  • Don’t know anything about your opposition. Do you think that was a good result and are you looking forward with a good feeling towards the new season?

  • They seem to be a good side, few players was at the world cup. They have a few internationalists but that does not tell you a lot as all for minor arab states. Think its a good result though but i never really take very much from pre season games
