Saudi 1st match: One of the “Arabs” greatest World Cup Games

Photos of the Crown Prince, HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman, were widely shared when he and his brothers watched the match between the Saudi national football team and Argentina at the World Cup competition being hosted in Qatar.

The images captured the depth of his happiness following the historic victory of the Saudi national team over Argentina on this particular day when the Kingdom’s flags emerged and sentiments of pride in the play of the Saudi players were visible on the field.

The pictures of the Crown Prince and his joy with this victory became the most circulated on social media, as many comments mentioned that it represents “the joy of a homeland.”

The Saudi prince was captured in the image cheering and hugging a close friend as he celebrated Saudi Arabia’s victory over Argentina in the game that brought the two of them together on Tuesday in the opening round of Group C at the World Cup in Qatar.

Congratulations came from all parts of the Arab nation to the Saudi national team, foremost of which was the congratulations of the UAE Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The ruler of Dubai Tweeted saying, “A well-deserved victory… combats performance… Arab joy… congratulations to the Saudi national team… who made us happy, entertained, and made us happy.”

Saudi Arabia broke its bad luck in its previous five participations in the opening matches when it failed to win any of them (4 defeats and one draw), before achieving a resounding victory today over Argentina, 2-1.

Saudi Arabia also prevented Argentina from equaling the record in the number of matches without losing, as the balance of “Al Bicelesti” stopped at 36 matches,

Whereas, Argentina would have equaled the record registered in the name of Italy, had it avoided losing in today’s match.

Argentina entered the tournament as one of the most prominent candidates for the title, led by its star Lionel Messi, the best player in the world 7 times.

Messi will likely play his last participation in the finals as it is his fifth time.

The last loss of Argentina dates back to the second of July 2019, when it fell to its traditional rivals in South America, Brazil, 0-2, in the semi-finals of the Copa America.
