We must forget defeat and focus on Al Duhail match: Al Wakrah coach Marquez


Al Wakrah coach Marquez Lopez spoke to the media ahead of their 2020-21 season QNB Stars League Week 2 match against Al Duhail.

“There was not enough time to prepare for the match against Al Duhail as the gap between the first and second weeks is only three days. The players had a day off and two days to prepare for the meeting.

“We know very well that the first three weeks of the league are completely different from the rest and therefore we will try to put in our best efforts. We are prepared to face Al Duhail, the champions of last season.

“I admit that there must be mistakes in football, but sometimes those mistakes are not translated into goals. But we committed two mistakes against Al Ahli in the first match and that resulted in two goals.

“We must forget that defeat and focus on the Al Duhail match, and correct the mistakes we made in the game against Al Ahli,” said Marquez.
