Our Olympic team closed the file of a heavy loss with a clean six against host Uzbekistan in the second round of the first group of the AFC U-23 Cup, which is currently taking place in Uzbekistan until the 19th of this month, with the participation of 16 teams.
Our team entered the atmosphere of preparations for the last and decisive round against the Turkmen national team, where Annabi clings to the last chance to qualify for the quarter-finals in the event of a victory over the Turkmen team with any result and a loss or a draw for Iran against the Uzbek team. Otherwise, Annabi will bid farewell to the tournament from the group stage. The physical players went through the hospitalization process yesterday at the mission’s residence in the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the capital Tashkent, and to check on the players’ condition. The owner of the hospitalization training is a great work on the mental level to prepare the players in all respects for the confrontation that does not accept half-solutions, as the technical and administrative staff asked the players to forget the match of the Uzbek team He put all their focus on facing the Turkmen national team in search of victory and there is no alternative to it in order to qualify in the event that Iran stumbles in a draw or loss against the Uzbek team in the last round. And erase the negative image that they appeared in the previous confrontation, and it is scheduled to conclude Al-Anab He is preparing to meet the Turkmen national team with a final training today at the Milli Stadium “Bunyodkor”, which will host our last match tomorrow in the group stage with the Turkmen national team. To the next round of the tournament, especially since the opportunity still exists and the technical staff, led by the Chilean Nicolas Cordova, seeks to exploit it in an ideal way to accomplish the task to the fullest, especially since what Al-Annabi has presented so far in the tournament does not satisfy him nor the players who represent the future of Qatari football in the next stage. The Annabi coach and his assistants will also try as much as possible to remedy the grave mistakes that the players made and caused the unexpected heavy loss against the host team. The group entered strongly in the struggle for the second qualifying card for the group after the first card of Salal was decided The Uzbek team won two matches in the first two matches, and therefore the coach will try to push all his cards against the Turkmen team in search of victory, hoping to be served by the result of Iran and Uzbekistan in order to snatch the second qualification card from the first group.

Cordova seeks to make changes
Chilean Nicolas Cordova will have to search the papers available to him from the players in order to make after the substitutions on the starting line-up for the fateful meeting against the Uzbek team at the end of the first group matches in the group stage, especially as he insisted on starting with a fixed lineup in the first two matches and despite stumbling in a tie in the first match against Iran He started the second match against the national team with the same names that he started with the first match, and the result was a heavy loss. He tried to remedy it by making adjustments to the lineup, but it was too late, and although our only goal in the tournament was the equalizer with Iran that came from the substitute Ahmed Al-Janhi, but he did not participate in the second match except for having to. After Hashem Ali was injured in the second half, so some of the substitutes deserve the opportunity in the decisive meeting of the Turkmen national team in the last round. It is expected that after the names from the beginning, the starting lineup will appear, especially since some of the main players are not physically ready for the important and fateful confrontation.
Hamad Al Khalqi: We apologize to the Qatari fans
