Jaber applauds cumulative work as Al Seeb close in on title
Muscat: Al Seeb Club’s historic progress to the AFC Cup™ 2022 final is a watershed moment, according to head coach Rasheed Jaber who paid tribute to his predecessors following the club’s 4-0 victory over Al Riffa in the West Zone final on Tuesday.
Jaber’s men became the first-ever Omani side to reach the final, and did so in style, putting Bahrain’s Al Riffa to the sword with an emphatic victory.
At a packed Seeb Sports Complex, the home side missed chances right, left and centre before they could finally open the scoring two minutes into the second half through Abdulaziz Al Muqbali’s tap-in.
When it rained, it poured for Al Seeb as substitutes Ahmed Al Siyabi and Cosmos Dauda got on the scoresheet either side of Salah Al Yahaei’s cool finish through the goalkeeper’s legs in what proved to be a one-sided second half.
