Mahdi Ali: The many stops in the Orouba match deprived us of the 3 points

A negative knot accompanies Al-Ahly youth for the fourth season

Mahdi Ali: “We did not deal well with the match in the first half. The effectiveness was greater in the second.”

Al-Ahly youth failed to break the negative knot that has accompanied it since the 2017-2018 season, as it was unable to achieve a third consecutive victory in the first three rounds with the start of the football season, in a scene repeated for the fourth consecutive season, by falling into the trap of a 1-1 draw. Against its host, Al-Orouba, the day before yesterday, in the third round of the ADNOC Professional League.

The men of the national coach, Mahdi Ali, were only able to reach the Arab net once, through the Brazilian midfielder Eduardo, while Al-Ahly youth players were waiting for the gifts of the mouse technique, which did not give them any penalty during the four times that stopped playing for the season. In the claims of Al-Ahly Youth Stars to calculate a penalty kick, to no avail. Shabab Al-Ahly’s losses were not limited to losing two points in his struggle with Al-Ain and Sharjah to occupy the top spot in the general standings, but he overflowed with his generosity over Arabism, to give him the first point in the professionals and give him confidence after two disappointing rounds against Al-Wahda and Al-Nasr, during which he received nine goals, and enabled the player of Arabism, Ahmed Musa. To be the first player in Al-Arabiya to score a goal for him, so that Al-Ahly youth failed to keep the cleanliness of the net that withstood the Emirates and Ajman.

Al-Ahly youth coach, Mahdi Ali, called on his players to forget the result and think about the upcoming matches. He said in a press statement: “We did not deal with the match well in the first half. The effectiveness was greater in the second half.”

He added, "The many stops affected the match. We lost easy chances in the second half. I thank the players for what they gave in the end. Al-Uruba was in decline and played with a good defensive organization with counter-attacks. In the end, we have an important match against Sharjah in the next round and we must be at the top." Our focus and dedication to win it.”

“The Mouse” did not award Shabab Al-Ahly any penalty during the 4 times it stopped playing.
