While preparing for the third consecutive victory, Herve Leonard We’ve seen a trio of poor performances from his players.

On Friday, the Ecuadorian held off his team. Green had only two shots on target and has not scored a win since beating Australia 1–0 in the final qualifying round in March.

Saudi Arabia scored 34 goals during the 2022 qualifying campaign. This was the fewest of the six Asian nations to qualify in Qatar, excluding the World Cup host nation, which did not qualify for the third round of qualifying.

The poor quality of their attacking thirds continues to haunt Saudi Arabia, who have gone scoreless in three consecutive matches against South American opponents (Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador).

They may have struggled to score, but Saudi Arabia have maintained their defense, conceding goals or less in 11 of their last 12 games in all competitions.

Tuesday was Green’s fourth consecutive game at home to third-division Spanish side Real Murcia, who have been struggling with two defeats in their last three matches on the field. increase.

Their form at the moment may be worrisome, but these players are among the 26-man rosters heading to Qatar as it is the first of six international matches scheduled for Qatar. There will be many more opportunities to convince Leonard that he is worthy of being killed. Saudi Arabia before facing Argentina in the World Cup opener on 22 November.

More than three months long layoffs from international football seemed to have affected the Americans on Friday as the Samurai Blue scored a relatively comfortable victory.

The United States failed to record a shot on target in Düsseldorf, but conceded eight as they appeared to be ahead of Japan tactically and technically.

Possessing 58% possession at the end of the match, the United States played poorly in the half of the field in the opening 45 minutes, stealing the ball multiple times and giving Japan many chances to score. .

Greg Burhalter His team had only a few days to work out the problems that plagued them against Japan.

The match against Saudi Arabia will be the last chance to evaluate his side in a competitive international encounter before kicking off their World Cup campaign against Wales on 21 November.

For a team of high quality individuals, it is a concern to see how this team struggles with creativity and quality in front of goal.

As the World Cup campaign continues to question who will be number 9, the USA have scored one goal or less in three of their last four games.

It was the Yanks’ first loss to an Asian opponent on Friday since losing 0-1 in a friendly against South Korea in 2001.
