Moscow, June 26 (IANS) The Saudi Arabia national football team on Tuesday renewed the contract of head coach Juan Antonio Pizzi after their 2-1 win over Egypt which helped them grab their only win so far at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Saudi Arabia squeezed a consolation win against Mohamed Salah’s Egypt after what was a fairly underwhelming campaign that started with a 0-5 defeat to hosts Russia, reports Efe.

In a statement, the Saudi soccer federation said Pizzi, an Argentina-born former player who represented Spain internationally, would stay on until the end of the Asia Cup in 2019.
