Argentina vs Saudi Arabia Match Preview and Team News
Things did not quite go according to plan four years ago for Argentina. They staggered rather than swaggered through their group after drawing with Iceland, losing to Croatia, and edging past Nigeria before going down by the odd goal in seven to eventual champions France in the last 16. Their early exit in Russia must be considered a blip, though, as this is a team who made the final in 2014, won the most recent Copa America, and was unbeaten through 17 matches of the grueling South American qualifying process for Qatar. Argentina made it to the decider eight years ago without sweeping teams aside. Every game was settled by a one-goal margin until the semi-final, where they beat the Netherlands on penalties. Angel Di Maria finally shows the qualities he possesses, he has excellent technique, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Lautaro Martinez is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
Saudi Arabia made the worst possible start to the World Cup last time out, going down 5-0 to Russia before giving a better account of themselves in a narrow defeat by Uruguay and a last-gasp win over Egypt. Their more recent record has seen further improvement. They won six and drew two in the second round of qualifying and only lost once in the third round to Japan, who followed them through. But in friendlies against South American opposition during the June international break, they lost 1-0 to Colombia and Venezuela, while September brought goalless stalemates versus Ecuador and USA. Saleh Al Shehri enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and goes toward the goal, the opponent has problems because he passes through the defense like a fast train. Mohamed Kanno found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
