Saudi Arabia defeat Greece in friendly

Seville: Saudi Arabia warmed up for their FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 campaign with a 2-0 friendly win over Greece in Seville on Tuesday.

Coached by Argentinian Juan Antonio Pizzi, Saudi Arabia opened the scoring on 19 minutes thanks to Villarreal's Salem Al-Dossari, one of several Saudi players sent on loan to Spanish clubs in January.

Greek hopes of levelling were compounded when Dimitrios Giannoulis saw red two minutes before the interval.

And defeat was confirmed 10 minutes from regulation time when Mohamed Kanno hit Saudi Arabia's second.

Greece did not qualify for Russia 2018, where Saudi Arabia will have the honour of facing the hosts in the tournament opener on June 14.

Egypt and Uruguay also feature in Group A along with Saudi Arabia and Russia.
