Saudi Arabia’s sensational 2-1 victory over Argentina on Tuesday at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar has sparked euphoria in the Islamic kingdom.

Saudis hail their heroes after “historic victory” over Argentina

Saudi media on Tuesday labelled one of the tournament’s greatest ever shocks as a “historic victory” and a “heroes’ fairytale.”

Saudi Arabia’s goalkeeper Mohammed Al-Owais was particularly praised, with his saves securing the win against the heavy favourites in the Lusail Stadium, north of Doha.

“A thousand, thousand congratulations, heroes,” wrote Saudi Sports Minister Abdalaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal on Twitter.

The head of the Saudi entertainment authority, influential sports official Turki Al-Sheikh, gave free entry to three amusement parks to celebrate the victory.

Supporters of the royal family also tried to exploit the success politically.

They pointed out that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had not put the team under pressure when receiving them before the World Cup, thus paving the way for success.

Bin Salman who is the heir to the throne and son of King Salman is the real strongman in Saudi Arabia.
