DOHA: The Saudi national team on Wednesday resumed preparations for their game against Poland on Saturday in the second round of the group stage of the FIFA World Cup.
Manager and technical director, Herve Renard, said he was satisfied with a recovery session held at the Green Falcons’ headquarters in Qatar.
Midfielder Riyadh Sharahili took part in training under the close watch of medical staff, but tests showed that Salman Al-Faraj had suffered a shin injury.
The Saudi squad is due to hold a training session at 4 p.m. on Thursday, at the Sealine Resort Stadium, which will be open to the media for the first 15 minutes.
Renard arranged a separate training session for players not involved in the team’s opening match against Argentina, which the Saudis won 2-1.
