In what can be considered the first shock result of the Qatar 2022 World, the Saudi Arabia national team has managed to best Argentina with a 2-1 victory.
Messi’s penalty at the 10th minute set the South American team’s hopes high in the first half, with the Saudi team coming back with a vengeance in the second half with goals from Saleh Alshehri in the 48th minute and Salem Aldawsari in the 53rd.
During this game, Messi tied with Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo for amount of goals, with the two legends having scored 7 goals at the World Cup. Portugal will open their World Cup campaign with a match against Ghana on Thursday.
This shock result comes as a massive surprise with Argentina being amongst the favourites for Qatar 2022, especially with it potentially being Messi’s last World Cup.
