The Saudi Arabia national football team (Arabic: منتخب السعودية لكرة القدم) (known by its fan as al-Sogour which means "The Falcons" or al-Akhdar which means "The Green") is the national team of Saudi Arabia and is controlled by the Saudi Arabia Football Federation. They are regarded as a newcomer on the world scene, having made their first World Cup in 1994 and upsetting Belgium at the group stage before falling to Sweden in the next round. The side were dismissed in the first round of the next two Cup tournaments, including an 8-0 walloping by Germany in 2002.

Saudi Arabia won the Asian Cup three times, in 19841988, and 1996. They won the World Under-16 Championship in 1989.

On June 82005, they qualified for their fourth World Cup by beating Uzbekistan 3-0 in Riyadh.
