audi Arabian soccer authorities urged Saudi revelers not to celebrate in the kingdom's streets if Saudi Arabia wins the Asian Cup final on Sunday against Iraq. Saudi Arabia's soccer federation chief, Prince Sultan bin Fahd, called on Saudis not to perform any kind of celebration in the Kingdom's streets. He said that, if the Saudi team wins, the fans should join festivities to be held in the cities' stadiums. Prince Sultan's call came to prevent a repeat of incidents and minor clashes with security forces that took place in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah, where supporters celebrated Saudi Arabia's semifinals victory over Japan on Thursday, leading to the arrest of several youths.
