After this crucial match against Oman, the White Wolves’ head coach Hector Cuper attended the post-match press conference.
“Of course, Oman showed a great football on the pitch this evening. We should make the opponents to lose the ball, but it was really hard for my lads. I may tell that there were two different 45-minute periods, we played well enough in the first half, but not the second one. Oman dominated the game as we had troubles in both defence and front.
“I also believed that we would earn 3 points after even we conceded a goal. Our team are really happy to start 2019 AFC Asian Cup with a victory.
“Our players are physically good. However, they were nervous moments because it was the first match for us here. In the next matches, we will try to correct these mistakes.
