Led by legendary forward Majed Abdullah, the team had players such as Said al-Owairan, Sami al-Jaber, Fahad al-Bishi and record-breaking goalkeeper Mohamed al-Deayea. After losing their opening match to the Netherlands despite a solid display, Saudi Arabia started strongly against Morocco and sealed their first World Cup points with a 2-1 win. Their final game and chance to qualify for the round-of-16 came against Belgium, who were yet to concede a goal or lose a match in the 1994 tournament. Five minutes into the match, al-Owairan scored arguably the most famous goal in Saudi history. The attacking midfielder started his run from well within his own half and befuddled five Belgians on his way to the goal, where he coolly slotted past the goalkeeper to write his name into the history books. The Saudis held on for the next 85 minutes and made their way into the round-of-16.
The Green Falcons will aim to replicate their best finish and move into the knock-out rounds, as they did in 1994. And they will have plenty of support given they are playing so close to home and in a country they share a border with. After dominating regional football and winning the Asian Cup twice in the 1980s, Saudi Arabia finally qualified for their first World Cup in 1994 with an all-star team.

“The wickets have been a bit spicy, ” said Pakistan’s Shan Masood as he spoke to the press after the game. “We saw that (in the final) as well. “In these conditions, you realize how important it is to put your ego aside, consolidate, build platforms and finish well. “It’s probably a bit of old-style cricket, with the bigger boundaries and the quality of the bowling, batsmen were certainly humbled and a lot of people had to change their games. ” The conditions have contributed to a fantastically entertaining tournament. At one point, the poor weather in Melbourne had threatened to derail the competition, but aside from a handful of washouts, the damp conditions only served to contribute further to bowler-friendly conditions that gave the event a distinctive feel and led to many upsets taking place.
The Frenchman has mixed things up in the squad since taking over, and has introduced several fresh faces picked from the under-23 squad, with Firas al-Buraikan making his senior team debut at the age of 19. Al-Buraikan has already scored 11 goals and has now become a permanent fixture in the Saudi attack, with promising runs down the flank suiting coach Renard’s attack-from-the-wings gameplan in his preferred 4-3-2-1 formation. Captain Salman al-Faraj, meanwhile, is key to the Saudi midfield. From helping out in the attack with his accurate passing, to keeping the opponent’s attacks in check, al-Faraj will hope his leadership can bring results.
Runners-up Pakistan lost to Zimbabwe, South Africa fell to a crucial defeat at the hands of the Netherlands in a result that cost them a place in the semifinals, and Sri Lanka, who won the Asia Cup just two months ago, lost to Namibia in the first-round of the competition. The move to a 20-team World Cup in 2024, up from 16 teams in this year’s edition, will be a welcome change as cricket seeks to expand the global game.
Saudi Arabia relying on close-to-home support at World Cup
The Green Falcons underwent frequent coaching changes during the 2010s and failed to qualify for the 2010 and 2014 World Cups. They finally qualified for the 2018 tournament, and although they failed to progress, they earned a 2-1 win over neighbours Egypt. Saudi Arabia registered just one defeat in their World Cup qualifying campaign, finishing ahead of Japan and Australia in their group [Ahmed Yosri/Reuters] The current crop of Saudi players is relatively young, with an average age of just 23. French coach Herve Renard, who led Zambia and Ivory Coast to African Cup of Nations titles in 2012 and 2015 respectively, took charge of Saudi Arabia in 2019 and has overseen their qualification for this World Cup.
“It’s certainly made people adapt, ” summarised England’s captain Jos Buttler, who took over the role from Eoin Morgan earlier this year. “(It’s) made the batters have to think differently. Bowlers have been able to attack; at certain times the ball has swung throughout the tournament, which has added a different dimension.

“That will be one of the sort of themes throughout the tournament, and like you say, you play in different parts of the world and different challenges are faced. That’s why as an international team we have to be able to adapt really well to be successful. ” One of the upsets that took place was eventual champions England’s defeat to Ireland in the Super 12s stage of the competition, a result that effectively meant England had to go unbeaten for the remainder of the tournament to win their first World T20 title since 2010. It was something they managed in style as they strung together victories against New Zealand and Sri Lanka in their final two group stage games, before defeating India and then Pakistan in the semifinal and final. But their defeat to Ireland was far from the only upset to take place over the course of the four-week competition.
