The Saudi national team has officially booked the qualification card for the Qatar World Cup 2022 for the second time in a row and the sixth in the history of the Saudi green, after Japan defeated Australia with two goals without a response at its stadium and among its fans, to give Al-Akhdar the opportunity to ascend to the World Cup without looking at the China match scheduled for this evening next to the Australia match. In the last round.
It is possible that the Qatar World Cup will witness the largest Arab presence in the World Cup in history, as the last edition, which was held in Russia, witnessed the presence of five Arab teams: (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco).

In the event that any of the three Arab teams wins the play-off against Australia, there will be a confrontation against the fifth-placed team from South America in order to snatch the World Cup qualification ticket.
