Football result in Oman

the home side won – but it still would have been good for our team to win

Al Taawn ‘The Co-operation Team’, the football team we sponsor, were at a disadvantage playing against the Island Falcons – it was an away game. Both teams are from Quriyat – but the game was on the Island Falcons own pitch .

With good attacking players the Island Falcons managed to do what all teams playing at home should do – they won and unfortunately, Al Taawn are out of the tournament

It was a good lesson for Al Taawn, attackers are the way to win.

The Club Cup later in the year will hopefully see Al Taawn at least reach the top two.
