Saudi Arabia National Football Team Squad 2022 World Cup

Saudi Arabia National Football Team Squad 2022 World Cup Saudi Arabia didn’t exactly have a problem getting through Group D of the second round of Asian qualifying, after skipping the first round.

They won six of eight games, drew twice and did not lose a single game. But it was a strange campaign from the start. They were then booted out of the first round and forced to play in a playoff against Bahrain, which they also lost.

In the second round, they finished first in Group B with seven wins from 10 matches and two draws. They came against Japan and managed to tie them at home.

This first place earned them automatic qualification for this winter tournament. They were drawn with Argentina, Mexico and Poland and they will be hoping to make it through the group stage with an eye on the knockout stages. Saudi Arabia is not expected by any means to go through this tournament but they may well be able to surprise some teams.
