Saudi Arabia’s coach Herve Renard (France), who was the only team to defeat champion Argentina at last year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar, resigned.

The Saudi Arabian Football Association said on the 29th, “We have decided to terminate the contract by mutual agreement with coach Renard.”

The reason Renard is stepping down from his position is that he will take the helm of the French women’s national team. 바카라

Coach Renard surprised the world by winning a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Lionel Messi-led Argentina in the first group C match of last year’s Qatar World Cup group stage.

They also conceded a goal in the 10th minute of the first half and scored two goals in the second half to turn the game around.

Although Saudi Arabia failed to advance to the round of 16 at the bottom of the group due to consecutive defeats against Poland and Mexico, they became the only team to defeat Argentina at the World Cup in Qatar last year.

Renard, who led the national team mainly in Africa, such as Zambia, Angola, Côte d’Ivoire, and Morocco, was appointed as the Saudi Arabian national team’s coach in 2019.

He led Saudi Arabia to the finals of the World Cup last year and had a successful term, setting the record for the most wins (18 wins) of all-time Saudi Arabian national team foreign coaches.

Coach Renard is scheduled to lead the French national team to participate in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in July this year.

Saudi Arabia played two home matches against Venezuela and Bolivia during this A match, losing both 1-2.
