FIFA WC SAUDI ARABIA TEAM: A team making its 6th appearance in the World Cup, Saudi Arabia will want to put their best foot forward, especially with the World Cup being played in the Middle East. They have qualified in 6 out of the last 8 World Cups, but they missed out in 2010 and 2014, making a comeback in Russia, but sadly, could not make it out of the group stage. Their group this time is quite a tough nut to crack and it will be interesting to see how they navigate the same.

FIFA WC SAUDI ARABIA SQUAD: Herve Renard, the French coach of the Saudi Arabian team has started putting together a group of players that have started playing cohesively under his leadership. A coach who has won the 2012 and 2015 AFCON Cups with 2 different teams knows how to handle pressure and expectations on such a big stage and the Frenchman will be looking to use that experience to navigate their journey in Qatar. 

Saudi Arabia was in top form in their World Cup Qualifying campaign as they went unbeaten in their group, winning 7 out of 10 games. Salem Al-Dawsari and Saleh Al-Shehri, both scored 7 goals each and they will be vital to Saudi’s success in Qatar.

SAUDI ARABIA TEAM NEWS: Even though Saudi Arabia has been quite consistent under Renard, they do not have a mega-star in their squad and it all boils down to teamwork for them. As mentioned above, Salem Al-Dawsari and Saleh Al-Shehri will be players who can make a difference to them with their goals.

At the back, Abulelah Al-Amri too is a center-back who has risen the ranks, even though he just has 15 caps to his name. Their left-back, Yasser Al-Sharani also is a household name for Saudis and he will be instrumental for them in attack and defense.

SAUDI ARABIA Team INJURY LIST: The Saudis do not have any big or key injuries that will see their players miss the tournament.

FIFA WC SAUDI ARABIA GROUP NEWS: Group C will be contested between Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Poland. It won’t be easy for the Saudis to make a dent here as it looks like a competitive group but they can cause an upset.

FIFA WC SAUDI ARABIA Matches & Schedule: Saudi Arabia will play the favorites Argentina on the 22nd of November to kick-start things for them in Group C. Then, they face off against Poland on the 27th of the month, and end their group stage with Mexico on the 1st of December.
