A first half own goal from Al Ama’ari Center defender Tawfiq Abduhammad was followed by Ahmed Ersan’s second half strike as the Jordanian side took the points at the Amman International Stadium on Friday.
Al Saed said his side would have sealed the match earlier had they converted their chances, something they must improve on in their upcoming matches.
“We could have sealed things in the first half but this is football at the end of the day,” said Al Saed.
“I was hoping the players would perform better, especially in the final third. We will try to fix those issues before the next match and hopefully we can be better,” added the Syrian tactician.
“Creating chances means that we can build attacks but what we want is concentration when dealing with such chances. We may not have a similar amount of chances in the next match and therefore, we must execute the chances well.
“Each match is special and we studied the strengths and weaknesses of all the teams. The next match is important for us and we should avoid dropping any points,” said Al Saed.
Al Ama’ari Center head coach Ihab Abujazar said lack of preparation and experience played a role in their defeat.
“We were hoping to do something in the match but we were affected by the lack of preparation before coming to Jordan, in addition to the lack of experience of the players,” said Abujazar.
“We knew before coming here that we would face difficulties but in football, everything is possible and we should be aiming to do better in the next match (against Kuwait SC).
“Many players were playing for the first time on natural turf and this was new for them. I believe that the performance we had today will give us confidence for the next match.”
