WHAT A MATCH BY SAUDI ARABIA! Argentina and Messi were shocked at the start of the World Cup!

Saudi Arabia celebrated in an incredible match against Argentina at the start of the World Cup in Qatar with a score of 2:1!

Today we had real examples of why football is one of the most beautiful players in the world.

Before the start of the match, almost no chances were given to the Saudis, even their fans told Meridian Sport that they just wanted not to get upset.

However, they did something completely different.

Lionel Scaloni’s team got into the match better.

Attacks and chances followed, and it was only a matter of time before the first goal of the match would happen.

Argentina took the lead through a penalty awarded to them in the 10th minute of the match, the goal was scored by Messi for 1:0!


The “Gauchos” attacks continued until the end of the first half, but they had neither luck nor skill. The rival caught them in offside traps on several occasions, as evidenced by Lautaro Martinez’s two disallowed goals.

The first half ended with a score of 1:0 for Argentina.

During the second half, we saw a complete reversal of roles on the field.

The Argentines were a pale shadow of the team from the first period of the game, while the Saudis played great football and were rewarded for it.

After only three minutes of play in the second half, Al Buraikan ran a counterattack and masterfully scored to equalize!


As if that wasn’t enough, just five minutes later, Saudi Arabia totally beat Argentina and completely reversed the result.

Al-Dawsari did a great job in the penalty area and found a position to shoot and beat the Argentina goalkeeper for another one for a total shock in the stadium!

Scaloni made changes in the composition, but it did not change the situation on the field much.

The great hero of this match was Al-Owais, the Saudi goalkeeper who had several incredible interventions. Especially those after the kick of Tagliafico and Messi at the end of the match.

Unfortunately, the goalkeeper of Saudi Arabia was in the center of the action when, in the final minutes of the match, he knocked out his teammate with a brutal blow, who was immediately helped, because he lost consciousness. The left-back of the Saudis could not continue the match and was carried off the field on a stretcher.

Let us recall that a similar situation was seen in the match between Iran and England when the goalkeeper of Iran similarly injured himself and broke his nose.

By the end of the match, there were no more opportunities and Argentina failed at the very start of the World Cup in Qatar!
