“The cooling technology used in the game was very impressive. In most AFC (Asian Football Confederation) countries, top-level football matches are played during the warm months of the year, so the use of cooling technology will help AFC players to raise their standards on the pitch.”

“The training facilities in the stadium are very advanced and the pitch is of good quality. The design of the redeveloped stadium is very nice and it was exciting to play an important World Cup qualifier. I look forward to coming back again when the stadium is filled to capacity,” he told Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy.
