Saudi Arabia Team Plane Catches Fire In Mid Air After 'technical Malfunction" by iamstanc(m): 9:12pm On Jun 18, 2018
Saudi Arabia's official team plane caught fire in mid air as they travelled to their next World Cup match.


Flames were seen from the engine as the Russian Airlines Airbus was en route to Rostov.

An official statement read: "The Saudi Football Federation wishes to reassure everyone about the safety of all members of the mission of the national team after a minor technical malfunction in an engine.

"The plane landed a few minutes ago at Rostov on Don Airport, and UNOMIG personnel are now safely heading to their residence."


The plane was a Russian Airlines Airbus A319-100.

They next take on Uruguay after a chastening 5-0 loss to hosts Russia on Thursday.

They need to win their next match or Iran will rub it in their face as the continuation of Sunni vs Shiite rift
