1 min read

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.
