Bahrain Had Best Performance against Iran , Coach Says
According To Iran News, Bahrain coach Helio Sousa says that his team had its best performance against Iran in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Asian Qualifiers.
Bahrain defeated Iran 1-0 at the Asian qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and the victory moved it up to second place in Group C behind front-runner Iraq.
“We’ve improved the players’ defensive performances and they’ve shown themselves to be very responsive to our methods. They implemented what we asked them to do, particularly against Iran, when we had our best performance of the qualifiers,” Sousa said.
Bahrain’s three remaining Group C games are against Cambodia, Iran and Hong Kong.
“There are nine points up for grabs and we’ll do whatever it takes to try and get all nine. Everyone in the squad has assumed their share of responsibility, and they work hard for the national team,” the 50-year-old explained.
“We’re experiencing something unique right now but we must think about the next stage. It’s a great time for me and my team,” the Portuguese added.
“The players were great despite all the circumstances we went through because they are semi-professional.
“We’ve managed to achieve a lot in recent months but we’re still looking for more. We’ve worked very hard to make Bahrain competitive in all tournaments,” Sousa concluded.
