#25. Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Arabia national football team (Arabic: المنتخب العربي السعودي لكرة القدم‎) represents Saudi Arabia in international football. The team's colours are green, and white. Saudi Arabia are known as Al-Suqour (The Falcons), and Al-Akhdhar (The Green). Considered one of Asia's most successful national teams, Saudi Arabia have won the Asian Cup three times on (1984, 1988, and 1996) and qualified for the World Cup four consecutive times ever since debuting at the 1994 tournament. In the 1994 World Cup under the leadership of Jorge Solari and with talents like Saeed Al-Owairan and Sami Al-Jaber, reinforced by national veteran Majed Abdullah as team captain, Saudi Arabia beat both Belgium and Morocco in the group stage before falling to Sweden in the Round of 16. The team's continental success would fail to translate further to the international scenario, however, as Saudi Arabia was dismissed in the first round of the next three Cup tournaments, having failed to win any of their nine matches (with two draws - one in 1998 and another in 2006 - seven losses, four goals scored and 26 conceded). The team's relative lack of international notoriety is further compounded by laws that prevent players from playing for foreign clubs if they hold only Saudi citizenship, which is the case of a vast majority of the players.
