Saudi Arabia’s World Cup heroes will each be gifted a Rolls Royce by the country’s royal family after stunning Argentina last week, according to reports. Lionel Messi and co. were defeated 2-1 by the Saudis in one of the biggest World Cup shocks.
Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud will present each of the players with an RM6 million Rolls Royce Phantom when they return from Qatar. It is the latest reward for the team’s seismic result.
Messi had given Argentina the lead before a remarkable comeback by Saudi Arabia.
Saleh Al Shehri equalised before Salem Al Dawsari struck a wonderful curling effort into the top corner of EMi Martinez’s goal.
Saudi Arabian people were already rewarded with a public holiday the day following the result.
Workers in the public and private sectors, as well as students, were allowed the day off to celebrate the result.
Europeans and Americans are angered by the organisations and the way Qataris treat the fans. Most fans are not really happy with the ban on alcohol, gay rights, display of public affection and other acts that are deemed legal and acceptable in the western world.
