Saudi Arabia made history on Tuesday morning after defeating Argentina 2-1 to record their first-ever win at the FIFA World Cup.
The Saudi national team today locked horns with the South American opponent in a Group C encounter of the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup being staged in Qatar.
In a game where Saudi Arabia was not given the slightest chance of victory, the national team shocked the entire world.
Today, head coach Herve Renard started a strong team and deployed a high press strategy full of overloads in key areas of the field to neutralise the threats of the Argentines.
While Saudi Arabia will give away a penalty kick just 10 minutes into the game, the team stayed resolute.
Lionel Messi converted the spot kick to give his national team the lead before the first-half break.
However, after recess, Saudi Arabia head coach Herve Renard gave new instructions to his players that caught the opponent napping.
With two quick goals from Saleh Al-Shehri and Salem Al-Dawsari in the 48th and 53rd minutes respectively, Saudi Arabia has cruised to a delightful 2-1 comeback win to go top of the Group C standings.
