Britain versus the United Arab Emirates means Richards v Sheikh Mansour – Manchester City’s Abu Dhabi-based owner.
And City defender Richards admitted: “He might not be too happy – I don’t know. We will try not to beat them by too much.
“I saw the UAE team against Uruguay on Thursday night, before our match against Senegal.
“In the first half they were the better team. They looked a good side.
“I have been to Abu Dhabi and the game has taken off over there.
“We’ve done a lot of stuff on the iPad and studied a lot of videos over the last two-and-a-half weeks – watching teams like Senegal and the UAE.
“When their players don’t play in our league, it’s hard to know what they are about.”
