Sports Desk: Saudi Arabia won 2-1 against Messi’s Argentina at the Lucille Stadium. Arab countries are celebrating that victory. In order to make the festival more colorful, the Saudi government has declared a public holiday on November 23 in the country.
This holiday can be enjoyed by people working in the government, private sector and students of the country. News media Khaleej Times reported that this is the first case of declaring a public holiday after winning a match in the World Cup.
Argentina’s loss against Saudi Arabia is considered one of the ‘incidents’ in World Cup history. Earlier, Argentina lost against Cameroon in the first match of the group stage in 1990. This incident has happened earlier in the World Cup. Just as South Korea knocked out champions Germany in the World Cup in Russia. 2014 World Cup champions Spain exited with a loss to Chile.
