Hernán Darío Gómez will have this Friday October 12 (10:30) his third test at the head of the Ecuadorian national team. Its rival and the venue of the match will be Qatar, the country where the next World Cup will be played, in 2022.
The match will be played at the Jassim Bin Hamad stadium, which is acclimatized so that the temperature on the court is 21 degrees. Outside the environment is expected to reach 36 degrees.
The climate of Qatar has been one of the most controversial issues in recent years. Even FIFA and the Organizing Committee decided that the 2022 World Cup will be played from November to December, the months when the temperature drops.
Traditionally, the World Cups have been held mid-year, in June and July. In addition, the contest will only last 28 days, unlike the usual 32. The “Bolillo” Gómez made two practices in Qatari territory and this Thursday, October 11, he planned the match with the players, in a pleasant technical talk, which began with a motivational dialogue.
After the meeting, Gómez screened a video about the game of Qatar. Before the trip, the Colombian coach explained that although he had the videos of the rival’s games, he was not going to share them before, since he wanted to focus on the preparation of his team.
The team had planned to make a first and only visit to the stadium where the match will be played on the night of this Thursday, October 11. In the scenario they will only make slight movements with the ball in the main court.
As confirmed by the press team of the Ecuadorian Football Federation, which is in Qatar, the “Tri” will play in blue uniform. While the attire of the locals will be all color wine. (I)
