Saudi Arabia stunned Lionel Messi’s Argentina, beating the two-time winners 2-1 in one of the biggest upsets in the competition’s history.
The Cabinet said it hoped the team would continue playing with the same spirit and determination for which Saudis are known, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
It also thanked leaders of countries who had congratulated the Kingdom following the match.
At a weekly meeting headed by King Salman, the Cabinet also hailed the results of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s recent visits to South Korea and Thailand.
The outcome of the G20 Summit held in Indonesia last week, and Saudi support for efforts made to face international challenges, including responses to pandemics, were also discussed.
