Saudi Arabia named Salem Al-Dawsari, the player whose goal earned them a famous victory against Argentina in their World Cup opener, as captain for their second match against Poland on Saturday.
Poland are captained again by Robert Lewandowski, the Barcelona forward who is still looking for the first World Cup goal of his career after he missed a penalty in his side’s opening 0-0 draw with Mexico.
Salman Al-Faraj, who usually captains Saudi Arabia, is not in the starting line-up after suffering an injury in the team’s opening match.
Argentina face Mexico in the other Group C match later Saturday.
