    Yeah, the Bolivian NT team has already left for Riyadh, but the date of the game has been conflicting though, anyone know when the match will take place?

    There is also reports about friendlies with Nigeria, but have not heard anything new yet.

    Brazil to face Saudi Arabia, Argentina in October

    SAO PAULO — Brazil will go to Saudi Arabia to play the host nation and Argentina in October friendlies, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said on Thursday.

    The five-times World Cup winners will play the Saudis on Oct. 12 in Riyadh and then meet their South American neighbors north of Jeddah four days later.

    Tite's side are currently in the United States for friendlies against the home side in New Jersey on Friday and El Salvador in Maryland on Tuesday.

    Meanwhile, Nigeria will play Liberia in a friendly in Monrovia next week after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Seychelles, the team announced on Friday.

    The Super Eagles had originally been scheduled to play Saudi Arabia in a friendly but the fixture was canceled because of concerns about logistics.

    Some points noted from the friendly -

    1 - Fahd is being wasted in striker role..
    2 - We still need striker
    3 - Team too much concentrated around Salem Dawsari

    Omar Howsawi, and the other defender who replaced Omar Howsawi... BOTH ARE USELESS AND SHIT

    Just wait & watch how KSA NT will be deprived of players to fill in the key postions.
    The problem still exist in FA after so long years that they never plan succession for each player in particular postion. Osama Hawsawi is out & we don't have set replacement yet . Our CB's options have also dried up now.

    Coach is also making up excuses now, before was blaming the forward line for generating results & now he adds up the defence too..

    Sooner or later they will start naturalizing the players.

    They are still keen to play high profile friendlies without a proper assembled squad at disposal.

    Almost a year now, they could not find a striker or 2 to lead the team though they are plenty of options but under utlised or the players have lost confidence in them now..

    Abdullah Al Hafith (if he gets fit) is a replacement for Osama Howsawi.
    Islam Siraj is one potential striker who possesses all the traits to become another legendary player for Saudi (similar to Sami Al Jaber)
    Al-Jahfli is one of the defenders who can easily replace Omar Howsawi (who is not mentally strong and lacks creativity (creativity is divine gifted and cannot be developed).
    To make the matter worst, Saudi FA has allowed all the clubs to recruit and play with more foreign players which in essence will decline local (Saudi) talent from coming to highlight and develop. This decision should be reversed back to 3 foreign players maximum to be allowed to play in a match from one side and all remaining 8 players must be Saudi national on the field during any match.

    Someone from Saudi fans need to highlight above last point to Saudi FA to bring the Saudi talent back on track otherwise, be prepared for many humiliations in future matches where the goal margin would easily be minimum 4-0 or 5-0 even against the likes of Japan, Iran and Australia.

    Abdul Aziz Al Bishi (No. 20) was far better than Yahya Al Shehri in yesterday's match against Brazil

    KSA played decent .. Salem Dawsari can be a top class winger if he continues his for like this .

    The team needs a playmaker now who can pass the ball through the defences..I think they are missing Abed hugely now.. Does any one his injury status, I don't think Groin injury take times to heal !
