The Saudi national team is hosting its counterpart, the Costa Rica national team, in order to get to know the level of Al-Akhdar and its players after the Italian Roberto Mancini took over the leadership.
The Falcons are seeking to achieve victory, having missed the last 4 matches, two in the Arab Cup and two friendly matches.
The Saudi national team failed to outperform Venezuela and Bolivia during the pause period last March, losing by two goals to one in each match.
Mancini wants to prepare the Greens for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers next November, as he has two months to make his mark.
The date of the Saudi national team’s match today against Costa Rica comes at 11:00 Abu Dhabi time, 10:00 pm Mecca time, 10:00 Cairo time, “SSC 1” via Saudi Sports.
