Yasser Al-Mishal, the head of the Saudi Arabia Football Federation, remarked that It was a successful training camp as the team returned to Riyadh for a well-deserved breather before plunging back into preparations for the World Cup.
Suppose the Green Falcons excel at the World Cup as they did on the group stage. In that case, we’ll quickly learn that the last couple of weeks in Abu Dhabi were essential in preparing a bid for a sixth World Cup berth. And hopefully, let us know your thoughts about the experience after the tournament.
At the basic level, these sorts of controversies only occurred after the arrival of major competitions. Such as the FIFA World Cup, such as Roy Keane refusing to join the Republic of Ireland’s pre2002 training camp. In Saudi Arabia, the national team played five games against international opponents during this period. These matches were handled hardly in the press.
While the score was 0-1 against North Macedonia, a 1-0 draw with Albania and a goalless deadlock against Honduras followed. It concluded with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Iceland, which ended in a 1-1 tie with Panama.
With two goalless draws against Ecuador and the United States in September, that unbeaten run has grown to cover seven games. Due to variations in teams’ strength worldwide, the goals conceded over those remaining games have typically been nil, with only two goals this month being conceded. This implies that coach Hervé Renard has successfully created an unbeaten run.
Few people were confident that Hassan Tambakti would make a strong impression in defense at the beginning of the match. Also, Ali Al-Bulaihi made up for his weaker effort with a strong contract.
Abdulelah Al-Amri also benefited from this challenge since he played soccer quite well. So his chances of stopping the MLS’s best player seemed to not be at risk. Who starts in defense will probably be uncertain, but there is no doubt that Mohammed Al-Owais will be the No. 1 goalkeeper.
Compared to the last month, we’ve been betrothed to an upswing in our desire to play the full game in FIFA.
Abdullah Ahmed has returned from injury to begin the second half against Panama, and Yasser Al-Shahrani also looks to be back to fitness. Saud Abdulhamid chose to deal no damage with a deflected goal and some energetic defensive actions toward Iceland.
Now those fears remain, but some doubt that Moroccan international captain Salman al Faraj will ever play again. He was last seen leaving the pitch before half-time against Iceland with shoulder pain notice.
It looks like a major issue, and he may be able to play against Croatia on Wednesday. But Renard must be worried that the skillful midfielder will have played three games in just a week.
We will be pleased when the World Cup starts since we have yet to reach full readiness. We must maintain our accomplishments over recent weeks and be more effective inside the area.
Saudi Arabia has had plenty of game time over the last few weeks. Now it’s just up to Renard and his team to show that their preparation period is going better than in other countries.
