  2. How Saudi Arabia’s win over Argentina was extremely positive from the standpoint of the Kingdom’s soft-power influence in the Arab world;
  3. Why the global event underscored rising clout of Gulf states on the international stage; and
  4. Why the first World Cup held in an Arab country will greatly contribute to future narratives about the region.
