Wahda goalkeeper hurt, may not face Al Ain

Our colleague Amith Passela reports ...

An injury to Adel al Hosani, the Al Wahda goalkeeper, has left the Pro League champions Al Wahda in a bit of a spot ahead of their interesting home clash with Al Ain on Saturday.

Al Hosani, who received a call-up for last month's friendly against Kuwait by the national team coach Srecko Katanec as a replacement for Yousuf Abdulrahman, the Al Ain stopper, who was injured in a car crash, will have to pass a fitness test before the game.

"He was hurt in the Jazira match after receiving a sliding tackle," said Tite, the Wahda coach. "He continued to play but the injury seems to have aggravated. We are still hopeful but all will depend on what the medical team will have to say."
