The 2022 World Cup in Qatar is Saudi Arabia’s sixth participation in the event, the first being held in the United States in 1994. Since their debut, they have qualified for six of the eight World Cups, failing to qualify for the event in 2010 and 2014. Saudi Arabia’s most successful World Cup was their first to reach the quarterfinals before being eliminated by Sweden. They didn’t get past the group stage in the editions.

Saudi Arabia head coach Herve Renard is fully prepared for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and has unveiled his 26-man squad. Most of the squad comes from reigning Saudi Pro League champions Al-Halil, including team midfielder Salman Al-Fara, who sustained a shoulder injury in the friendly against Iceland but has since recovered. He will also lead the Arab team at the World Cup. Young Al-Halil defender Saud Abdulhamid was chosen for the squad along with fellow defender Hassan Al-Tambaakti. On the front lines, 22-year-old Firas Al-Buraikan will be present alongside veteran Salem Al-Dawsari.

Saudi Arabia was drawn into Group C along with Argentina, Mexico and Poland. Aware of the threat posed by the other teams in the group, Renard is up for the challenge. It’s certainly a difficult feat to get into the knockout rounds, which they haven’t been able to do since their first appearance. They will try to create excitement and pave their way to the next round.
