The Syrian national team ended the training of domestic players on September 2. The Syrian team originally planned to go to the UAE for training on October International Match Day. The Tunisian coach Maruller of the Syrian team is very satisfied with the domestic training camp and hopes that the training camp in the UAE can receive better results. Syria’s training camp in the UAE will recruit all international players who have played in overseas leagues, including strikers Shuangsha Khribin and Soma, which are familiar to Chinese fans, and midfielders Mavas and Omari, who play in the Qatar League, to play in Kuwait. The defender Salih Shami, playing in Egypt, Midani, is considered an elite gathering.
Maruller is already very familiar with the Syrian domestic league internationals, because Syria's domestic training camp started on August 3 and lasted almost 4 weeks. Although many players were infected with the new crown pneumonia during the period and were forced to suspend, the training camp was finally completed successfully. During the training camp of the UAE, the Syrian national team originally planned to warm up with the Kuwait national team. This was the first A-level warm-up match after the new coach Marul took office. Of course he attached great importance to it. Syrian Football Association Secretary-General Said said that the Syrian national team’s training camp in the UAE lasts for 9 days. From October 5th to 13th, the game against the Kuwait national team is scheduled to be held in Dubai. The game time is on the 12th.
However, on September 30, the Kuwait Football Association was forced to cancel the UAE training camp at the same time as Syria. The reason was that the Kuwaiti Ministry of Health required the nationals to accept a 14-day quarantine period after returning from the UAE training camp. Choose to train in the country and play 3 warm-up matches with local clubs. The Syrian Football Association will still maintain the original UAE training plan, but will look for a warm-up opponent. The UAE League will be unveiled on October 16, and there is no shortage of warm-up opponents. It is just that coach Marul’s A-level debut for the Syrian national team will be postponed due to the epidemic.
The Philippine Football Association has just renewed its contract with coach Cooper until 2026 at the end of September. Cooper also emphasized that despite the impact of the epidemic, the preparations for the Philippine national team are still proceeding as planned. However, the Southeast Asia Cup of Nations that was originally scheduled to be held in November has just been postponed to April next year. Cooper believes that this still has a positive impact on the preparation of the Philippine national team. At present, the Philippine national team has no further training plans. Cooper's energy is mainly on finding new international players, including forwards Gajoso, M Diano and L. Ocampo, who played in the local league. The naturalization process of the Philippines It also continues.
At present, the 25-year-old Bochum striker Holtman and the 31-year-old Jena midfielder Obermeier have both submitted naturalization applications. Both have Filipino descent, and the Philippine Football Association hopes to be naturalized within this year, adding strength to the top 40 in March next year.
The Philippine Football League, which was originally scheduled to open on March 21, is currently scheduled to start on October 15, but it was postponed three times due to the impact of the epidemic. It was just determined that the clubs could train in August, and they were forced to re-isolate due to the second outbreak of the epidemic. Continue to postpone. The single round-robin system for the 6 teams was finally determined. The new season will not start until mid-October, and the national team training is even more distant. Cooper is very helpless about this. He hopes that the national team can resume training before the end of the year while waiting for the latest announcement from the AFC on the schedule and venues of the remaining games of the top 40. Before that, the Philippine Football Association can only wait.
