The Kingdom's national team was warming up for their World Cup campaign in Russia with a friendly win of 2-0 over Greece in Seville, Spain on Tuesday. Saudi Arabia's team initiated the scoring within 19 minutes of the game, all thanks to Villareal's Salem Al Dossari, one of the many Saudis on loan to Spanish clubs. 

In a report by Gulf News, the team's (coached by Argentina's Juan Antonio Pizzi), win on the defeat was confirmed 10 minutes from its regulation time after Saudi player Mohammed Kanoo hit the second score. 

Saudi Arabia will face the hosts in the tournament's opener to be conducted on June 14. Greece, however, are not qualified for Russia 2018.
