Egypt international Ahmed Hamoudi repeatedly praised his teammates for their performances in Al Batin’s 1-1 draw with Al-Qadisiyah.

Hamoudi scored his side’s only goal as they shared the spoils with Al-Qadisiyah in the sixth round of the Saudi Professional League on Friday.

“Thank God, today, we were playing for the three points from the beginning. The players today did what they had to do; no one held back,” the former Smouha playmaker said.

The newly-promoted side currently sit eighth in the league table on eight points after earning two draws and two victories from six games.

“The players were great, and the manager prepared us well in the past week. The players didn’t hold back. I will tell them, God willing, next game we will continue on. We are on a good run lately, and God willing, the run will get bigger and bigger,” he added.

Speaking on the goal he scored, the former FC Basel player said, “the players today didn’t hold back from the beginning. They all did everything they could. God willing, they will score next game.”

This marked Hamoudi’s first goal with Al-Batin. The former Zamalek player however had assisted three goals in his first two games against Al-Taawoun and Al-Raed.

He concluded, “the manager always tells me to link up with my teammates. I wasn’t able to do that well today, so God willing, we can do something good next game.”

Hamoudi will play against his compatriot Mahmoud Abdel-Moneim Kahraba when his side host Al-Ittihad on Monday in the quarter-final of the Saudi Crown Prince Cup. Al-Batin will then face Al-Wehda in the seventh round of the league on October 29.
