The Iraqi team, one of the Arab representatives in the second group, suffers from great difficulties in this edition of the World Cup qualifiers. Despite snatching a valuable point from the Korean Samson land, it lost three days later, with a clean three, against its Iranian counterpart, and on the supposed land of Iraq (Qatar).

This loss contributed to a great wave of anger among the Iraqi masses due to the mediocre results that began since the start of the second stage of the preliminary qualifiers, which Iraq also ended by losing to the Iranian team, which overthrew the Slovenian coach Streshko Katanic, and the task was entrusted to him after him by the Dutchman, Dick Advocaat, and the latter did not help him. His long experience in making a change in the performance of the Iraqi national team, although the Iraqi media does not bear the issue of the severe loss against Iran, because he did not complete one month, when he took over the reins of affairs in the leadership of the “Lions of Mesopotamia”.

The Iraqi team is trying to return strongly to the competition, when it hosts the Lebanese team in the match that will be hosted by the Khalifa International Stadium, despite occupying the last place in its group, with one point, with a series of numerous injuries that hit the team, most notably the absence of its striker Muhannad Ali (Mimi). He has only to win, in order to revive his participation with three points, his graduation from the bottom of the first group, before meeting the Emirates in the fourth round.

As for the Lebanon team, it enters the match to move away from the bottom of the standings, and it refuses to be classified as the weakest team in the group. A good match in which they embarrassed the most Asian teams reaching the World Cup.

The Lebanese team wants to confirm its ability to compete in this group when it faces the Iraqi team, and despite realizing the importance of the match, especially that Iraq is looking for a lifeline by collecting the three points, the Cedar men will try to draw at least, pending the rest of the upcoming confrontations, which may The group balances fluctuate, and all expectations are violated.

The Syrian team is similar to its Iraqi counterpart in several aspects in the current qualifiers, as it also plays on its land by default (Jordan) due to the ban imposed on Syrian stadiums, and it has one point in its balance from its draw in the previous round with the UAE team, and before that the loss outside its home against the Iranian team.

Despite the orphan point of Nassour Qasioun, who will suffer from the absence of the duo, Mohamed Othman, professional in the Netherlands, and Ayaz Othman, professional in Greece, due to an administrative error, the difficult draw that landed him in his first three confrontations against the teams of Iran, the UAE and South Korea, brought with it good news, The sons of Nizar Mahrous, after the South Korea match in Seoul, will end early their most difficult away confrontation after meeting the Iranian national team in Tehran.

For its part, the UAE team receives its Iranian counterpart in the strongest matches of the first group, and the UAE is looking for a victory to advance in the table, and tighten the screws on the Iranian team, which has six points, after achieving two consecutive victories over the Syrian and Iraqi teams. The UAE national team has two points from a disappointing draw at home against Lebanon, followed by a second draw against the Syrian team, and despite the difficulty of the confrontation, “Al-Abyad” wants to exploit the ground workers and the public to reap three points that will be a great dose of hope in the competition for one of the qualifying cards to the World Cup, Ali Mabkhout’s comrades are seeking to resolve the outcome of the confrontation in their favor, especially that the next match in the fourth round against the Iraqi team will also be played on Emirati soil.

In the other group, the Saudi team appears to be the best in terms of results among the Arab Asian teams, which gives it a great boost to win at home, when it faces the Japanese team, especially since the latter is not in its best condition, after losing at home at the beginning of its matches against the Omani team. . Al-Akhdar is counting on the skill of its coach, Herve Renard and his distinguished elements, led by Yasser Al-Shehri, Salman Al-Faraj and Salem Al-Dosari, in achieving the third victory in a row and competing with the “Australian Kangaroo” for the first qualifying card for the World Cup, after most of the expectations nominated the teams of Australia, Japan and Saudi Arabia to compete for direct qualification. to the World Cup.

For his part, the Omani team is a guest of its Australian counterpart in its third matches in Group B, and Oman had achieved a resounding victory at the expense of Japan in Osaka, with the start of the final qualifiers, but it seems that the euphoria of victory affected the performance of the Omani team, after which it lost at home to its Saudi brother A goal without a response.

Oman occupies fourth place with three points, and is looking to repeat the result of Japan’s position when it meets its host Australia, the leader of the group with 6 points from two matches, after passing China and Vietnam, respectively. The Omani team, which contains a mixture of experience and youth elements, all active in the local league, seeks to achieve a positive result despite knowing the difficulty of the task in front of the most prominent candidates to snatch the first card of the second group, that is, the Australian team.
