The Saudi Arabia soccer team is being rewarded in a big way for its stunning 2-1 upset of Argentina in the World Cup.
It was previously reported that the Saudi Arabia government declared a public holiday the day after the big win so that it could be commemorated, and now Harian Metro is reporting another big reward.
To honor the team, Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud is reportedly rewarding each player on the national team with a Rolls-Royce Phantom.
What a match! MBS will now give each player of the KSA TEAM one Rolls Royce each in addition to a billion dollars EACH for winning against Argentina!

No official statement has been given by the Saudi government.
The Green Falcons sit atop Group C following the historic win with three points, followed by Mexico and Poland with one. Argentina sits in the group basement and will have plenty of work to do if it wishes to reach the knockout stage of the tournament.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar kicked off with the group stage last weekend, with the championship game set for December 18 at Lusail Iconic Stadium.
