The number of foreign professionals in the Saudi Roshen League participating with their teams during the 2022 World Cup increased to nine, after the teams of Morocco, South Korea, Poland, Cameroon and Tunisia revealed their final strengths, before the World Cup.
Costa Rican Oscar Duarte, defender of Al-Wehda team, guaranteed his appearance in the World Cup a few days ago after being selected to his country’s national team list, before he was joined by eight other players, led by Moroccan Abdel-Razzak Hamdallah, Al-Ittihad striker, and his compatriot Munir Al-Mohammadi, Al-Wehda goalkeeper.
The Cameroonian national team is the most attractive to the players of the Saudi Professional League compared to the rest of the teams, as its final list included three players, namely: Vincent Abu Bakr, the Al-Nasr striker, Collins Fay, the right-back of Al-Taei, and Davis Ibasi, the goalkeeper of Al-Taie.
In addition to Moroccan Munir and Cameroonian Ibasi, the goalkeepers of Al-Wahda and Abha, there is a third goalkeeper in the Saudi Roshen League who will protect his country’s den during the World Cup, and he is South Korean Kim Seong-gyu, the goalkeeper of the youth team.
At the level of the European teams, Czeslaw Mishniewicz, Poland’s national team coach, summoned Gregor Krzychowiak, the youth midfielder, to the national team’s list that will compete in the World Cup in Group C, which includes the Saudi national team.
