Saudi Arabia got its place to the 2018 World Cup in Russia. They celebrated at home as hosts against Japan with a score of 1: 0, and with this victory, they finished second in the group B, which secured their direct placement among the best in Russia. Saudi Arabia have participated in the previous three World Cups, in 1994, 1998 and 2002. Their greatest achievement was reaching the last sixteen in 1994. Shock wins over Belgium and Morocco saw them reach the second round, where Sweden proved too strong and triumphed 3-1. Four years later they failed to advance from the group stage after being overpowered by Denmark and eventual winners France. Saudi Arabia qualified for their third successive World Cup finals in 2002. Saudi Arabia opened their tournament with an 8-0 loss at the hands of Germany, followed by more moderate defeats to Cameroon and Republic of Ireland.

The football team of Saudi Arabia is considered one of the most successful football teams from the Asian Confederation. Saudi Arabia won the Asian Cup in its history three times: 1984, 1988 and 1996, and four times so far in its history, entered the World Cup.

However, they attracted public attention with something unexpected, they drove out the selector who took them to World Cup. It's about the Dutchman Bert Van Marvik who drove Saudi Arabia to the Mondial, but he will not lead there, because he did not find a common language with the president of the Football Association Prince Ahmed Eid Al Harbie about the extension of the contract. Shortly after the match with Japan when the Saudis endorsed the World Cup, for the first time since 2006, the  Argentinian Edgardo Bauza was named as a head coach of the team. Their team is composed of players who play in the home championship. Except Mukhtar Ali who plays in Netherlands for football cluv Vitesse and Faris Abdi who plays in USA for Virginia Cavaliers. Captain of the team is  experienced Osama Hossawi who is playing in Al-Hilal in domestic championship.

Although they are one of the most successful teams in Asia, however, they are not expected to do something too much at this World Cup although in this beautiful game you never know.
