Saudi Arabia: Salem Al-Dawsari (Al-Hilal)
Group C opponents: Argentina, Mexico, Poland
Though Saudi Arabia scored only 12 goals through 10 World Cup qualifying matches, there is some attacking talent within the roster. Of course, we’re primarily speaking about 30-year-old winger Salem Al-Dawsari. During the qualification process (the span of three years), Al-Dawsari led Saudi Arabia in goals (7). He’s also been designated as the team’s official penalty taker. A tricky yet clever player on the ball, he primarily prowls the left wing for The Green Falcons. Though he has played virtually his entire career domestically, Al-Dawsari did have a short spell at Villarreal in La Liga (thus showing he is a dynamic player).
