Saudi Arabia produced one of the stunning upsets in World Cup history today, November 22, by beating Argentina 2-1 in their Group C encounter at world cup competition taking place in Qatar.
At the Lusail Iconic Stadium today, Lionel Messi opened the scoring for Argentina from the penalty spot after 10 minutes play following a controversial VAR decision.
Saleh Al-Shehri levelled for Saudi Arabia just three minutes after the break.
The goal encouraged the Saudis to pour forward and they netted winning goal through Salem Al-Dawsari in the 53rd minute.
Al-Dawsari plucked the ball out from the sky and turned inside two Argentina defenders before curling his finish beyond the reach of Aston Villa defender Emiliano Martinez.
The result ended Argentina’s 36-game unbeaten run.
