AFTER their historic victory against Argentina, all citizens of Saudi Arabia have been given a national holiday.

In the second-half comeback of the Middle East nation, they managed a monumental win over one of the tournament favourites.

And as a result, King Salman has agreed to a proposal by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to declare tomorrow a national holiday.

This means the Saudis can continue their celebrations without worrying about having to go to work tomorrow.

Both private and public sector employees receive this break along with students of all educational ages.

The players in the dressing room went wild after the win, jumping onto tables and singing in celebration.

At first, the game seemed to be going according to plan for Lionel Messi and company after the Paris-Saint-Germain superstar converted an early penalty.

However, after they ruled out three goals for offside in the first half, Saudi Arabia took the game to the Copa America champions.

Saleh Al-Shehri scored the equalizer for the Gulf States before Salem Al-Dawsari scored a goal straight from the top drawer to put his nation ahead.

Almost 40 minutes of stoic body defense on the line ensued as they held on to the 2-1 win.


Roy Keane, who previously laughed at Saudi Arabia’s chances ahead of the World Cup, slammed Messi’s flops while speaking on ITV.

He said: “There is no aggression, there is body, but you have to go and attack the ball, there is no composure, they lost their heads.

“Look at Di Maria here! Di Maria, my God. she [Saudi Arabia] had something to hold onto at this point.

“When they lead 2-1, they look at Argentina and say, ‘Listen, that’s a long way back for you’.

“They needed quality, but they didn’t show that quality. Di Maria, decision making…they come in a position or two, they’ve hesitated, Saudi Arabia put bodies on the line, they’ve been fantastic.

“But Argentina must do better. Saudi Arabia was aggressive, they were big and strong, had a bit of luck as you need it, the goalkeeper did very well but Argentina’s quality was poor.”
