World Cup: Saudi Arabia shock Messi-led Argentina 2-1


The Lionel Messi-led Argentina national team has been beaten by a lowly-rated Saudi Arabia.

Lionel Messi put Argentina ahead from the spot in the 10th minute and Lisandro Martinez thought he had scored the second 19 minutes later but was disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

The Saudis returned to the second half with a different mindset with Saleh Al-Shekri levelling the scoreline in the 49th minutes and Dawsari secured the victory for Arabians ahead in 53rd minute.

Argentina is one of the teams widely tipped to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
