WAM

Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the UAE Football Association, hailed the efforts of the UAE National Football Team after undue criticism stormed social media.

Sheikh Rashid reiterated his confidence in the UAE National Football Team players, lauding their efforts during training camps and matches and their devotion and dedication to fulfilling the aspirations of Emirati football fans.

The Chairman denounced the criticism faced by the players, who have achieved successes for Emirati football, noting their losses in some matches are not an excuse for people to criticise them in a way that contradicts the values of the Emirati community.

He also called on the public to commit to constructive criticism and not discourage the players.

A committee is preparing all national sports teams to participate in competitions, noting that the UAEFA has established a strategy that considers many factors, including enhancing the image of teams.

In a statement, the association’s board said that it is “keen to support all national teams, most notably the first team.”
