Tonight, Oman FC take on the Democratic Republic of Congo at the Sultan Qaboos stadium in Bowsher / Ghubra - whatever they call that area. The game kicks off at 6:30pm, so I imagine you should expect lots of traffic this afternoon, and later on tonight, around the stadium.
Muscat Daily's Divesh Bhal reports today that Paul Le Guen (Oman's head coach) has had to field a weakened side against Congo as a first choice Striker (Hassan Rabee'a) and Defender (Mohammed al Musalmi) have both been ruled out due to injuries. So perhaps there will be lots of disappointed fans tonight, I hope al Plod will be prepared for any disgruntled fans should the local lads be defeated. Best of luck to them though!
In similar news, Arsenal have handed a trial to Oman international Saad al-Mukhaini. The 24-year-old left-back, who plays for Omani top-flight side Fanja SC and has earned 23 caps for his country since making his debut in 2009, is expected to arrive in North London later this week ahead of a two-day trial.
