The Arab teams participated in the 2022 World Cup, for a final international tour before the start of the football wedding, in which he revealed some defects and some positive points.
4 Arab teams will participate in the 2022 World Cup, and they are the host team, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and the national teams.
The results of the Arab teams ranged between a convincing Moroccan performance, a Qatari and Tunisian regression, and a Saudi persistence.
At the beginning of the Moroccan national team performed a wonderful performance against Chile, one of the largest of the South American continent, and managed to win 2-0 with a well-deserved score.
Especially with the return of the stars Hakim Dabbas and Nasir Mazraoui, who left the national team due to disagreements with former coach Halilhodzic.
The Moroccan team also drew negatively with the Paraguay team, which is stubborn defensively, which caused criticism of the offensive line, but praise came to the defense, who kept a clean sheet in two meetings.
The fortunes of the World Cup: Despite the strong performance of the Moroccan team, its group in the World Cup is complex, as it includes two European giants, ranked first Belgium, and World Cup runner-up Croatia, in addition to Canada
As for the Saudi national team, it is witnessing a great renaissance, under the leadership of French coach Herve Renard, who led them to the World Cup after leading the Asian qualifiers.
During the international break, the “green” presented a strong level in the face of Ecuador and the United States, two teams with great experience in the World Cup and with professional European names.
Saudi Arabia tied 0-0 twice, which carries a positive and a negative split at the same time, due to the absence of goals, but it certainly means “consistency” in the level.
The Saudi group fell into a very difficult group, which includes Argentina, Mexico and Poland, which are star-studded teams and have experience in the tournament.
The Tunisian team does not appear reassuringly before the World Cup, achieving a meager 1-0 victory over Comoros, and then a 1-5 defeat against Brazil.
Compared to the last African Nations Cup, and this week’s friendlies, the Tunisian team has not shown convincingly so far, hoping for an escalation of the level during the World Cup.
World Cup chances: Tunisia has to overcome one of the European giants, France or Denmark, in addition to Australia, to cross into the playoffs, a task that seems very difficult given the current performance.
Finally, the Qatari team was not convincing during the international period, and was defeated by Canada 0-2, then tied with Chile 2-2, in two meetings that showed the inexperience of “Al Annabi”.
Qatar will benefit from the factor of the land and the public, and the long preparation period, to appear strongly during the World Cup, and to repeat the great performance made by the team during the 2019 Asian Cup.
The fortunes of the World Cup: Qatar’s group is the most appropriate compared to other Arab teams, as it signed with the Netherlands, Senegal and Ecuador, which are teams that “Al Annabi” can snatch points from, which makes his chances of qualifying for the next round very possible.
