Argentina stunned as Saudi Arabia win 2-1 in Group C

Who would have predicted this outcome? Argentina, the third-ranked team in FIFA rankings, with Lionel Messi in their lineup and regarded as tournament favourites, were absolutely startled by 51st-ranked Saudi Arabia. All it took for the Green Flacons to win was five minutes of second-half excellence. Argentina had three goals disallowed for offside in the first half before Messi scored the penalty in the 10th minute. Saleh Al-Shehri levelled the score three minutes into the second half before a stunning goal from Salem Al-Dawsari put Saudi ahead. They played excellent defence, denying Argentina any additional chances as they marched to a historic 2-1 victory.
