Qatar’s LUSAIL — By defeating Lionel Messi’s Argentina 2-1 on Tuesday, Saudi Arabia pulled off one of the biggest World Cup upsets ever.

It brought back memories of Cameroon’s 1-0 victory over an Argentina squad captained by Diego Maradona in the opening match of the 1990 Fifa World Cup as Messi’s quest for the one major championship that has eluded him got off to a frightening start.

The Saudis achieved their largest victory in the second half thanks to goals from Saleh Alshehri and Salem Aldawsari within a five-minute span. To put Argentina ahead in the 10th minute, Messi converted a penalty.

This is on par with startling outcomes like Senegal defeating the reigning champion France 1-0 in the tournament opening in 2002 and the United States shocking England by the same margin in 1950.
