The Saudi Arabian legend helped his country to qualify for the FIFA World Cup for the very first time, at USA 1994, where he found the net against Morocco. The prolific striker later played at France 1998, Korea/Japan 2002 and Germany 2006, scoring a total of three goals in nine matches.
“The pressure was to qualify for the World Cup. Of course, someone can now say ‘ok, we’ve qualified, that’s it’. But for me it’s not like that, we want to make history, achieve something different. In my head the pressure is to achieve something different from what we have done. Not just going there, three games and thank you very much. That doesn’t go through my head.”
