Saudi Arabia’s football team won against Argentina in the World Cup on Tuesday.
Videos and photos on social media show Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in a group hug, expressing his joy after the big win.
Argentina couldn’t beat Saudi Arabia, competing in their sixth World Cup but had never before won an opening game.
The 2-1 win against Argentina sent pride across the Arab World.
The Saudi victory is historic as it is the first Fifa World Cup staged in the Middle East.
His Majesty Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, also congratulated the Saudi team and the Crown Prince after the match.
“A deserved victory. Combative performance. An Arab joy,” he wrote in his post. BKM/ Expat Media
