The 2 teams of Group C, Argentina, and Saudi Arabia already Advance to the Knockout Stage.

About Saudi Arabia Football Team

According to Wikipedia, The Saudi Arabia national football team (Arabic: المنتخب العربي السعودي لكرة القدم) represents Saudi Arabia in men’s international football. They are known as Al-Suqour Al-Akhdhar (The Green Falcons) in reference to their traditional colors of green and white and represent both FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

Considered one of Asia’s most successful national teams, Saudi Arabia has won the AFC Asian Cup three times (1984, 1988, and 1996), reached a joint record six Asian Cup finals, and qualified for the FIFA World Cup on six occasions since debuting at the 1994 tournament. Saudi Arabia is the first Asian team to reach the final of a senior FIFA competition at the 1992 King Fahd Cup, which would eventually become the FIFA Confederations Cup. Only Australia and Japan managed to repeat this feat in 1997 and 2001 respectively, though Australia achieved it when they were a member of the OFC.

At the 1994 World Cup, under the leadership of Jorge Solari, Saudi Arabia beat both Belgium and Morocco in the group stage before falling to Sweden in the Round of 16. Thus, they became the second Arab team in history to reach the round of 16 of a World Cup after Morocco at the 1986 FIFA World Cup and one of the few Asian national football teams (others being Australia, Japan, South Korea and North Korea) to accomplish such a feat to date.
