Saudi Arabia Starting Lineup vs Mexico: World Cup Starting 11 Announced

Saudi Arabia is coming into this world cup after only one appearance in the previous three tournaments. The team was knocked out in the group stages in the 2018 World Cup. However, the team will have aspirations of once again reaching the Round of 16, a feat that Saudi Arabia has only achieved once, back in the 1994 World Cup hosted in the United States.

Saudi Arabia Starting 11 Vs. Mexico

  • Mohammed Al-Owais (GK)

    Saudi Arabia is one of the more interesting teams in this World Cup. Every single player from the team plays in the Saudi Pro League. This makes evaluating the squad extremely difficult; however, we have seen this team have success when it came to World Cup qualifications. One of the stand-out players from the qualifying rounds was Saleh Al-Shehri, who will likely be playing further forward in these games.

    The Saudi Arabia National Team is managed by Herve Renard, who topped a qualifying group that included Australia and Japan, two teams that are considered formidable threats in World soccer. However, the team is still projected to finish last, and many experts have Saudi Arabia losing all three matches.

    Saudia Arabia has played a 4-2-3-1 in the past, and that is what we currently project. This team will have an uphill battle fighting in the midfield against Argentina, Poland, and Mexico, but that will be the goal of manger Renard.
