Argentina have lost their first match in the ongoing World Cup in Qatar to Saudi Arabia.
The oil rich middle east nation pulled off an extraordinary comeback over the star studded Argentine side to create one of the biggest shocks and greatest upset in world cup history.
Lionel Messi opened the scoring but La Albiceleste were stunned in the second half when the underdogs scored two goals in five minutes to take a shock 2-1 lead in Qatar. Saleh Alshehri levelled minutes after half-time before Salem Al-Dawsari’s smashed home an incredible strike from distance, with the Saudis holding on to claim a historic victory.
The South American nation tried to restore parity and possibly get a winning goal but the Saudis defended stoutly, thwarting wave and wave of the Argentine’s attack and goal threat.
