Saudi players to be rewarded with ‘Rolls Royce’ for amazing win against Argentina


The nation recorded one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history

Not many had predicted Saudi Arabia to top Group C after the first round of matches, but KSA produced an absolute shocker in their opening match. The Saudi Arabian team notched up one of the biggest upsets in Football on Tuesday. They defeated Argentina by 2-1 in their opening game of the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Lionel Messi scored the first goal of the match from the penalty spot after ten minutes into the match. Saudi Arabia scored twice in a gap of ten minutes at the start of the second half. They held on to their lead brilliantly for the remaining 40 minutes to cause a huge upset. Saudi Arabia had 2 shots on target throughout the match and both went inside the nets whereas Argentina had 6 shots on target and none ended up on the goal.

Saleh Alshehri and Salem Aldawsari were the goal scorers for Saudi Arabia. Prince Mohammed’s brother Prince Saud posted pictures on Instagram after the victory. The picture showed the crown prince prostrating in thanks to God in a room after the match.

Public Holiday

For their performance in the game, Saudi Arabian King Salman declared a public holiday in the country on Wednesday and now the King has decided to reward FIFA World Cup-bound players of the Saudi Arabia team with a Rolls-Royce Phantom each.

This will not be the first time that the Saudi King will reward football players with such a big award. Back in 1994, its forward player Saeed Al-Owairan also received a Rolls Royce as a reward.

For their splendid performance against Argentina, KSA is currently placed at the top of Group C. Saudi Arabia will next step into the ground tomorrow as they take on Poland who played a draw in their opening game against Mexico. If Saudi Arabia went on to win this match, they will be almost get qualified for the round of 16.
