All Saudi Arabia players will be rewarded with a Rolls Royce each following their stunning victory against soccer giant Argentina in the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

As per reports, Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud will be giving them a RM6 million Rolls Royce Phantom each.

The Green Falcons came from behind to beat Argentina 2-1 on November 22. Goals by Saleh Alshehri and Salem Aldawsari in a five-minute span early in the second half had given the Saudis a landmark result in the first World Cup staged in the Middle East.

After the upset victory, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman had declared a public holiday in the country to celebrate the national team’s glory.

The team now tops Group C with three points after their victory over the South Americans. They will next lock horns with Poland at 9 pm tomorrow.

This was not the first time that the Saudi Arabia royalty gave a Rolls Royce to their football players.

In 1994, its forward player Saeed Al-Owairan, who scored a goal against Belgium that was considered one of the greatest World Cup goals of all time, also received a similar reward.
