For several years now, Saudi Arabia
has been one of the powerhouses of Asian football. On their FIFA World Cup debut in the USA in 1994, the Green Falcons caused quite a surprise when they beat Belgium and Morocco to qualify for the round of 16. They won against Belgium thanks to a goal by Saeed Al-Owairan, which to this day is one of the most memorable moments in World Cup history. However, after four qualifications in a row between 1994 and 2006, Saudi Arabia
failed to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
