The win was Saudi's biggest upset in World Cup history.

Also, the Saudi government made the next day a national holiday to celebrate the victory, but the players got the gift of a lifetime.

Each player was reportedly gifted a Rolls Royce Phantom for the upset.

It was the first time Saudi Arabia has won an opening match at the World Cup and their second win in their last five appearances. The squad defeated Egypt 2-1 in the final match of the 2018 World Cup.

Argentina came into the tournament ranked No. 3 in the FIFA rankings and were favorites to potentially win the tournament in what is seen as Messi’s final World Cup run. It is the first time they have lost an opener since 1990.

According to Action Network, Saudi Arabia were +2300 underdogs, while Argentina floated at around -900 as the heavy favorite.

A 2023 Rolls Royce Phantom's list price begins at nearly $460,000, according to Car and Driver.

In their second game, the Saudis lost to Poland on Saturday.
