the uae head coach mahdi ali has shortlisted 24 players for the european tour in preparation for the two tournaments in which he mainly relied on the members of the olympic national team which has qualified for the 2012 london games.

the 31-year-old was recently quoted as saying: “i would like to prove to the others i’m still capable of scoring goals and leading my club to the forefront of the competition.” but he did not elaborate.

however al wahda have advanced from the middle of the table to finish runners up to al ahli in the current season.

the uae lads start their internal gathering on may 14 and head for europe on may 20. but due respect will be given for the afc champions league fixtures. the whites are preparing for the gulf cup in ksa during november and the afc asian cup in australia 2015.

meanwhile 32 players have been nominated for the uae olympic national team will hold internal training camp from may 14 to 16 as part of their preparations for the asian games south korea september 19.
