On the other hand, Uzbekistan managed to get back into the match in the second half. And struck the equalizer at a critical time.

Kasmin said: “I thank the Sharjah players for the sacrifices they made in the match because this kind of match requires a lot of sacrifice from the players.”

Commenting on the inclusion of Malian striker Moussa Marega in place of Thigali at the start of the match, Kasmin said he played as Moussa in the match and scored for Sharjah: “We knew Nassaf would attack before the match. Big offensive power, and this thing will create gaps in its defense, so I wanted to add “I have three fast players in the attack line, which is the strategy we played in the match.”

Regarding Sharjah goalkeeper Adel Al-Hosani’s two penalty kick saves in this match and the previous match against Nassaf, Kasmin confirmed, “Al-Hosani’s ability to save two penalty kicks in the team’s two matches against Nassaf is a sign of great effort in saving both kicks.”

The Sharjah coach pointed out that all three teams, Sharjah, Nassab and Al Sadd, still have strong chances to qualify for the next round, assuming qualification will be decided by a few points and insisting that next. This round will reveal the characteristics of the teams that will qualify for the next round.
