Saudi Arabia shock Messi’s Argentina at World Cup

Saudi Arabia stunned Lionel Messi’s Argentina on Tuesday, beating the two-time winners 2-1 in one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history.

Salem Al-Dawsari hit a stunning winner to sink the red-hot favorites, bringing the South American side’s 36-match unbeaten run to a shuddering halt. 

The win was fully deserved after Saudi Arabia came from behind after Saleh Al-Shehri canceled out an early Lionel Messi penalty. 

ALL OVER! THE IMPOSSIBLE IS NOT SAUDI! 

Saudi Arabia are the first ever Arab and Asian nation to beat Argentina at the FIFA WorldCup.
