Argentina won the World Cup two times. However, its latest tournament result has made World Cup history again for the wrong reason. Saudi Arabia upset Argentina, the third-ranked team in FIFA rankings. Also, they were among the favorites to win the tournament this year.
Argentina lost the match 2-1, even with Lionel Messi in the lineup. According to the South Korea World Cup squad update, all pre-match talks were about Messi. However, although he scored the game’s first goal, the team allowed Saudi Arabia to achieve two goals in the second half.
Al Dawsari’s fantastic goal from a distance and the ensuing acrobatic celebration will go down in World Cup history as one of the “I was there” moments for those who watched.
Saudi Arabia Upset Argentina in Group Match
Football betting Korea experts claims that the 1950 USA triumph against England, in which the American team had a 9.5 percent probability of winning, was the previous most unexpected World Cup victory.
The Green Falcons now hold the top rank because Tuesday’s Saudi Arabian possibility of winning was predicted at 8.7%.
As a result, according to those who bet on football, it is now the biggest upset in World Cup history. The victories by Senegal over France in 2002 and Cameroon over Argentina in 1990 were other big upsets in World cup history.
