One of the biggest surprises at the ongoing FIFA World Cup was Saudi Arabia’s win over two-time world champions Argentina. Saudi Arabia won the match 2-1 against Argentina and this certainly shook the status quo for many. While a massive disappointment for fans of Argentina, Saudi Arabia has been revelling in the victory and it is surely paying off for the players. As per recent reports, each of the football players will receive a Rolls-Royce Phantom from the government for the historic feat.

UK-based Express reports that Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud will present each of the players with the Phantom himself when they return from Qatar. The victory saw the people of Saudi coming to the streets for celebrations, while Arab news suggest that the King announced a celebratory holiday in the country.
