The French coach, Hervé Renard, the Saudi national team, untied the knot that stuck him in his career against the South American teams, after Al-Akhdar defeated Argentina with two goals to one in the first group C match in the 2022 World Cup.
The Saudi national team overturned its delay with a goal to an exciting victory over Argentina in the first matches of the fourth day of the 2022 World Cup, as Messi scored a goal in the tenth minute from a penalty kick, before Saleh Al-Shehri and Salem Al-Dosari responded at the 48th and 53rd minutes, respectively.
Renard, 54, coached the Morocco national team in the French coach’s first match against a South American national team in 2019, when he lost to coach Lionel Scaloni’s team with the goal of Angel Korea in the match that Tangiers hosted, before he met the Saudi national team with Paraguay in the same year, and the match ended in a negative draw.
And within the current World Cup trials, last June, the Saudi national team faced Colombia, and it ended with a goal in favor of the latter, before it received another loss four days later, with the same result, against Venezuela, while the last confrontations between Saudi Arabia and the Latin national team witnessed the result of a draw with Ecuador last September before the historic victory over Argentina on the day.
