This was how the perfect opportunity arose for Ferraresi who was located in the right place and with excellent definition, he did not hesitate to send the ball back into the net and record the first goal for Venezuela.
The Creole team was firm against a rival already qualified for the World Cup, a group that showed hunger for goals and eager to repeat the taste of victory.
Those led by José Néstor Pékerman stood firm to keep the score in their favor, in fact the criollos did not hesitate to generate another attack for the 68th minute, with a center by José Martínez directed at Salomón Rondón, unfortunately the opponent deflected the shot that it would become the second goal for Venezuela.
In this way, Saudi Arabia falls for the second time in a row by the minimum, a team that will have to prepare if it wants to reach a decisive stage in the World Cup.
