The Falcon’s training was led by manager Wesam Al-Sous and his assistant, Mohammad Hamdan.

Various players were previously incapable of attending training due to injuries but were given the green light by Hassan Barhoma, the team's physical therapist, to resume practices.

These included the naturalized player John Bohannon, who had a minor stretch of the abdominal muscle injury; Bohannon was absent in the match in Turkey as a precautionary procedure.  Hashem Abbas also recovered from a minor stretch in his hamstring muscle, and Yousef Abu Wazaneh recovered from a minor sprain in the ankle.

These practicies are held in preparation of the first stage of matches for the Group III of the Asian qualifiers for the 2023 World Cup.
