He explained: “We do not plan to prolong the match, but we will work to resolve the result in the original time. It is true that we lost from Al-Wahda in the last confrontation that brought us three goals without a response, but from my point of view, the result did not reflect the course and events of the meeting, as we were a strong match for Annabi.” Had it not been for the timing of Al Wahda’s first goal, which came in the last second of the end of the first half.”
