Our goal is to beat Al Sailiya: Al Rayyan U-23 coach Souza


Al Rayyan Under-23 coach Gilson Souza spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 21 match against Al Sailiya.

“We want to compensate for our loss to Al Gharafa and our subsequent slip to the third place. We lost to Al Gharafa even though we were not so bad. There are certain things that contribute to winning and losing. If it’s not your day on the pitch…

“Al Sailiya are a good team and Al Rayyan are also improving after every game. We will try to win back the third position.

“Our team focuses on both defending and attacking. When we go on the offensive to get victory, we expose ourselves in the defence and the rivals score.

“The competition is intense among the top-four teams. We are directly vying with Al Sailiya and the outcome will be important,” said Souza.
