Because of Al-Ittihad. Saudi journalist reveals the reason for Al-Hilal’s connection with Urawa
Saudi journalist Walid Omar, host of the Al-Manassa program on Alef Alif FM, wrote on his personal account on the microblogging website Twitter commenting on Al-Zaim’s draw with Urawa, saying that Al-Ittihad’s team was the reason. ,
Waleed Omar tweeted: “Al-Ittihad, led by Nono Santo, introduced technically Al-Hilal to the Japanese team Urawa Reds as the latter clearly excelled technically and physically.”
And he continued: “If the Japanese had a decisive player, or if their players managed to act in the last third attacking, the result would be two or three goals in the net.”
Now the leader of Saudi Arabia is waiting for the return match for the rematch, which is scheduled to be held at the Saitama Stadium in Japan next Saturday, corresponding to the sixth of May next year.
