Saudi Arabia Prediction and Expectations on World Cup 2018

Saudi Arabia probably wouldn't have a chance to reach Round of 16, but they are here and will do their best. They are absolute underdogs and all players know that. They can't play against Uruguay, but will try to pick up some points against Russia and Egypt. Their two coaches fired in the preparation for the World Cup and if they succeed to pick up big one point in Group A it will be a big success for them.
