FIFA World Cup Shocker: Saudi Arabia crush mighty Argentina 2-1

Saudi Arabia shocked the football world Tuesday (22) when they defeated 2-time world champions Argentina 2-1 in the FIFA World Cup at Lusail Stadium, Qatar.

Saudi Arabia had never beaten Argentina before and the South Americans looked set to extend their domination when star Lionel Messi opened the scoring when he converted a penalty in the 10th minute of the game.

Argentina almost made it 2-0 in the 27th minute. However, an attacking player was found offside and the goal by Lautaro Martines was disallowed. At half-time Argentina led 1-0.

The Saudis came back strong in the second half and equalized with a Saleh Alshehri goal in the 48th minute.

Salem Aldawsari then scored in the 53rd minute for Saudi Arabia to take the lead in the game and held on until the end.
