He justified selecting the four players as Mohammed Jamal and Saeed Al Minhali are scheduled to join the National Service. Also, the first team would be missing Mohammed Ahmad and Mohammed Saeed due to injury.

Responding to a question on the pre-match preparation, he said: “The team’s preparations are ongoing per the head coach’s pre-set plan. The team is playing their fifth friendly match before flying on Friday evening via a private jet.”
