The Saudi Sports Minister sends a message to the “Al-Akhdar” players after bidding farewell to the Qatar World Cup

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The Saudi Minister of Sports, Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, commented, on Wednesday, on his country’s exit from the 2022 World Cup after losing to Mexico with two goals to one, in its last match in Group C of the tournament. .

And the Saudi minister said, through his Twitter account: “Thank you to our stars, you did not fall short..and thanks to our dear audience..and the best of them is in others for everyone.”

Mexico had scored the first goal in the match at the start of the second half through striker Henry Martin at the 47th minute, after a much flopped start for the “green”.

And while Saudi Arabia tried to return to the match, Luis Chavez scored the second goal in the 52nd minute, before Salem Al-Dosari scored the only goal for Saudi Arabia in stoppage time.

With this result, Saudi Arabia bid farewell to the tournament, after its score was frozen at three points from the historic victory it achieved over Argentina at the start of its World Cup campaign.

Poland qualified, accompanied by Argentina, to the second round at the expense of Mexico, with a single goal scored by Salem Al-Dosari, and the conflict between the two teams was separated.

It is noteworthy that a video clip, circulated earlier on Twitter, showed the condolences of Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, to the player Abdul-Ilah Al-Maliki, after his “mistake” in the “Al-Akhdar” match and the Polish national team, in the World Cup finals.

And the Saudi midfield, Abdul Ilah Al-Maliki, had caused the Polish national team’s second goal at the 82nd minute, after he failed to keep the ball, as striker Robert Lewandowski snatched it from between his feet, then put it in the net.

And the Saudi Minister of Sports appeared, pulling Al-Maliki’s arms, during their meeting in the dressing room, telling him: “Raise your head,” which sparked a wide interaction in the media.
