Two World Cup bound teams Saudi Arabia and USA will face each other in an international friendly at the Estadio Nueva Condomina in Spain on Tuesday. Both sides are heading into the match on the back of disappointing results this past weekend. The Green Falcons were held to a goalless draw by Ecuador, while USA suffered a 2-0 defeat to Japan. Saudi Arabia qualified for the global event in Qatar in two months time, courtesy of securing a top spot finish in their qualifying group, while the North AMerican outfit finished third in the CONCACAF qualifying table. 

Saudi Arabia are winless in their last three games, all of them were friendlies. The Greens’ last victory came against Australia in their final match of the World Cup qualifier on March 29 courtesy of Salem Al-Dawsari’s lone goal from the penalty spot in the 65th-minute. After that, Herve Renard’s side lost to Colombia and Venezuela with a 1-0 scoreline before playing out a 0-0 draw against Ecuador on Friday. The Saudi’s have failed to score in their last three outings, which is a cause of worry for the French tactician.

USA, on the other hand, suffered their first defeat in their last five games across all competitions on Friday. The North American outfit conceded two times against Japan at Merkur Spiel Arena. Diachi Kamara drew the first blood in the 24th-minute, before Kaoru Mitoma doubled the lead two minutes from time to seal the win for the Samurai Blue. Meanwhile, it was a poor performance from the Stars as they failed to register even a single shot on target compared to eight by Japan. Head coach Gregg Berhalter has just a few days to fix the problems  that plagued them against Japan.
