The details for one of the Cosmos' three preseason friendlies in Dubai have emerged, as Al Shabab have confirmed that they'll be taking on the American club in a friendly this week. The game is scheduled for Thursday, March 6, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. EST.
Al Shabab have been one of the traditional powers of the SPL, finishing third last season after winning the title during the 2011/12 season. They've reached at least the knockout round of the AFC Champions League in four of the last five seasons, and have opened their 2014 campaign with a win in their first group stage game. They also finished as runner up in the Saudi Champions Cup last season, a competition the club won in both 2008 and 2009.
There is no news yet on whether or not this friendly will be streamed, or whether we'll be left following the club's twitter feed for updates on the action.
