Manchester United were in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to play Al-Hilal in a Testimonial Match on 21/1/2008 for Sami Al-Jaber, a legend of the club who was retiring from the team. The match took place at King Fahad Stadium and the atmosphere was awesome! Al-Hilal won the match 3-2 and Sami scored a goal.
Al-Hilal is widely regarded as being the most widely supported club in Saudi Arabia. Sami Al-Jaber received his first cap for the national football team in 1992 and as of June 13 2006 he has played 161 international matches and scored 44 goals.
Manchester United are the best team in the world!!
I had a great time in Riyadh.
Comments are welcome.
