TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Esteghlal football team head coach Winfried Schaefer is optimistic about the team’s match against Al Duhail of Qatar.
The Iranian team will face Al Duhail in Doha in Group C of the AFC Champions League on Tuesday.
“First, I want to congratulate the Qataris over winning the title of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. I follow Qatar football for 10 years. They had some mistakes in the past but have worked very well on their talented players,” the German coach said.
“We have a good feeling about the match against Al Duhail and have a good chance to get result in this match. Godwin Mensha scored a goal against Al Duhail when he was playing for Persepolis last season and I hope he can repeat his performance,” Schaefer added.
“Esteghlal played a good match against Al Sadd in the previous season but we had lost the first leg in our home and were forced to say goodbye to the competition. We have a new team in this season and I think we could beat Al Duhail,” the Esteghlal coach concluded.
