abbas, Hassan Saleh, Mohamed Abdel-Rahman and Mohammed Marzouk, while both Al-Ahly youth players Yusuf Jaber and Al-Jazeera Salem Rashid were included.

Today, Sunday, the national team performed its second training at the Thiab Awana Stadium in Dubai, with 22 players participating

The team will conclude its current internal gathering tomorrow, Monday, to resume its training again next March in preparation for their matches against Malaysia and Indonesia on March 26 and 31 within the joint qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup and 2023 Asian Cup.

The Serbian national team coach Jovanovic during the training session today divided the yellow teams, led by Omar Abdel Rahman, Muhammad Fawzi, Habib Al-Fardan and Al-Ahmar, led by Ali Mabkhout, Tariq Ahmed and Muhammad Barghash.

Coach Jovanovic was keen to set up this gathering at this time to get to know the players who were chosen in the new list and to find their technical levels after he took over the national team’s training to succeed former Dutch coach Marwijk.
