Lebanon had the upper hand in the game and was controlling the game’s tempo. Ali TNEICH scored the first goal, the Jordanian players took advantage of our defense mistakes and scored 2 goals in 2 minutes to take the lead. Ali TNEICH scored the equalizer goal before halftime.
In the second half our players showed a total dominance counting on the good rotation of players we have! Karim ABOU ZEID scored 2 goals as Ali TNEICH added a goal to his team to sign a Hatrick in the game.
Lebanon’s coach Paco ARAUJO was saticified with what we have offered on offense but he’s still worry about the unsetteled defense. “Our defense mistakes are costing us a lot, the players should focus more while defending. It is important to fix this problem before facing the big teams in Asia” – said Paco. “That is the importance of the preparation games, you can read & see where you should improve your team” – Paco added.
