On the whole Arabic football teams are showing positive signs that they’re after a good World Cup rounds of 16 qualifying standing. In group G, Egypt secured a dramatic win over Guinea with a score of 3-2 While Algeria showed impressive attacking styles to Burkina and still coping up to join Egypt and Tunisia on six points standing. Arabic players are playing a more attacking style and have put harder work into their transitional play. They’re have been showing tangible progress in their defense area and working in alternatives of zonal marking and man-to-man system. With that standard of play, the Arabic teams are going to give their fans unpredictable and interesting matches. And that is safer to say a slot in the finals.
