World Cup 2022: Saudi Arabia Defeats Argentina 2-1 – A Shocking Result?

Saudi Arabia has defeated Argentina in their Group C opener of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

The Albiceleste got their first goal through a penalty kick from Lionel Messi in the 10th minute.

Another goal from Lionel Messi and two for Lautaro Martinez were ruled out for offside.

Saleh Al-Shehri got the equalizer for Saudi Arabia after he surged past Cristan Romero and clipped a left-footed shot into the far corner after 48 minutes of action.

The Saudis extended their lead in the 53rd minute when Salem Al-Dawsari spun round, swerved away from a defender and curled in a brilliant effort from the left edge of the area into the top-right corner.

Efforts by Argentina to get back into the game were not successful as Saudi Arabia goalkeeper; Mohamed Al-Owais made a series of saves from Nicolas Tagliafico, Messi and Julian Alvarez.

This is one of the most remarkable results in World Cup history for the Saudi Arabians—and a shocking result on the part of Argentina.
