Saudi Arabia

Mohamed Al-Owais 4 

Replaced Al-Maiouf after his torrid time in goal during the opening match and made a terrible error of judgement to hand Suarez the opener. May be investing in goalkeeping might be on the agenda over the next qualifying cycle.

Mohammed Al-Berik 5 

As he experienced against Russia, several attacks by the opposition were worked from his side of the pitch as he left significant space open by not retreating in attack. Ultimately, failed to impose himself defensively.

Osama Hawsawi 7.5 

Staunchly defended and displayed poise to clear balls into the box with precision to his midfielders.

Ali Al-Bulaihi 6.5 

Stood up well to the efforts of Uruguay’s star forwards, developing a formidable defensive partnership alongside the Captain Hawsawi.

Yasser Al-Shahrani 5 

Forced back on numerous occasions by the pressure put on him. His pace and marauding movement through midfield could have served his side better.
