Faisal Al Dakhil 

Faisal Al-Dakhil or the King, a name associated with the first goal of Kuwait in the World Cup, and he was against the Czechoslovakian team in the World Cup Spain in 1982, after which he entered history through his wide door, and his passport was to play a charity match with the World Cup stars team against the European team of giants football .

Faisal Al-Dakhil, the star of Al-Qadisiyah club and the Kuwait national team in the mid-seventies and early eighties, left exploits and achievements that will remain immortal in the minds of Kuwaitis. Al-Dakhil’s fame and stardom prompted the former president of the federation, the late Sheikh Fahd Al-Ahmad, to call him “the King,” and he was one of the kings of football in the Arab region, where the most prominent achievements of Kuwait were associated with him, until he became the golden age of Kuwaiti football, and therefore he deserves to be the athlete of the century in his country. He (the King) had a unique talent and had several advantages. He was a natural scorer, tall, strong in build, light in movement, quick-witted, a good dribbler who improves the behavior of the ball, uses his feet with the same ability, is good at shooting fixed and moving balls and head kicks. Al-Dakhil became famous in the Gulf and Arab surroundings, and he was considered one of the bleftest strikers that the Gulf region produced, especially after the decisive goals in which he led his country to international forums, most notably against Saudi Arabia in the World Cup qualifiers. Al-Dakhil’s career was full of victories from the Gulf Championships to the Asian Nations Cup to the 80th Moscow Olympics and the 82nd World Cup in Spain.

the start
Starting from scratch, Al-Dakhil was born on July 13, 1957. He loved football since his childhood. At the age of ten, he participated with his colleagues in forming a team, and all he wished for from football was to enjoy beautiful moments with them, and his wishes were modest and he could not imagine that he would become a player referred to as stubbornness. In 1969, Al-Dakhil joined the Qadisiyah Youth Center, one of the centers concerned with youngsters, and at fourteen he joined the team’s cubs, and then rose in its ranks until he reached the youth category (under 20 years) season 72-73 and then played his first official match against Salmiya and his team won 2 -1 He was the owner of the pass from which the second goal came. And he moved to the first team of Qadisiyah in the 73-74 season, and it was his first official match with the adults in front of Kazma, and it was the main turning point in his career, as the coach asked him to play in the offensive line instead of the midfield alongside Jassem Yaqoub and Karim Nassar, and with the passage of time he formed with Yaqoub is the most dangerous duo in Kuwait stadiums so far.

Gulf Cup:
The Gulf courses and the story of the intruder The Arab Gulf courses are a long story that has special meanings due to the interest they represent for the Gulf countries, as they are considered as their own (Mondiale). Al-Dakhil followed the first Gulf Cup tournament in Bahrain in 1970 over the phone, and the second in Riyadh in 72 via television. That is why he increased his determination and enthusiasm to develop his level to join the national team and play in the Gulf tournaments. His wish was fulfilled and he participated under the leadership of the famous Brazilian Mario Zagallo in the fourth session in Doha in 1976, which witnessed the entry of the strong Iraqi national team. The beginning was strong for Al-Dakhil, as he scored two goals in the victory of Kuwait over Qatar 2-0, and added another in the goal of Iraq (2-2), The tournament champion was not known until after a decisive match between Kuwait and Iraq again, and the title was for Kuwait for the fourth time in a row, which witnessed his launch to wide fame. Al-Dakhil did not succeed in the fifth round in 78 in Baghdad, where Kuwait came again, and he did not participate in the sixth and seventh rounds in Abu Dhabi and Muscat in the years 80 and 82 respectively, but he returned to lead the Kuwaiti team to win the Cup of the eighth session in Bahrain in 84, stealing the spotlight with beautiful goals . The ninth session in Riyadh in 1986 was the last in which Al-Dakhil participated and played the first match with Qatar, and the third with Iraq before he then bid farewell to the tournament with which he lived for many years. Where Kuwait came again, and he did not participate in the sixth and seventh rounds in Abu Dhabi and Muscat in the years 80 and 82 respectively, but he returned to lead the Kuwait national team to win the Cup of the eighth session in Bahrain in 84, stealing the spotlight with beautiful goals.

Asian Cup:
Asian Cup Al-Dakhil participated in the Asian Nations Cup three times and stood on the podium, where Kuwait ranked second in the first tournament in Tehran in 76 and won the title in the second tournament that was held on its soil in the year 80, and fell to third place in Singapore 84 in the third championship. Al-Dakhil played in the first tournament, prejudicing himself due to injury, and was satisfied with his team in second place, and after 4 years, he succeeded with his colleagues in overcoming the obstacle of the other teams and scored one of the two goals to beat Iran in the semi-finals. (The King) created and emptied his talent and art in the final match against South Korea, where he scored a goal and scored two to lead his team to a big win 3-0 and give it the Asian Cup title for the first time to be the first Arab team to win the championship title. In the third participation in 84 in Singapore, Al-Dakhil and his team were not at their best, and they were satisfied with third place.

Moscow Olympics Al-Dakhil’s participation in the 1980 Moscow Olympics was the culmination of the national efforts of him and his teammates. The qualifiers that were held in Iraq were not a picnic within a strong group, but Al-Dakhil seemed confident in qualifying so that in a funny talk he said at the time: (If the Kuwaiti team does not win in the qualifiers, I will ask the Football Association not to choose me for the team again), and his confidence was left. The Kuwaiti team outperformed its Iraqi counterpart in the decisive match and reached the finals in Moscow. In the Olympics, the (King) continued his brilliance as usual and presented top-level matches and led his country to a great victory over Nigeria by scoring the three goals in its own net (3-1).

Before the decisive match with Saudi Arabia in Kuwait, Al-Dakhil suffered a chest infection, and the technical staff, led by Brazilian Carlos Alberto Pereira, worked to prepare him to participate. The (King) did not disappoint him, and minutes before the start of the match, he fired a missile from the middle of the field and exploded in the Saudi net, scoring Kuwait’s first goal. He scored the second goal from a difficult angle in the second half and carried his team to the World Cup, the largest international football forum. In Spain, Kuwait tied with Czechoslovakia 1-1 and lost to France 1-4 and England 0-1.

Jassim Yacoub 

Jassim Yaqoub .. the terrifying, the miracle of the Gulf, Buhamoud, the jewel, the teacher and the pioneer of the ball, all of which are nicknames that Jassim Yaqoub was famous for because he was not like other players in the region, but was actually an emperor over all the players of the Gulf..

Bou Hammoud started his football life like other players in the region as a player In the popular neighborhoods, and that was around 1963, after which he played in the Al-Fayha Youth Center. Al-Qadisiyah Club in a decent and honorable way, and this qualified him to play in the ranks of the Kuwaiti Blue, and it was the real beginning towards the lights, fame and the love of millions..!!

The second Gulf Championship in Riyadh in 1972 was the real breakthrough for Jassim Yaqoub at the Gulf and Arab levels, and the region’s fans knew him well. The second Gulf championship was on a date with the birth of an Arab star that Kuwaitis would be proud of until now.. The region was on a date with the birth of the terrifying one who terrified the guards The goal and his skill tore the nets of the teams and cut with his intelligence and distorted all the lines of defense he faced, thus he deserved the title of the jewel of Gulf football.

In the second tournament, Jassim Yaqoub drew attention to him and scored three goals with his country’s team, and Kuwait won the championship cup, but in the third tournament Jassem stole the admiration and robbed the eyes of the eyes and crowned the top scorer of the tournament with six goals, making his country’s team retain the tournament’s cup forever..

Jassim Yaqoub proves that he is terrifying and makes Bu Hammoud everyone make sure that he is the top scorer who knows where the shoulder is eaten from and wins the top scorer title again in the fourth Gulf championship that was held in Qatar in 1976. In the championship cup for the fourth time in a row, including three times in which the Kuwaiti champion Jassem Yaqoub participated. Thus, Jassim Yaqoub becomes the second top scorer in the Gulf championships with 18 goals after Saudi Majid Abdullah, who scored 20 goals.

Jassim Yaqoub won many titles and without winning the top scorer title in championships The Gulf Cup twice in a row, he also won the title of top scorer in the Olympic qualifiers in Baghdad in 1980 and won the golden boot for winning the title of Arab top scorer for scoring 31 goals in the league. He also won the league top scorer title 5 times, including four consecutive times in 74, 75, 76 and 77. He was chosen as the best player in Kuwait in 1977.

With Kuwaiti football, Bou Yacoub achieved its greatest achievements and led it to achieve the famous triple, which is winning the Asian Nations Championship in 1980 and reaching the Olympics in the ball in Moscow, as well as the deserved access to the World Cup finals in Spain in 1982 ..

Every goalkeeper playing against Jassem Yacoub was well aware that it is not an easy thing Exiting the match without hitting any goals in his own net, and no goalkeeper was spared the Kuwaiti attack, which leads Jassem Yaqoub, who forms a dangerous duo with Faisal Al-Dakhil, along with Al-Anbari, Hamad Bu Hamad, Fathi Kamil and the rest of the golden generation of Kuwaiti football, which I do not think will ever be repeated.

Perhaps our star Jassim Yaqoub is one of the few strikers who, during their career with their teams and national teams, presented the most wonderful examples of sincerity and loyalty to the jerseys they wear. Bou Yacoub was called the teacher because he taught everyone how to score. Jassim Yaqoub scored his goals with the head and the left and left feet, and with great ingenuity that made Proshtaş say that he is a player He has three legs because he used both his feet and his head with amazing skill and craftsmanship and scored goals from different positions and here he scored a beautiful goal (double kick) against the famous goalkeeper Ahmed Trabelsi and also shook Bou Yacoub the net of the famous and indomitable Russian goalkeeper Lev Yashin, where Bou Yacoub received the ball On his chest with confidence and deposited a missile ball that Yashin only saw as she danced in his goal!!

Bou Yacoub also scored a beautiful goal against Iraq in the final of the Gulf Championship in 1976, and three wonderful goals against the Hamburg club team, a wonderful goal with his golden head in the World Cup finals, and a beautiful goal against the Soviet Union team in the Olympic Games in Moscow. Many of the world’s top scorers are available, and there is no evidence for this that TV stations search in the archive of Kuwait’s goals to display the goals of Jassim Yaqoub when looking for beautiful goals that are scored only by engineers like Bo Yaqoub..

Success had to come to an end, but the end of Jassim Yaqoub was sad. The cursed injury forced him to retire early and deprived the Arab people of enjoying watching the greatest Arab football stars.. He is terrifying who knows only the nets that vibrate only!!

But Jassim Yaqoub refused to stay away from his football lover and in honor of his loyalty to his club Al-Qadisiyah and his career full of achievements with the Kuwaiti Blue The position of Director of Youth and Sports Organizations Department and the position of Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Kuwait Club for the Disabled ..

Jassem Yaqoub has millions of fans throughout the Arab world .. How not? He is the star who has proven that goals come from all sides. If you have a brave player who has three legs, a brave heart, a golden head, and determination that only knows victory.. He is terrifying.. Jassem Yaqoub..

Abdulaziz Al-Anbari 

The flying wing of the Kuwait national team. He is the skilled sniper in front of the net. He is the savior of the Kuwait team. He is the hero of the first and last moments.

He was born on January 3, 1954, and his name is Abdulaziz Saud Abdullah Al-Anbari. He has been working for years in the Ministry of Social Affairs and ranked third among the ten members of his family..

He was a player He was in the basketball and volleyball team in his school and then went to play football with the Kuwait Club Cubs team, and that was in 1967 when he was 13 years old, and then he moved in the Sunni ranks of the Kuwait team until he reached the first

team . Al-Kuwait Club and leads the Kuwait national team and always sees him as the main guide of the team on the field and this is what earned him the respect of everyone and their obedience to his orders..

Al-Anbari won the sixth Gulf Cup, which was held in Abu Dhabi in 1982, with his companions. He received the championship cup from Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. During this Gulf session and others, Al-Anbari presented the distinguished technical level that qualified him to be one of the greatest players in the Arab Gulf..

Abdulaziz Al-Anbari was famous for his devotion to the blue jersey. . How not ? He is the leader of Kuwait, team and national team, and he is the good example for all the players of the Arab Gulf. Therefore, Al-Anbari rejected all the professional offers he received outside Kuwait and continued with his club Kuwait, sacking all financial temptations!!

He played his first official match with the Kuwait national team against Iran in 1973 in Ahwaz, but he played his first official match with his Kuwaiti team against the Al-Arabi club team. On that day, Abi Al-Anbari scored a goal in the first match he played, so that his team won two goals against a goal, and Al-Anbari took the first step in the path of embracing the net And forever!!

Al-Anbari was one of the members of the Kuwaiti golden battalion that achieved the lion’s share of Kuwait’s achievements, which included Jassem Yaqoub, Al-Dakhil, Trabelsi and others. The people of the desert are able to achieve success and achieve the impossible, and thus was the logic of Al-
