Le Roy wary of Saudi Arabia challenge

Oman coach Claude Le Roy believes his side will face their most challenging game yet when they take on Saudi Arabia in the final of this year's 2009 Gulf Cup at Sultan Qaboos Complex stadium.

Oman are yet to concede a goal in their four matches on the way to the final but the Frenchman believes that Saudi Arabia, who have won the competition on three previous occasions, will prove to be tough opponents.

"Saudi Arabia are a very strong team and I know them very well," said Le Roy. "They have previously won the title three times and they have great history in the continent.

"However, Oman has previously qualified twice to the final of the competition and we will be hoping that we can win the title for the first time in the history of Omani football.

"We will have a lot of pressure as we are playing at home and in front of our fans. We know that it will be very tough atmosphere but we have talked to our players and asked them to give their all in the game."

Saudi Arabia fitness coach Luis Enara, who attended the press conference on behalf of coach Nasser Al Johar, said that the players are ready for the game and insisted they would not be phased by a vociferous home crowd.

"We have prepared very well for the match and we have also prepared for Oman and a possible encounter with them," he said.

"We don't pay much attention regarding the home fans as the players will be concentrating on the game. Each game is very important and there are different circumstances that we have to deal with. We will treat the next game in a certain way according to the capabilities of Oman.

"The game will be between two teams who deserve to be in the final and they are two strong teams.

"At the end of the day there will be only one winner and we must accept this fact."
