Saudi Arabia’s national football team plane has faced an engine failure during their flight to Russia’s Rostov-on-Don for the World Cup game against Uruguay, which is scheduled to be held on Wednesday.

According to the spokesman of Rossiya Airlines, the incident happened due to a bird strike. Moreover, videos uploaded on Twitter showed fire erupting from the engines underneath the wings.

However, the Saudi players were shown on Monday night landing safely and heading to their residence. The Saudi national team airplane was provided by the IATA organizational committee for the teams participating in the World Cup, according to the Saudi Arabian Football Federation.

The Saudi team has shocked the Arab world on the opening match for 2018 World Cup as they lost 5-0 against Russia in Moscow last week.

WE SAID THIS: Good luck Saudi team in your next match against Uruguay!
