Saudi Arabia coach calls for more after 6-0 win

Saudi Arabia coach Nasser Al Johar insisted there was still room for improvement following his side's 6-0 demolition of Yemen in their second Gulf Cup Group B match.

Malek Maaz scored twice, while first-half goals from Yasser Al Qahtani, Abdullah Shuhail, Ahmed Autef and Ahmed Al Mousa steered Saudi Arabia to a comfortable win as they moved level with UAE at the top of the group.

"Our players didn't show all their capabilities and there is still more to come," said Al Johar.

"We will see an improved performance in the next matches.

"We can go far in the competition and we will try our best to prepare very well for the World Cup qualifiers.

"The match against UAE is very important and we will go for a win to secure top spot in the group."

Yemen's Egyptian coach Mohsen Saleh said that his players cracked under the pressure of playing against an experienced side.

"Our players were under big pressure and the first-half performance was bad," he said.

"We were forced to make a lot of changes to the team from the first match due to injuries and this affected us.

"The new players don't have the necessary experience in the competition and this affected us badly in the match tonight and led to the six goals that we conceded."

Qatar coach Bruno Metsu, meanwhile, felt his side deserved the point they earned from their goalless draw with defending champions UAE, their second successive stalemate.

"The game was tough and we played against a well organised team," said the Frenchman, who used to coach the UAE.

"They tried to launch several attacks and that's why we tried not to go forward too much.

"We are the only team who haven't scored any goals in two matches and this is a serious problem for us," he added.

"If we want to qualify, we must score in the next match."

Metsu's compatriot and former assistant Dominique Bathenay believes the result gives UAE, who have four points from two games, an excellent chance to progress through the group stages.

"It was a good game and it has given us another point in the group," he said.

"The next game is very important and we will try our best to get a win. The draw tonight will give us a big push for the next match."
