Saudi Arabia Players To Get Rolls Royce Car For Defeating Argentina At 2022 World Cup

Saudi Arabia players who delivered the first upset at the ongoing 2022 World Cup, will be getting a Rolls Royce each for the heroic win.

Saudi Arabia, ranked 51st in the world by FIFA and thus the World Cup’s lowest-ranked team, beat world No.3 Argentina in their Group C opener, ending the South American team’s 36-game unbeaten run. Goals from Saleh Al Shehri and Salem Al Dawsari delivered the big win after Lionel Messi converted a penalty kick.

Hours after Saudi King Salman declared Wednesday a public holiday to mark the national team’s stunning victory, Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud announced that each of the players will be rewarded with a Rolls Royce Phantom starting at £363,600.

It is not the first time that a Rolls Royce has been awarded to a Saudi Arabian player. Saeed Al-Owairan received one of the luxury cars after scoring the winning goal in a 1-0 victory over Belgium in the 1994 tournament.

That figure would equate to £9.4million for Bin Salman, who reportedly has a net worth of $8billion.

Next up for Saudi Arabia is Poland on Saturday, November 26, where a win would see them take a huge step towards reaching the knockout rounds of the competition.
