Saudi Arabia

Oman 0 - Saudi Arabia 0

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 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 stick. We have had good reviews in the press and creates an atmosphere of excitement 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 national team coaching staff with the rank of 2nd Coach.

It is a new challenge that we accepted with great enthusiasm and in my case, to be 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 make the Saudi team get the best possible result.
