Without any doubt, Messi's Argentina are the highly ranked country going to this world cup, with the possibility of pushing aside other top nations like Brazil, France, and England. Argentina played Saudi Arabia today to begin their camp, and as expected, Lionel Messi scored the very first goal in the match, but unfortunately, the other three goals he scored were ruled out because, per the referee, they were all offside goals. What is actually an offside goal?
Out of nowhere, Saleh Al-Shehri scored from the far end to equalize, and astoundingly, just after five minutes, Salem Al-Dawsari gave Saudi Arabia their win, which was the last goal for the match. Did you know that since September 21, this is the first time the Saudi Arabian national team has scored more than one goal in a match? Lionel Messi's goals have made him the first Argentine player to score in four straight World Cup tournaments. Ever since this edition or the world cup kicked off on November 20, 2022, five matches have been played so far with In these five World Cup games so far, there have been a minimum of 72 additional minutes, with three games crossing the 100+minute mark. Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia has ended Argentina's 36 unbeaten run record after today's game.
Not a good start for the Argentine national team, but do you think they can actually win the World Cup this time since this will be Messi's last World Cup?
