Saudi Arabia put in a stunning second-half display and scored twice in a row after the break to stun Argentina 2-1 in one of the biggest upsets in FIFA World Cup history on Tuesday.

Lionel Messi gave Argentina the lead from a penalty kick after ten minutes, but Saudi Arabia rose up in an amazing eight minutes after the break.

Saleh Al-Shehri equalized in the 48th minute and five minutes later Salem Al-Dosari put Saudi Arabia ahead with a stunning shot into the far corner, igniting the home fans packed into Lusail Stadium.

With this result, Argentina will be in a critical position before facing Mexico in the next round, as Messi seeks to achieve the only title absent from his coffers.
