Our first team player Ali Afif asserted that the confrontation that gathered the team with Umm Salal team this evening was highly tactical , and Afif said in a statement after the end of the match : " Thank God for everything and the match was difficult because we faced a team that wants to get away from the last places , so the tactic was the dominant in the confrontation at all times , and the reliance of Umm Salal on the defensive method was evident throughout the match with reliance on the counterattacks .

Afif continued by : " We should have played from the sides , but we relied on the long balls , which facilitated the task of Umm Salal players , but in the end the draw does not mean our loss to the top place , we are so far in the top place and we have to correct the mistakes and work on appearing better in our upcoming match ".
