Dynamo Bucharest vs UAE

The UAE has registered a draw in their second preparation match during their camp in Austria.

Srecko Katanec’s team settled for a 1-1 draw against Romanian powerhouse Dynamo Bucharest at the Zalamsy Stadium in Cabron.

The UAE took the lead in the first half, but conceded the equaliser in the second half.

Katanec and his team are expecting tough matches against the Indian team in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and they hope to find the right form during their camp in Europe.

“Our home and away clashes against India in the second stage of the World Cup qualifier need to be very strong. We are looking forward to advance to the group stage of the qualifier,” midfielder Mahmoud Khamis told the official website of the UAE FA.

“The Indian national team is making ground. It’s a progressive kind of teams,” Khamis added.
