Osama Hawsawi is among the most experienced players in the Saudi Arabia squad, having participated in the last three editions of the AFC Asian Cup. Captain and chief organiser of the defence, he featured in every qualifier for Russia 2018 when available, missing just one game through suspension.

Hawsawi offers reassurance at the back and will doubtless need to provide it when Saudi Arabia face some of world football's most dangerous forwards this summer. The veteran prefers to mark his opponents tightly, preventing them from moving freely in his team's area.
