The Italian coach is looking for victory in his first match as coach of the Saudi national team, in order to gain the admiration and support of the fans.
Mancini wants to revive the Falcons after recent losses with former French coach Herve Renad, with whom the Greens were defeated by Venezuela and Bolivia in friendly matches.
Green Stars must compensate the fans for the last two losses through victory only and not just a draw.
The Saudi national team squad, according to the Italian coach’s choices, came as follows:
Defense line: Saud Abdul Hameed – Hassan Timbukti – Ali Al-Bulayhi – Yasser Al-Shahrani
Midline: Abdullah Al-Khaibri – Ali Hazazi – Muhammad Kno
Offensive line: Abdul Rahman Gharib – Firas Al-Buraikan – Salem Al-Dosari
