The Crown Prince also met with the President of the Saudi Football Association, the President and members of the Board of Directors of al-Hilal, and the technical and administrative staff of the football club.

SPA reported that the Saudi Crown Prince congratulated the officials and players of al-Hilal for their achievement, “pointing out the importance of continuing to exert more effort to raise the Kingdom’s name in the global forum.”

Last month, Nasser al-Dawsari scored the fastest goal ever in an Asian Champions League final on as al-Hilal won a record fourth continental crown with a 2-0 victory over South Korea’s Pohang Steelers in Riyadh.

Al-Dawsari’s 25-meter drive flew into the top corner of Lee Jun’s goal with 16 seconds on the clock to break Mohammad Kallon’s 16-year-old record and put the Saudis on track for a fourth title after successes in 1991, 2000 and 2019.
