FILE - In this Nov. 15, 2016, file photo, then Argentina's coach Edgardo Bauza gives instructions to his players during a 2018 World Cup qualifying soccer match against Colombia in San Juan, Argentina. Bauza replaced Bert van Marwijk as head coach of Saudi Arabia just days after the Dutchman led the team to its first qualifying spot at a World Cup since 2006. A win over Japan on Sept. 5, 2017 sealed Saudi Arabia’s place at Russia in 2018, but van Marwijk, who took the job in 2015, and the Saudi Arabia Football Federation (SAFF) were unable to agree on a new contract.
