Frenchman Hervé Renard, coach of the first Saudi national football team, replaced Sami Al-Naji, the midfielder, with striker Abdullah Al-Hamdan, in the Al-Akhdar list, which is participating in a preparatory camp in Jeddah, during the period from March 20-28, coinciding with the “FIFA” days.
And the account of the Saudi national team on Twitter, the social networking site, on Sunday, stated that the French coach had ruled out Al-Naji because of the injury.
Renard had announced his list, which is camped in Jeddah, last Wednesday, where it will play two test matches, at Prince Abdullah Al-Faisal Stadium, the first against Venezuela on March 24, and the second with Bolivia on the 28th of the same month.
And the previously announced Al-Akhdar list included: “Muhammad Al-Owais, Muhammad Al-Yami, Nawaf Al-Aqidi, Saud Abdul Hamid, Sultan Al-Ghanam, Miteb Al-Harbi, Zakaria Hawsawi, Abdul-Ilah Al-Omari, Ali Al-Bulayhi, Hassan Timbukti, Ahmed Sharahili, Riyad Sharahili, Muhammad Kno, Hussein Al-Qahtani, Abdullah Al-Khaibri, Nasser Al-Dosari, Sami Al-Naji, Salem Al-Dosari, Fahd Al-Rashidi, Abdul-Rahman Al-Aboud, Abdul-Rahman Gharib, Abdulaziz Al-Bishi, Haitham Asiri, Saleh Al-Shehri, Firas Al-Buraikan, Haroun Kamara.
The Jeddah camp is the first for Al-Akhdar after participating in the 2022 World Cup, which witnessed a historic victory over Argentina, who was later crowned the championship title.
