Imagine this scenario for a moment: you are playing for a team that many consider one of the weakest in the World Cup and in your first game the team faces a football giant, and even with all the odds against your team, the result surprises and a luxury car reward comes into play.
This will happen with players from Saudi Arabia who will receive a Rolls-Royce as a reward after defeating Argentina 2-1.
And it's not just any Rolls-Royce, we're talking about a brand new Phantom that will be given as a reward to all players in the Arab team.
A very valuable reward for players from Saudi Arabia
It is worth remembering that Saudi Arabia is one of the richest countries in the world and this is not the first time that something similar has happened.
In 1994, the team qualified for the second round of the World Cup, and the striker who scored the winning goal against Belgium, Saeed Al-Owairan, received a very similar gift for his efforts.
Also, that goal ” a la Maradona ” is one of the best in the history of World Cups.
The prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed Bin Salman, is the one who offers the grand reward to his compatriots in the national team.
A brand new Rolls-Royce Phantom costs around US$ 460,000, and now multiply that by 26 players.
The prince would be willing to pay 12 million dollars for this “great gift”. For us mortals, it seems like an exaggeration, but for a very rich man, that amount is only a day or two of gain.
The victory of the Saudi national team was cause for celebration in that nation. The king decreed a vacation in the country for the victory, and with the good game that the team showed, it would not be improbable to see them classified for the second phase.
If players keep up this momentum and manage to advance to the next round, the next reward should be titanic, the size of a yacht or something more expensive.
