Argentina vs Saudi Arabia Preview

Argentina enters the World Cup as one of the favorites, ranked No. 3 in the world. The Argentines open with Saudi Arabia in Group C action on Tuesday.

“When you dream about coaching football you dream about these kinds of games,” Saudi Arabia head coach Herve Renard told Esquire Middle East. “Of course, we know we are one of the lowest teams in this World Cup but I still know it won’t be easy to play against us — I’m sure of this.”

“The people in Saudi Arabia know football very well. They know we are not a team like Argentina, even Mexico or Poland. They are better than us. But in football, it doesn’t matter — you can make a difference with your psychological approach,” Renard added.

Making its 17th World Cup appearance in pursuit of a third title, Argentina provides quite the psychological and physical hurdle for Saudi Arabia. Argentina boasts one of the greatest players in the world with Lionel Messi, and the Argentines have talented players in Angel de Maria and Lautaro Martinez.

Amid big expectations, past failures haunt Argentina soccer. Argentina bowed out in the Round of 16 at the last World Cup after reaching the final in 2014. The Argentines won the Copa America in 2021 but fell short at third place in 2019 and runner-up in 2015 and 2016.

Argentina head coach Lionel Scaloni won’t want his team to rest on their laurels and physical skill, nor does he want them thinking about the big moments where they fell short.

“But the most important thing is the head,” Scaloni told The Guardian. “They’re all good players so if they’re in a good place mentally, if you can remove any fears; that’s important. We came from two Copa América finals lost, a World Cup final lost. The feeling was, ‘We’re never going to win anything’, ‘We won’t win, won’t win, won’t win’. We told them that win or lose, the sun rises.”

Saudi Arabia makes its fifth World Cup appearance, and the team won its qualifying tournament to advance. Ranked 51st in the world, Saudi Arabia has solid players in Fahad Al-Muwallad, Mohammed Al-Owais, and Salem Al-Dawsari.

“You always have to find a good balance in your squad because experienced players will help guide the young players, but also the young players will put pressure on the experienced players which is a good thing,” Renard told Esquire Middle East. “Our young players are fearless and I know they are excited to play in Qatar.”

Renard also noted that Saudi Arabia’s proximity to Qatar could help his squad.

“Team spirit, playing with a big heart for your country — these things can make all the difference. We are in the Middle East,” Renard told Esquire Middle East. “We’re a neighbor of Qatar and we’ll have a lot of support. We are ready.”
