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.
