Today, in the second test match in Dubai, we drew 1:1 against the local team "Dubai United". Pedro scored the only goal for our team. At 16:00 UAE time we will play against the U23 national team of Uzbekistan.
We have been in Dubai since January 12. The team practices twice a day every day and has two games scheduled today. In the first game, we met with the United Arab Emirates team "Dubai United".
In the first half of the game, we played more with the ball and deservedly scored a goal. In the 13th minute, Lukas Rangel played strongly individually, against him opponents made a foul in the penalty area, and the penalty kick was scored by Pedro (1:0). The opponents also had several interesting players. There were no more goals scored in the first half - 0:0.
In the second half, head coach Tomislav Stipić made several substitutions. A couple of players who are on trial at the club also went on the field, but not all of them managed to show their best performance. We missed several good scoring opportunities. In the last minutes of the game, we made a mistake in the middle of the pitch and "Dubai United" then created a good attack - 1:1.
Already at 16:00 UAE time we will play against the U23 national team of Uzbekistan.
