These 2 teams have history and maybe even bad blood that go way back. They have faced each other in the past and the matches were very tight. In the 2008 summer season it was back and forth which resulted in a tie, but in 2009 in the CAGE, Yemen was unable to win after having a 1 nothing lead going into the halftime, final score was 2-1, ROOS. Last year’s match ended in a 0-0 tie. The weather will be sunny with high of 75 with a forecast of rain and thunderstorms early in the day. Weather conditions can play a big factor in today’s game with the grass being wet. Yemen also has a few more setbacks to overcome with injuries and work schedules for certain players, Yemen will have 18 active players for today and will be without their defensive player Sadami Mohsen due to knee injury and also last year top scorer for Elite Waheb Noman. We are hoping the home crowd will show up and support us and cheer us on and hope have a strong showing against a rabid ROOS team, who are determined to win and establish themselves as a top team in the Championship division. Yemen and ROOS sit 3 and 8 respectively in the division, so a win for either team will results in a catapult or a big drop within the division.
Kick off is at 6PM @ Yemen Soccer Field. Come show your support, bring your friends and family along for what should be a great game. (6/2/2013)
