     CHILE 


    Since the former FC Barcelona player and Champions League winner Matteo Garralda took over the Chilean team, they have developed a lot. Under his leadership, they took their biggest success on continental level by making it to the final of the Pan American Championship on home ground in 2016. At the World Championship in France 2017, they made history by their first ever group phase win, beating Belarus. Three brothers imprinted the Chilean team in the previous years – the Feuchtmanns. Their German born grandfather went to Chile in the early 1920’s, his grandsons became the most famous players of their team, including professional contracts at European clubs. Besides, Marco Oneto was the most popular Chilean player – and the only one to win the Champions League (with Barcelona). Chile were the 24th and last team to qualify for the 2019 World Championship. And they even needed an extra-time, until the 39:36 victory against the hosts in the bronze final of the Pan-American Championship in Greenland was secured.

    SAUDI ARABIA

    Saudi Arabia qualified for their fourth World Championship in a row and their ninth in total. In 2013 in Spain they won the prestigious placement match 19/20 against their neighbours Qatar, but then those teams went separate ways. While Qatar strengthened their squad by naturalised players, the Saudis still count on players from their domestic league, mainly the top clubs Al-Noor and former Asian Champions League winners Mudhar. After the 1996 Olympic Champion Nenad Kljajic had developed the team for many years, the Croat was succeeded by Fernando Barbeito right after the 2017 World Championship in Spain. The Spaniard, a former FC Barcelona player, took over a well-rehearsed team. At the 2018 Asian Championship in Suwon, Korea, they made it to the semi-final after beating the hosts and Iran in the main round. In the semi they gave a tough fight to Bahrain, but finally lost 22:24. Saudi Arabia lost the bronze final too – against Korea 21:29. But all four semi-finalists had already booked their tickets to Germany and Denmark. Barbeito can count on an experienced squad, with the key players all around 30 years old.
