Moscow, Deputy Head of the Saudi soccer federation Nawaf Al-Timyat expressed profound regret and apology for the supporters of the Saudi national soccer team for the humiliating defeat at the opening match against host Russia of the world football cup finals in Moscow yesterday.

In remarks following today's exercise, Al-Timyat said everybody shares the responsibility of defeat as is the case of victory.

He promised the public to spare no effort to show a different performance in the coming two matches against Uruguay and Egypt.

Without giving details, he said legal procedure will be taken against a TV channel for insulting the Saudi national team on air, a behavior he described as absolutely unacceptable.
