I could just call up 47 year old Miura lol.

Oh ok so if it has 0 on there that means its not possible to get a pass. Ok cool cheers buddy.

I echo what Jogo said about Argentina, Poland and Serbia are good options.

I also think Uruguay, Tajikstan, Singapore, Qatar, Jamaica,

Gibraltor is only 2 years by the way which would be an interesting save.

Anyway Cheez3y I will let you carry on. Sorry for hijacking your thread.

Nah, its a great topic to discuss.

Im in the middle of the slightly boring offseason. :D

 

Gibraltar its only to english players 2 years, the rest need more.

But still, with the right scouting and a lot of time, its possible.

Oh ok well that dampens Gibraltor for me then lol.

I am thinking Qatar, Singapore or China if I do a save similar to yours.

I would love to find out how many years for nationality in Ghana and Ivory Coast. I think I will start an Ivory Coast team save later.

Qatar is good, but a bit slow due to registration rules.

Only 3 foreign + 2 asian foreign. But only 3 years.

So If you can get Korean or Japanese players at age 18 - 19 in, they might be willing to play for you.

 

China is the problem only in the club.

Even tho players are naturalized, they will count to the foreign rules, only 1 player doenst.

 

Singapore only 4 foreign spots.

 

Ghana and Ivory Coast you need to check urself, just load up the costums DBs and look. But there will the money problem.

Yeah I will try bring in other Africans to Ivory Coast as I am going to start a save with RC Abidjan after Jogo recommended them to me. I wanted to try do what you are doing and what ToMexico is doing in DR Congo but I don't think I can implement both visions.

Yeah I wish Sigames would have more African nations instead of just South Africa. Africa is such a great place for bargains. 

If you were to pick another nation to do what you are doing with Saudi Arabia what would be your best picks ?

Ofcause I did some "homework" before starting this thing. :D

 

In my eyes the only viable options for a 10-25 year save are..

Asia: Saudi Arabia, Qatar, China

South America: Bolivia, Ecuador

North America: Canada with MLS club

Europe: Belarus, Ukraine, Wales with something like Swansea, Cardiff (but only works with not UK players)

Africa: The Big Problem is money and reputation, so you cant really bring in quality players like Brazilians.

 

Maybe Poland, Serbia or Uruguay, but they got quality players.

And their chance of winning the World Cup is much higher with their basis.

August 2026 Part 2 - Transfer OUT

https://i.gyazo.com/3bf1615bf8bb8df0a723aeb780b8ec5d.png

9...yes 9 players retired. This is slightly a problem in the CL. :D

So I might run into some problems, because I pretty much all KSA veterans in the CL.

https://i.gyazo.com/20c21bcb2db37089e8db94ab4c9b653e.png

https://i.gyazo.com/69864dcea3b9182c8c62beefb1a02494.png

Roughly 80+ million we made this summer.

The big one is Mamabolo.

But I also sold Sieb, Macedo, Igor, Bresolin which never played for us.

Marvin played only the CL and cup games last season.

 

Also most of the foreign players, which are goin to KSA clubs are close to gettin a KSA pass.

They are to old to play in the U21.

Great game against France! Hopefully the next WC with better players in the national team. 

Belarus is an excellent choice for this project, only a player is available for the national team after 5 years.

Awesome choices. I appreciate you giving me your thoughts.

I am just starting a save with RC Abidjan in Ivory Coast as well as being Ivory Coast manager. I am mostly doing an Ivory Coast club dynasty save but also will try convert players into Ivory Coast nationals as well.

I will post in the careers thread. Cheers for the inspiration buddy.

I think Europe countries like Serbia and Poland will be to easy. Serbia has a bad restricion with foreign players. Qatar has a 9 foreign players rule in the competition so that's not impossible. Only in the CL problems with a 3 + 1 rule (1 must be asian). 

Still, in most countries the players will get a passport after 3 years but still need to live 5 years in the country to be available for the national team. 

Belarus still an interesting option. Don't know how the rules are with foreign players.

Did you put in a % of next fee clause in the transfer when you sold him cos if he does go that will be a good little earner for you.

Crazy that Mamabolo wasn't bothered to have somebody help him settle in KSA (the place is like nowhere else on earth) and yet wanted a friend there in Leicester :lol:

September 2026 Part 3 - Transfer & Squad Overview

OUT Part 2

https://i.gyazo.com/2f1e5b12c384688e7fdef9958897e0f1.png

Cleaning out the KSA youth players.

They are not got enough for us, but maybe for the national team.

Also the usually loan business.

 

IN

Finished in September?

Yes this time. :D

https://i.gyazo.com/2043c73956d177888392d7ce3d11e233.png

https://i.gyazo.com/8a92a21855b289f1b2432f2cbea95edc.png

Without the forced buy of Diego Queiros, that would be an amazing transfer window.

After the Mamabolo transfer, I threated myself with a little gem.

Darlan Andrade is coming in October, when he will gettin 18 y/o.

Right in time for the registration.

 

Those players will not feature this season, their are for the youth team or loan army:

Arriola / Stark / Marcellan / Al-Tamimi / Jacobs / Imamovic / Kilama / Sousa

 

 

Squad

 

Goal

Gabriel Brazao [F] // Ibrahim Hawsawi [HG] // Meshari Sanyoor

No need of an improvement.

Brazao is almost ready and with Hawsawi we got an awesome young HG player!

https://i.gyazo.com/3ed5b7842c070a6f3ae7088a5d478065.png

 

Right Back

Saad Al-Sharani // Sultan Al-Ghannam // Mohammed Al-Burayk

Obviously this needs some improvement.

Oonce Brazao is a KSA player... a foreign player comes in.

Saad comes from straight from England.

 

Center Back

Bright Arrey-Mbi [F] // Diego Quieros [F] // Hassan Al-Tambakti // German Conti [N] // Ziyad Al-Sahfi // Mohammed Al-Khaibari

Great selection of players. Even if Arrey get capped, he gettin still a KSA pass next year. Great for the club!

Al-Sahfi will be sold, once we are out of the CL. He is too good, to rarely play.

 

https://i.gyazo.com/a8ea122b666faaec1e4bc9fcc538d948.png

The dreams is still alive, but he is still in the national team.

And at some point he will a get sub appears.

 

https://i.gyazo.com/512005394988521573d9c70b828a77cd.png

Queiros will be 100% a KSA national team player in 740 days.

 

https://i.gyazo.com/58c0af9f8fb7a18e4b91845946c3fe41.png

Conti will also gettin a KSA pass, great rotation player for the club.

 

Left Back

Arthur Zagre [N] // Ahmed Al-Nakhli [HG] // Mohammed Al-Nakhli

With Ahmed we got a 2nd good academy player.

Decent enough to be an rotation option.

 

Zagre is almost ready!

https://i.gyazo.com/054534ef44a1d97f4806360d7b44c43f.png

 

Midfield

DLP Torben Rhein [F] // Mukhtar Ali // Saleh Al-Eisa [HG]

CM Angelo Stiller [F] // Ibrahim Mahnashi // Abdulrahman Al-Dossari

Nowhere near are Stiller and Rhein from the German national team.

Both need only 1000 days, so they could be part of the WC 2030 I think.

With Saleh we got a 3rd academy player beein a option.

 

Winger

RW Lucas Necul [N] // Darlan Andrade [F]

LW - Abdulrahman Ghareeb // Sultan Al-Sawadi // Mazrouq Al-Dossary

With Necul and Ghareeb we got an awesome duo.

 

Darlan will be the part of the project WC 2034.

I dont know, why he got ZERO! youth caps for Brazil.

He looks so damn good!

 

https://i.gyazo.com/52b351427a35392cd954edf352480c87.png

Lucas is gettin his papers!!!

 

Striker

Peter Bacher [F] // Abdullah Al-Hamdan // Arian Kalantari [F - CL & Cup only]

Ribamar [N] // Abdulfattah Adam // Mabrouk Majrashi

Lets see if Bacher can be the successor of Mamabolo. He could also be part of project WC 2034.

Kalantari will play only the CL and Cups. He is English and Iranian.

So if he does well, I hope for some money from English clubs.

 

[F] = Foreign // [HG] = Home Grown // [N] = Naturalize

https://i.gyazo.com/0d3d8aaea71ed20dd71f10d740323b76.png

https://i.gyazo.com/f7dc272c7580026243a14c9468f8d603.png

I like the team very much.

We are probably 2-3 years younger and like 50-60k/w wages lighter.

The dream is over, after 1521 days.

But he will still be out of the foreign spots next season.

 

To bad 😔

He played an official game or friendly? I was looking for him in my game but didn't find him... Maybe I need to set Germany as playable.

Official, he played a nations league game.

 

I must admit, I tried to reload it a couple of time, just to see if he will get a cap.

He always did, so I went back to the main save state and continued.

 

You need the 3rd tier actived, he is a Bayern II player.

The easy part is only the league stuff.

For the national team you need to choose the right players, which are one the edge of gettin a call up from their home nation.

For the most part, I did this.

He was the only one I gambled on, due the fact he had already 3 nations to choose.

 

But you always get scared by those massages.

https://i.gyazo.com/c0e85583761cbba4530e06bb86709fea.png

Arrey is capped.

Rhein and Stiller are also a slight gamble, I dont think they get called up.

Im more worried about Brazao. (Wendel is an Al-Ahli player)

And ofcause Allison and Ederson are still around.

Thats basicly the entire U21.

 

Also we got the first player with an KSA pass, which I brought into the country.

https://i.gyazo.com/20ec0eb0f0575952ac4797ec99b66c37.png

He is not good enough for Al-Fateh, but for most of the KSA clubs.

Also I might give him some games in the national team.

His star ratings is not that good, but he is physical and technicals are alright.
