Omar Hawsawi returned to the Saudi Arabia squad in the closing stages of the second round of Asian Zone qualifiers, winning a starting berth thanks to his powerful physique and defensive solidity. He first demonstrated his talent with club side Al Nasr, before going on to represent the Green Falcons at the 2015 AFC Asian Cup – with his sights now set on the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.

In addition to his defensive qualities, Hawsawi is an asset at the other end of the pitch from set-pieces. He found the net away to Japan in Saitama in qualifying and could well feature among Saudi Arabia's scorers in Russia.
