Discussion in 'Saudi Arabia' started by al ittihady, Apr 3, 2022.
A fair draw I can say for the NT with only thing the defenders need to face Messi and Lewandoski.
Below is my early prediction of Team selection -
Fawaz Al Qarni
Sultan Al Ghannam
Muhammed Al Burayk
Saud Abdul Hamid
Abdellilah Al Malki ( If fit )
Sami Al Najei
Abdul Aziz Bishi
Abdul Rahman Aboud
Firas Al Buraikan
Should we say that Poland has to face Shehri, Argentina has to face Salem, and Mexico has to face Kano?
Don't know why I feel, Renard will start Firas Al Buraikan instead of Sehri.
Dear Saudi Arabia fans,
I have two questions. I greatly appreciate if you can answer them.
1. Out of last 5 World Cups KSA qualified (From WC 1998 to WC 2022), which one do you think was the hardest one to qualify? Which one was the easiest one in your opinion?
For Iran, 2014 was the hardest one and 2018 was the easiest one in my opinion. I do not recall games before 1997 due to my age. That is why I said from WC 1998 to WC 2022.
2. Who was better player out of Mohammed Noor and Taisir al-Jassam for you? Just curious.
Good luck in the WC 2022.
I hope it should not be true, but Saleh Sehri might be out of WC due to cut in his tendon.
The easiest was 2002 if not mistaken when we had South Korea, Uzbekistan and Kuwait in the group & qualified without much hiatus.
The hardest one was the Russian WC qualification IMO.
For me both the players have different quality, Noor was bit slow in his approach but was unstoppable when he was inform. He was not a natural goal scorer but used to be involved directly for many goals. Attitude was he was terrible.
Jassem was more direct & was very fast with scoring goals on occasions. Attitude was fine too & did not get himself involve in much controvorsies.
Final judgement for me would be Jassem if we combine both NT and Club appearances.
I hope it is not true as well and he can play in the WC.
The bolded one should be 2006. Anyway, thank you so much for the answers.
Then the gap will be filled by Hamdan or Kamara
KSA to play 3 friendly matches against Columbia, Ecuador and Venezuala in Spain.
Nov 16 friendly match vs CRO, in Riyadh.
Both Croatian and Saudi federations have confirmed this friendly.
Good Match scheduled by Saudi Arabia. This will help prepare for match against Argentina and Poland
I wonder if first-team Croatian players will get permission from their clubs to participate in that match.
The FIFA November window asks clubs to release players on Nov 14th, two days before this match.
Lost to Colombia. Today against Venezuela
and lost to Venezuela with same score
But better display up front. Missed some good chances. Hamdan's one th best after a mistake from a Venezuela defender. The team is better going forward with Salem. Faraj missed the game..
The FA president said after the game there are 6-7 more friendlies scheduled.
Don't know how it is going to help. We have an never ending league plus club players like Hilal have ramped up mammoth minutes playing this year..Fatigue will be a huge factor.
Renard has some work to do otherwise I won't be shocked to see changes in the dugout before the WC which usually is the case.
The centre forward position is a problem. In other words, Firas scored today for the U23 team after being in Spain with the senior team. Saudi to the semifinals
