Group E

Germany vs Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia never came to the World Cup finals with any hope of winning the trophy, but they couldn't have expected to be thrashed 0-8 by Germany either.

Cameroon vs Saudi Arabia
Samuel Eto'o finally broke the deadlock in the 65th minute, by getting onto a long pass from Geremi. Saudi Arabia become the first team to be knocked out of the competition.

Saudi Arabia vs Ireland
As much as they tried, Saudi Arabia couldn't score a goal in the tournament.... but then neither could France.
