    Three players will be punished.

    "Members of Saudi Arabia’s national football team will face a disciplinary penalty for their crushing defeat by Russia in the 2018 FIFA World Cup opener, the Al-Youm Assabaa newspaper quoted the Saudi Football Federation chief Adel Ezzat as saying.

    “We are very disappointed by the defeat,” Ezzat was quoted as saying. “This result is totally unsatisfactory, because it does not reflect the true level of our preparedness.”

    “Several players will face a penalty – goalkeeper Abdullah Al-Mayouf, striker Mohammad Al-Sahlawi and defender Omar Hawsawi,” he added."

    It's why people like the Saudis shouldn't bother with sport at all. They just don't get it.

    They were beaten by a better team. If they do punish those players then FIFA should kick them out of World football until they mature.

    The next World Cup hosts will likely field a completely imported team.

    Qatar?

    They are too lazy to put in the effort to be world class athletes.
    Same goes for Saudis
