An unexpected surprise: the UAE's loss to Indonesia will not affect "Al-Obeid"
The national team is facing a decisive confrontation when it plays against Indonesia tomorrow in the double qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup and the 2023 Asian Cup, as "Al-Abyad" seeks to continue victories to advance to the top of the list of Group G.
Despite the importance of the match for the UAE national team, but in the event of an unexpected surprise, if Al-Abyad loses against Indonesia tomorrow, the result will not affect the team's chances of competing for second place in Group Seven.
After North Korea announced their withdrawal from the qualifiers, the Asian Confederation decided to cancel the results of the teams that rank last in all groups, to determine the identity of the best five teams that will occupy the second place to qualify for the third stage of the World Cup qualifiers.
"Al-Abyad" is currently ranked third in the list of teams competing for the five seats allocated to the best teams occupying second place, as the team has nine points, equal with Uzbekistan, Iran and Oman, while Lebanon leads the standings with 10 points, after a deduction from each team. The points he got from the team that occupies the last place in their group, but the technical staff of the team focuses on avoiding entering into the calculations of the last round of the second stage of the qualifiers by defeating Indonesia and Vietnam to advance the team to first place.
