CAIRO – 25 March 2019: Al-Hilal Brazilian striker, Carlos Eduardo, participated at the team's training session on Monday and he is ready to play against Al-Nasr at Riyadh Derby on Friday at the Saudi Arabian League.
The player was sidelined since Al-Hilal 3-1 victory over Qatar’s Al-Duhail at Asian Champions League on March 12 and he missed the team’s 1-0 victory over Al-Ahli Jeddah at the semifinal of the Arab Club Championship as well as the team’s goalless draw against Ohod at the League.
Eduardo joined Al-Hilal in 2015 and since then he has established himself as one of the best players in the league. He was named the team captain in 2018.
“We will do everything to defeat Al-Nasr and stay at the top of the table. We created many chances against Ohod but we failed to score,” Al-Hilal goalkeeper, Ali al-Habsi, told press on Monday.
Al-Hilal are leading the Saudi Arabian League table with 57 points, two points ahead of the second placed, Al-Nasr.
