Oman blank Singapore in friendly!!.

MUSCAT — Oman, playing under new coach Julio Cesar Ribas for the first time, made a positive start to their preparations for the 2010 World Cup qualifiers with a 2-0 victory over Singapore yesterday. The friendly match played at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex provided the newly appointed Uruguyan coach an opportunity to have a look at the ‘real’ team in a match situation for the first time. “It was a very important match. It gave me a chance to see all the main players in action and also see how they play together as a team,” said Ribas after the match. “We fielded all the main players and made only one substitution because I wanted to see the real players in real match situation,” added the Uruguyan.

Ribas also sounded satisfied with the players performance in his first outing as coach. “As I said it was very important match as we are now closer to the World Cup qualifiers. I am happy the way the boys played today. They played better and had the proceedings under their control for most part of the match,” said Ribas adding “I am also happy for all the spectators as they are treated to a good game of soccer.” For the record, experienced striker Imaad al Hosni and midfielder Hassan Mudhaffar scored the goals for Oman in the sixth and eighth minutes respectively. Oman yesterday fielded entire first team, with the exception of Bolton Wanderers’ goalkeeper Ali al Habsi, whose place under the bar was taken by Badr Juma.

The team also tried young Mohammed Abdullah in defence alongside captain Mohammed Rabee’a and Khalifa Ayil while the midfield was ably manned by Mudhaffar, Ahmed Hadeed, Ahmed Mubarak ‘Kanu’, Fauzi Basheer and Ismal al Ajmi. Imaad had Badr al Maimani for the company in the forwardline. After dominating the first half, Oman made a few experiments in the second, during which they made the only change bringing in talented striker Hashim Saleh in place of Badr al Maimani. They tried to score from free-kicks and long rangers though with little success. But Khalifa Ayil’s trade mark bullet shots provided some entertainment for the spectators.



Besides Badr Juma, who was making a comeback into the team, the new coaching staff also called up several former internationals for the 25-member team, including Hani Dhabit, Hamdi Hubeis & Nabeel Ashoor. “It is good to have all these experienced players back in the team. We will definitely gain from their experience, especially with the World Cup qualifiers round the corner,” said captain Mohammed Rabee’a.
Oman play another friendly against Kuwait on Wednesday before they start their qualifying campaign against Bahrain at home on February 6.



Oman-Singapore friendly today
Date - 27 Jan 2008
The Oman senior national football team will play a friendly match against Singapore at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex today. Oman, who will be playing their first match under newly appointed coach Julio Cesar Ribas, are preparing for the 2010 World Cup qualifying matches. They are also scheduled to play another friendly against Kuwait Wednesday.



“It was a good warm-up for Oman and I am confident of building a good team,” said Ribas after the match. However, Ribas must have found out that all his star professional players were a bit rusty in their approach and might need a few more strong training sessions to get back into the rhythm.

Ribas actually played all the professionals in the match and the line-up was similar to that of Milan Macala’s famed combination in the previous two Gulf Cups.

Ribas has 25 players in the camp now and it is brimming with experience, but it has to watched how good the individuals are as age is catching up.

“We will continue to have closed camps with two sessions of workout every day and I believe that the performance in the next match against Kuwait will be even better.”

Ribas also has very little time in his hand as he needs to put a winning combination in the home World Cup qualifying match against Bahrain on February 6.

“I am happy that our players were good in all departments and will improve,” the Uruguayan added.

Going against the trend, yesterday’s friendly surprisingly attracted a good audience. May be the message of Ribas playing a full-strength team had spread rather quickly attracting a decent crowd.

“We need experienced players to form a good outfit and it is good to see players like Hani Al Dhabit and others returning. We played well yesterday, but this is the first time after a long gap we are together and I hope we will build-up well for the match against Bahrain.”
However, the skipper also agreed that the match on Wednesday against Kuwait will be good test.
OFA chairman Sayyid Khalid Al Busaidi was also rejoicing the win yesterday as he revealed his jubilance with a big compliment (a hug) to coach Ribas.
