The coaching staff, under the guidance of Portuguese coach Emilio Peixe, is determined to prepare the team meticulously for this important match.

Peixe selected a roster of 24 players, featuring both experienced and new talents.

Notable inclusions in the squad are Abdul Rahman Al-Fadhli, Fahd Al-Azmi, Othman Al-Dosari, Moaz Al-Anzi, Hassan Hajiya, and many others.
