Remember the time

New England's manager Roy Hodgson had an Asian stint when he were UAE National Team's head coach. He ran few training sessions but he impressed everybody with his attention to detail and enthusiasm. The new England manager was in charge of the UAE from April 2002 until January 2004 when he led the team through qualification to the 2004 Asian Cup in China but finishing just fifth out of eight teams in the Gulf Cup. His team included players such as Al Ain's Salem and Ali Al Wahaibi, Al Jazira's Subait Khater and Al Wahda's Ismail Matar. He brought on an enormous knowledge on the game and tried to build a squad based on youth. But Hodgson work was hard with no training camps and players not available. He ended his tenure with a 50-50 win ratio.
