Hussain Abdulghani Al-Sulaimani

Club: Al Ahli
Position: Defender

Famed for his bursts forward, at France 98 he won one of the two penalties which gave Saudi Arabia their only point of the tournament against South Africa.

He is one of his side's most prominent attacking outlets down the left but also has a reputation of being something of a hot-head.

Abdulghani is the first choice full-back but will have to keep a lid on his short temper in the cauldron of a World Cup.
