Saudi Arabia seeks Spanish help ahead of World Cup

Saudi Arabia's attempts to prepare for the World Cup are not confined to arranging friendlies or hiring world-famous coaches.

After years of Saudi Arabian players staying home, nine were sent to clubs in the top two tiers of Spanish football in January until the end of the current season.

Three of those, Fahad Al Muwallad, Salem Al-Dawsari and Yahya Shehri, are established internationals and have been named in the latest roster to take on Ukraine and Belgium in World Cup warm-ups on Friday and next Tuesday.
