Saudi Arabia, Qatar’s neighbor, stunned two-time champions Argentina 2-1 in the Group C match of the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar today.
Saleh Al-Sehri and Salem Al-Dawsari scored one goal each to give victory to Saudi Arabia.
Captain Lionel Messi scored the only goal for Argentina.
Messi scored a goal from the penalty in the 10th minute to give the lead to Argentina.
However, Saudi Arabia’s Saleh Al-sehri scored in the 48th minute to tie the game 1-1. Similarly, in the 53rd minute, Salem Al-Dawsari scored another goal for Saudi Arabia.
Argentina tried to find a way back into the game, but Saudi Arabia goalkeeper Mohamed Al-Owais made a series of saves from Nicolas Tagliafico, Messi, and Julian Alvarez to seal one of the most remarkable results in World Cup history.
