Ah, oil money. According to the British newspaper Express, each of the players in the Saudi Arabia national team will receive a Rolls-Royce from the country’s royal family after the impressive victory over Argentina.
One of the great upsets of the World Cup in Qatar (so far) was Saudi Arabia’s 2-1 victory over Argentina, last Tuesday, which tasted like a world title. With 48 places separating the two teams in the rankings, you had to be very confident to expect a victory like that.
It is possible that even Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud was surprised – Saudi Arabia had only won three World Cup games so far. He will present players with luxury cars from the British manufacturer.
His father, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, even announced a commemorative holiday in the country after a suggestion made by the prince.

The fact is that some Saudi concessionaire will start 2023 with the goal of a few months beaten. The most affordable model, the Rolls-Royce Ghost, part of the SAR 1,345,300, or R$1.9 million at current exchange rates.
Its second generation, launched in 2020, is 5.55 m long and 1.98 m wide, in addition to pampering such as the ceiling with 850 LED dots simulating a starry sky. Your 6.75-liter V12 biturbo engine is capable of generating 571 hp and 86.5 kgfm, and the transmission is an eight-speed automatic.
If the Saudi royal family wants to be even more generous, they can present players with the Rolls-Royce SUV Cullinan, which costs the equivalent of R$ 2 million. It would be ironic for the world’s biggest oil exporter to present its national team with the Spectre, the first electric Rolls-Royce in history.
