AFC wrote an article praising Saudi Arabia: defeating Argentina + ending the opponent’s unbeaten 36 games

December 28-AFC wrote an article about Saudi Arabia’s performance in the World Cup, praising Saudi Arabia’s victory over Argentina.
When the 2022 World Cup in Qatar ends, Saudi Arabia will smile even though it did not make it to the knockout stage. Lionel Messi has lifted the trophy, but Saudi Arabia was the last team to beat Argentina before winning the Hercules Cup for the third time and ended Argentina’s 36 games unbeaten.
Lionel Messi took the lead for Argentina shortly after the start of the match between Saudi Arabia and Argentina, and Saudi fans feared a repeat of the 5-0 defeat to Russia four years ago, but the result was unexpected. Renard’s team did not give in, scoring two goals in five minutes in the second half and keeping the score 2-1 to the end, achieving the greatest result in their history.
In the second game, Saudi Arabia lost 2-0 to Poland and lost 1-2 to Mexico in the last round. Despite the heartbreaking result, the Saudis showed their quality to the world. Renard concluded after the game: “We have done our best and will not forget the work we have done together. I am very proud to work with the team and the players.”
