Saudi Arabia

Oman 0 - Saudi Arabia 0

Our first game with the national team of Saudi Arabia where we 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 must overcome the psychological factor.

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

Now we hope the next game against Australia with enthusiasm.

National Team Saudi Arabia

In early July Frank Rijkaard was named 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 have accepted with great enthusiasm and in my case, being a national team represents an even greater challenge and greater responsibility.

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