On the sidelines of the match was held a press conference where the coach of the people Ali Obeidi that the victory of his team came as a result of the performance of the players appeared throughout the game.

He stressed that despite the short preparation period, the players overcame the odds and managed to turn the result from a loss to a goal to win with two goals.

 Al-Yarmouk coach Dr. Fouad Al-Oudi attributed the loss to a short period of preparation which caused the team to perform physically during the course of the shooting.

"Most of the players in the team, especially the experienced, did not reach the required readiness and therefore did not provide the required performance," he said adding "We await their arrival to the optimum readiness in the rest of the tournament stages."
