Saudi Arabia

Oman 0 - 0 Saudi Arabia

Our first game with the national team of Saudi Arabia which have obtained a creditable goalless draw in the attacking half. In the last two clashes had suffered two defeats with that selection so that we were facing a difficult game where you had to overcome the psychological factor.

The team first used 4-3-3 with an ambitious young players and came very close to winning the match with numerous chances including a shot to the post. We have had good reviews in the press and is creating a climate of enthusiasm about this new project.

Now we wait for the next game against Australia forward.

Saudi Arabia National Team

In early July Frank Rijkaard was appointed new coach of Saudi Arabia and with him I have joined as a member of the coaching staff of the national team by Coach 2nd.

It is a new challenge that we accepted with great enthusiasm and in my case, being a national team is a still greater challenge and more responsibility.

Our goal is to qualify for the finals of the 2014 World Cup and making the team Arabia get the best possible result.
