UAE has internal conflict ahead of World Cup 2022 qualifier matchday 4th

Coach Bert van Marwijk is under great pressure because of the defeat of the UAE against Thailand in the fourth round of the 2022 World Cup qualifying round in Asia (October 15).

The defeat to Thailand made the UAE lose the top position in Group G to this opponent, and was pushed down to 3rd place in the rankings. On November 14th, the West Asia team will have a difficult match against Vietnam at My Dinh Stadium.

Ahead of this highly anticipated trip, the UAE was showing signs of cloudiness when Mohammed Ali, a member of the UAE Football Federation, called for an emergency meeting to dissect the coach Bert van Marwijk's mistakes.

“It is necessary to organize a candid meeting with coach Bert van Marwijk before it is too late. The journey to win tickets to the 2022 World Cup is still long, but a meeting with the Dutch leader is needed to resolve the current problems of the UAE as soon as possible.

This is not an intervention of his expertise. Coach Marwijk needs to communicate frankly, receive suggestions and be responsible for the team's achievements in the past.

His mistake was not to call the best players to recruit. This is one of the reasons why the UAE lost to Thailand and lost the top spot in Group G, falling to third place.

A discussion should now be held with him to discuss the team's issues. The UAE still has the opportunity to win the top of Group G, thereby winning tickets to the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

To do this, we need to solve existing problems that lead to poor home team performance. That is the right thing to do right before the important match with Vietnam”, Mohammed Ali said in an interview.

The match against Vietnam is the last match of the UAE in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier in 2019. With 6 points won after 2 wins and 1 loss, the West Asian team is currently ranked 3rd in Group G with 1 point less than Thai Lan and Vietnam.
