The Great World Cup Goals, #2: Saeed Al-Owairan (Saudi Arabia) vs Belgium, 1994 (Video)

By Chris Wright

Soccer - World Cup France 98 - Group C - France v Saudi Arabia

The goal that saw Saudi Arabian striker Saeed Al-Owairan briefly dubbed “The Maradona of the Arabs” before fading back into footballing obscurity.

Just five minutes into the Saudi’s third and final group game, Al-Owairan proceeded to charge almost the entire length of the pitch, bobbing and weaving past several Belgian defenders before sliding his shot past Michel Preud’homme to score the only goal of the game and send his unfavoured country through to the second round…

Ball-hog.
