Saudi Arabia replaces coach Helio dos Anjos with Nasser al-Jowhar

Saudi Arabia coach Helio dos Anjos has been replaced by Nasser al-Jowhar.
"(Dos Anjos) has been unable to develop and employ the technical capabilities of the players although he was given the opportunity during previous games," the federation that oversees sports in Saudi Arabia said in a statement Sunday.
The 50-year-old Dos Anjos, who is Brazilian, led Saudi Arabia for a year. Al-Jowhar, a 65-year-old former football player, has previously coached the national team.
The announcement came a day after Saudi Arabia defeated Lebanon 2-1 in an Asian group qualifier for the 2012 World Cup.
Saudi Arabia is second in Group 4 with nine points.
