The first shock result of the Qatar World Cup occurred today after one of the favorites, Argentina experienced an unbelievably resilient Saudi Arabian team, that were able to pull up one of the biggest upsets in world football.
Argentina first scored in the first half via a penalty through Leonard Messi to make the scores 1-0.
Argentina had two goals disallowed still in the first half by Leonard Messi and Lautaro Martinez. At that point, the game looked like an easy win for Argentina.
The second half was a different ball game.
Two quick goals by Saudia Arabia from Saleh Al-Sheri (48min) and Salem Aldawsari (53min) in this half proved the decider.
Unbelievable scenes around the stadium when the referee blew the final whistle:
