(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The #Oman football team will play friendly home matches against #CostaRica and #Uruguay in October as part of its preparations for the 22nd Gulf Cup which will be played in Riyadh #SaudiArabia from November 13-26.

Oman faces #CostaRica at the Sultan Qaboos #Sports Complex (SQSC) in Muscat on October 10 in the first of two friendlies scheduled by the #Oman Football Association (OFA) on FIFA-sanctioned matchdays.

It will be followed by the #Uruguay match to be played on October 13 at the same venue. Both #CostaRica and #Uruguay produced impressive performances at the 2014 World Cup in #Brazil progressing to the knockouts from their group at the expense of England and Italy.

Uruguay is ranked sixth in he world while #CostaRica is 15th. #CostaRica turned out to be the biggest surprise package in #Brazil making it to the quarterfinal stage where it lost to The #Netherlands on penalties. Meanwhile #Oman will play an away friendly against #Ireland in Dublin on September 3.

Oman faces a tough draw in the Gulf Cup. It plays defending champion UAE #Iraq and #Kuwait in Group B. #Oman coach Paul Le Guen said 'It will be a very exciting time for our players. We are preparing hard to do well at the Gulf Cup and also trying to be ready for the 2015 Asia Cup [to be played in #Australia in January]. To play teams of this standard will be a real test of how far we have developed. We look forward to all the Omani fans getting behind the team.'
