Past Performances: How has Saudi Arabia Fared at the FIFA World Cup?
The FIFA World Cup started in 1930. At that time, Saudi Arabia was not a member of FIFA due to which they did not participate in world cups.
The Saudi Arabia football federation was established in 1956. Even after that, Saudi Arabia did not enter the qualification rounds of the FIFA World Cup. They started participating in qualification rounds in 1978 and failed to qualify till 1990.
The 1994 FIFA World Cup was a historic one where the team did not just qualify for the world cup but also reached the Round of 16. In the course, they defeated Belgium, and Morocco in group stage and lost to Sweden in the Round of 16.
Barring the 2010 and 2014 world cups, Saudi Arabia has qualified for every world cup since then. Keeping side the heroics of the 1994 world cup, Saudi Arabia has failed to progress through the group stage at every FIFA World Cup edition played.
