We want to exact revenge: Le Guen
By staff - Fri Jan 27, 8:49 am
For Oman, the much-anticipated and crucial World Cup qualification match against Thailand on February 29 in Muscat would be a ‘revenge’, according to national coach Paul Le Guen. “Our players need to stand up and give their best,” he said.
“We played carelessly in our first match against Thailand,” Le Guen added.
“But we want to look forward and take the positives of that match,” he said.
“We are in a situation to qualify. This is a golden chance for us. Let me dream that way but we will certainly be in a good position,” Le Guen said.
Thailand had outplayed Oman 3-0 in the opening match of the qualification round last year.
Meanwhile, Oman have had a superb win against Australia and have also drawn with Saudi Arabia for a bright chance to qualify to the next round of the 2014 World Cup.
Oman’s chances are bright if they beat Thailand and Australia defeat Saudi Arabia on the same day.
The team will begin their training at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex from February 1 to 6.
As part of the preparations, Oman will play a friendly match against India on February 23.
