Qatar World Cup Tournament: Argentina Suffers Shocking 2-1 Defeat To Saudi Arabia

It just may have been one of the most shocking days in Lionel Messi’s football career as the Argentine and his team suffered a loss to the Saudi team.

In what seems to be a remarkable comeback victory, Saudi Arabia bested Argentina, a team billed as one of the favourites coming into the Qatar tournament, 1-2 and hence their tournament started on the worst note possible.

Messi had scored a penalty goal in the first-half, but just minutes into the second half, Saudi Arabia scored a stunning equaliser through Saleh Al Shehri and then Salem Al Dawsari doubled the lead for his side, courtesy of a brilliant solo goal.



Thav Media had earlier reported that Lionel Messi’s doctor wished the Argentine team would lose all their matches in the group stage, his prayers may just yet be answered as this shocking loss could be the beginning of many more.

However, the outcome of the match which was played at the Lusail Iconic Stadium has left a lot of reactions from fans of football.
