Saudi Arabia had a holiday after defeating Argentina in the World Cup in Qatar
After Argentina’s surprising victory, Saudi Arabian fans dare to dream: “No one can stop us now.”
As a result of Saudi Arabia‘s dramatic 2-1 World Cup upset victory over Lionel Messi’s Argentina, the country celebrated with a public holiday on Wednesday.
Schools were closed, and King Salman announced a holiday for all employees in the public and private sectors.
35 million people in the kingdom will now be counting on a successful showing against Poland on Saturday and Mexico on November 30.
The Green Falcons would almost surely go to the second round, which starts on December 2, with a second victory, but it will be important to watch how the rest of the team performs.
Tens of thousands of Saudis are scheduled to travel to Qatar for the upcoming matches, which are projected to be completely sold out.
Fans were ecstatic, and the entire Arab world joined Saudi Arabians in celebrating their victory.
In Jeddah, the national anthem of Saudi Arabia played joyfully from stores, cafes, and offices.
In order to celebrate, some people sang and yelled in the streets while others gave out Saudi flags and candy to onlookers.
