Al Jazira Returns Victorious from Dubai

Dubai: 9 October 2013
Al Jazira kept loyal to his tradition this season, as the team managed, again, to come from behind and win their away match against Dubai in the 4th round of the Cup League at Wednesday 9-10, and they came back to Abu Dhabi victorious in spite of conceding an early goal, but the brilliance of the captain Ricardo Oliveira guaranteed the 3 points of the team.
Luis Milla was denied of the services of Ali Khaseif, Khamis Ismail, Ali Mabkhout and Abdelaziz Barrada for national duties, Nelson Valdez for injury, and Abdullah Qasim for suspension. So he decided to rely on Khalid Al Senani, Salim Ali, Jumaa Abdullah, Min Chin, Khalid Butti, Subait Khater, Yasir Matar, Yaqub Al Hosani, Sultan Barghash and Ricardo Oliveira.
Once again Al Jazira failed to maintain their focus in the first minutes of the match, and Bruno Cesar used a misunderstanding between Al Jazira defenders and scored his and his team first goal at the 3rd minute.
It took Al Jazira players 7 minutes to get back to the match, and starting from minute 10 to organize their attacking moves; Yaqub Al Hosani crossed the ball inside the area but the defender cleared it before Abdullah Musa reach it; Ricardo Oliveira tricked the keeper but Isam Dirwish blocked his shot.
And although the latter minutes were calm, the hard worker Oliveira was in the right time and place to receive Yasir Matar clever pass and struck the ball strongly inside the goal at minute 15.
The high pressure of Oliveira and his teammates gave them the second goal, Abdullah Musa forced the defender the pass the ball by mistake to Khalid Butti who prepared it for Oliveira and the Brazilian accepted the gift and put the ball in the top right corner of Dubai goal and gave his team t he second goal at minute 26.
The celebrations didn’t last long as Salim Ali passed the ball badly to Min Chin who failed to received it; Bruno Cesar got the ball and reached Al Jazira box and put the ball behind Al Senani to equalize the score after only one minute of Oliveira goal, and the first half ended with 2 goals for every team. 

Milla started the second half with the same players who ended the first one, but the injury suffered by Yaqub Al Hosani forced the Spanish to replace him with Hamid Al Mas, and during the first quiet minutes of the second half, Milla decided to pull Subait Khater out and give the chance to Sultan Al Suwaidi to come in at minute 63, as the coach wanted to shake things up in the midfield.
Oliveira insisted to play the savior role again and to confirm that he is the best of the best at that match, he broke the quietness of the match with a screamer from outside the area at minute 72, completing his hattrick, and scoring the third and the winner for Al Jazira.
The last 15 minutes saw an attacking rush by Dubai players, two yellow cards for Oliveira and Barghash, and 4 minutes as extra time. But the last result was 3-2 for Al Jazira who maintained their 4th place with 6 points from 3 matches, away with only one pint from the leader Bani Yas.
