World Cup 2022: Saudi players gifted luxury cars after upsetting Argentina

Nov 26, 2022

After Argentina became the victim of maybe the biggest upset in World Cup history in losing to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, star player Lionel Messi said his team felt "dead."

That makes one of them, because the Saudis sure weren't.

In fact, the Saudi government made the next day a national holiday to celebrate the victory, but the players got the gift of a lifetime.

Each player was reportedly gifted a Rolls Royce Phantom for the upset.

It was the first time Saudi Arabia has won an opening match at the World Cup and their second win in their last five appearances. The squad defeated Egypt 2-1 in the final match of the 2018 World Cup.
