Al Nasr defender Mahmoud Khamis expects a tough game against Shabab Al Ahli in the Arabian Gulf Cup final scheduled to be held at Sharjah Stadium on Friday evening.
“We will do our best and fight for the title. We are up against a strong team and we are expecting a balanced matchup against Shabab Al Ahli,” the 33-year-old said.
"It's the small details that make all the difference," Khamis said ahead of the match which will see Al Nasr eye their third Arabian Gulf Cup title overall and the second in a row.
"It is more difficult to stay on top than to get there and we are ready to retain the title,” he added.
The pre-match press conference was held on Wednesday at Etihad Museum in Dubai as part of the UAE Pro League's Year of the 50th Cup Final initiative.
