Saudi Arabia won a spectacular comeback victory at the Lusail Iconic Stadium, causing one of the greatest surprises in World Cup history.
Argentina, led by Lionel Messi and on a 36-run undefeated streak, were seen as one of the tournament's favorites.
The 2022 World Cup had its first shock after 104 minutes of play. And it is a shock worthy of comparison to any upset in the competition's history of the world.
Saudi Arabia, who had only won one World Cup match before today, ended Argentina's 36-match unbeaten streak.
Their energy and work rate were uncomfortable throughout the game. Finishes by Al Shehri and Al Dawsari were outstanding, while Al Tambakti at the back was a colossus.
