World Cup Qualifiers - Bahrain Discussion.

We are coming close to some very crucial games against Japan and Iran. I thought it would be interesting to hear your views on our National team and our chances of making it to the World Cup!

Inshalla we beat them, they won by luck the last 2 times against us. Batelco is really supporting the team, 20,000 free megaphones and I think the federation will give out 25,000 free national team shirts.

The thing I really hate about the AFC is that they and it's soo clear this time, want Japan and South Korea to qualify, especially since their performances aren't as good as before. Just read the latest about their upcoming qualifying matches and you'll know.

Again, allah kareem and if we win and then get a point from Iran and beat N. Korea, Japan needs to draw one match (after Bahrain) and we're through. I assume Iran who only need 4 points and given their performance, will qualify directly.

Lucky u obi-wan i envy you!!

Man I think this is one of the strongest teams bahrain has ever had. Does anyone know if Alaa Hubail will be back? He isnt the best player, but he knows how to be in the right place at the right time!! and he had a brilliant season and ended up as one of the top scorers in the qatar league! ANyway with or without out top scorer I still believe we can make it inshAllah.

As for the Japan game well WE HAVE TO WIN IT. ..otherwise we can kiss the world cup goodbye!!!! I think our coach sidka said that we can only realisticly aim for the third place play off but I believe we can get an automatic qualifaction only IF WE BEAT JAPAN. And you know how demotivated our players can get!!!

Well as crucial as the Japan game is I think the game against Iran in the 100000 capacity Azadi stadium will be the hardest. The Iranian (fans and team) seem to hate Bahrain with a vengance after we elimanated them from 2002 world cup. Ive been reading Iranian forums around the net and they are so hooked on humiliating us for their revenge!!! Our boys are going to have a tough time out there in Azadi but anything is possible in football!!!!

Iranians hate all Arabs with a vengeance, generally, whether it was about football or not.

Ireland eliminated Iran from the last world cup qualifiers. I don't follow football but I remember that because I met the players at a mall in Dublin.

I recall the UAE was once up against South Korea and Japan. S. Korea already had guaranteed entry, but the competition was between Japan and the UAE. S. Korea lost against Japan on purpose to get them in, because they were both jointly hosting the World Cup that year, and FIFA badly wanted them to get in as well.

I don't know anything about football, but I know that So there you go.. you're doomed.

Well politics aside I think they hate us for supposedly "cheating" and "helping" the Saudis get in over them, despite Saudi being a competitor (just like iran) to Bahrain. The only reason Iran had to play Ireland was because they failed to gain the automatic asian qualification and had to result to the runner up play-off against another european runner up (Ireland).

The Iran-Bahrain game in the WCQ 2002 was the determinant for either Iran or Saudi to go through. Bahrain by this last game did not have a chance to qualify, but by beating Iran (3-1) we prevented them from getting the points they were expecting to beat the Saudis to the qualifiaction spot. However what further annoyed them was that one of our players had raised the Saudi flag at the end of the match. Many Iranian fans still accuse the match to be fixed and that our team had taken bribes from the Saudi's to motivate their defeat. Iranian fans blame Bahrain for shattering their world cup dreams four years ago and have ever since been seeking revenge.

But all these issues aside it was a great achievement for us and it was one of the games that signified the great improvement of the Bahraini football. Infact Bahrain came to win the FIFA 'most improved team' award later on that year.

Again, I reiterate, I have a bad feelin not for the game, but towards what's compin up from the AFC, they're up to somethin. Teams from east asia never get things laid out for them like the ones from the west, and we're talkin Japan and South Korea.

How can they say that the match fixed when we beat them not Saudi, they had the qualification in their hands and lost.
Anyways I hope that everyone who goes to watch the game live sings all the time even when we are loosing. Mata'3liboona!

Trust me man I am just as confused as you are....some of the Iranian football forums around the net have some pretty nasty messages against us! I could post some links here but I dont want to get us as angry as they are. I say we wait for the game and see what happenns then. Anyway as I said earlier this will be our toughest game becase they will be seeking to win this game more than anyother! Not to mention the 100 000 angry fans that we will have to face -very intimidating for the team, but I think we are used to playing infront of large numbers of away fans!

27/05/05 : BAHRAIN VS SAUDI (FRIENDLY MATCH)



خاض منتخبنا الوطني لكرة القدم مساء أمس تدريبه الأول على استاد الأمير فيصل بن فهد بالملز في الرياض استعدادا لمباراته الدولية الودية مع نظيره السعودي والتي ستقام في التاسعة من مساء غد على استاد الملك فهد الدولي في التجربة الأخيرة للمنتخبين قبل مباراتيهما أمام اليابان والكويت يوم 3 يونيو المقبل في الجولة الرابعة من التصفيات الآسيوية النهائية لكأس العالم

واشتمل التدريب الذي استمر ساعة ونصف ساعة على الاحماء وتطبيق تكتيكات دفاعية وهجومية وتسديد على المرمى من الجهات المختلفة ثم إجراء تقسيمة بين فريقين بمشاركة جميع اللاعبين العشرين الذين غادروا مع المنتخب إلى الرياض.
وسيجري منتخبنا مساء اليوم تدريبه الثاني والمقرر على أستاد الملك فهد الدولي الذي ستقام عليه المباراة إذ طلبت إدارة منتخبنا إقامة التدريب في وقت مبكر بحيث يبدأ في السادسة أو السابعة مساء بدلا من الموعد المحدد في التاسعة مساء الذي تحفظ عليه الجهاز الفني لمنتخبنا لكونه متأخرا ويمتد إلى الحادية عشرة ليلا وهو غير مناسب وخصوصا أنه يأتي عشية المباراة.
