Argentina vs Saudi Arabia FIFA World Cup 2022 Highlights: Lionel Messi’s Argentina Shocked As Saudi Arabia Win 2-1
Argentina, headed by Lionel Messi, crashed to an unexpected 1-2 loss against Saudi Arabia, and their tournament thus got off to the worst conceivable start.
Saleh Al Shehri’s remarkable equaliser for Saudi Arabia came just minutes into the second half, and Salem Al Dawsari’s superb solo goal increased their advantage. Lionel Messi scored the game’s first goal from the penalty spot earlier in the first half after VAR intervention gave Argentina a penalty against Saudi Arabia.
Offside flags have prevented many goals for Messi and Lautaro Martinez. Given that Argentina only had a 1-0 lead at the intermission, Saudi Arabia deserves praise for not allowing the match slip out of their hands.To ensure that they maintain their one-goal advantage, Saudi Arabia is risking their lives. Argentina is dissatisfied with the absence of obvious opportunities.
In the game’s closing seconds, more penalties were issued. Saudi Arabia even used Nawaf Al Abed as a stand-in. The injury time will begin in just a few minutes.
Lionel Messi has a chance to score from a straightforward free kick. However, his effort is merely average and completely off-course. On the other hand, one Saudi Arabian player received a warning for engaging in combative behaviour.
