Reporter Joo Dae-eun= The roster is colorful. It is a lineup that has never been seen in Asia before.
On the 18th (Korean time), soccer statistics company TransferMarkt predicted Al Hilal’s lineup. The team has a huge budget and a huge roster.
Transfermarkt predicted a best 11 in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Up front is Al Shehri. Al Shehri last appeared for Saudi Arabia at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Al Shehri scored the equalizer against Argentina to help Saudi Arabia to a historic victory.
Neymar, Malcom, and Mitchell round out the top three. Neymar parted ways with his Paris Saint-Germain jersey this transfer window to join Al-Hilal. Al Hilal spent €90 million ($131.5 million) to acquire the world’s best striker.
Malcolm was once a highly touted prospect for Brazil, but he didn’t quite pan out as expected. He played for Barcelona and then Zenit St. Petersburg, but his performances were rather lackluster. In 2022/23, his potential was unleashed, with 25 goals and seven assists in 32 games.
Al Hilal’s other two signings, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Ruben Neves, were both ‘strands’ in Europe. Milinkovic-Savic joined Al Hilal from Lazio. Neymar played for Hwang Hee-chan and Wolverhampton Wanderers before switching teams.
There’s a familiar name on the back line. It’s former South Korean international Jang Hyun-soo. Since joining Al Hilal, Jang has been a mainstay in the defense. With Al-Hilal, he won three consecutive Saudi Pro League titles from 2019/20 to 2021/22 and the AFC Champions League in 2019 and 2021.
His partner is Kalidou Koulibaly. Koulibaly joined Al-Hilal from Napoli via Chelsea. He once made a name for himself as one of Europe’s best defenders, but his form has waned in recent years and he’s moved to Asia.바카라사이트
A new world-class player has joined Al Hilal. Yassine Bounouda, the goalkeeper who led Morocco to the quarterfinals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Bounou saved two shots in the penalty shootout against Spain in the Round of 16 to lift his team to victory. Another strength is his ability to build up. In the 2021/22 season, he scored two assists despite being in goal and won the Samora Award, which is given to the best goalkeeper.
