In the first round of Group C of the Qatar World Cup group match, Saudi Arabia overturned and defeated two-time champions Argentina after falling behind at the Lusail Stadium, creating one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history.

Saudi Arabia, ranked 51st in the world, could have conceded in the first half, with Argentina’s Lionel Messi opening the scoring with a penalty before Argentina were dismissed with three more goals.

But Saudi Arabia quickly reversed the situation in the first 10 minutes of the second half. Saleh Al-Shehri (Salem Al-Dawsari) and Salem Al-Dawsari (Salem Al-Dawsari) scored consecutively, causing the Saudi fans in the stands fall into a trap.

It is precisely because of such “surprise” results that the World Cup is so special. Because of this game, we are reminded of those classic unpopular results in World Cup history.
