Al-Wehda manager Hatem Jaime nearly passes out in the heat
The conditions during Thursday night’s Saudi Champions Cup match between Al-Wehda and Al Ahli were so hot, home general manager Hatem Jaime almost passed out.
With under five minutes remaining in the match and with his team 2-down at the time, Hatem Jaime was forced to sit back and relax on the sidelines as fatigue and heat exhaustion threatened to leave the gaffer in a bad way.
One poor soul was employed to fan Jaime as he slumped in a chair looking worse for wear in a bizarre spectacle.
So if a local can’t stand the heat in these months…what is going to happen with Qatar 2022?
Brilliant free-kick from the master: Juninho Pernumbucano (Al Gharafa) v Al Sadd
There is very little left to say about the free-kick master Juninho Pernambucano who continues to score incredible set-pieces at the age of 36.
On Sunday, Juninho produced yet more jaw-dropping brilliance with a free-kick that bears a huge amount of similarity to probably his most famous goal ever and may have even surpassed it.
In a match against Al Sadd in the Qatar Stars League Juninho took a free-kick far out on the left touchline and curled in an unstoppable effort to make the score 3-0 midway through the second half in a game his side would win 3-1.
