Argentina were on the end of one of the most shocking World Cup upsets on Tuesday when they lost 2-1 to Saudi Arabia. Despite taking the lead within 10 minutes thanks to Lionel Messi’s penalty, Scaloni’s men were unable to score again, and conceded two goals in five second-half minutes before going on to lose their opening game in the tournament for the first time since 1990.

”It is difficult to understand because in 4-5 minutes, they scored both goals,” Scaloni told reporters. “I think they were the only shots on goal. There is no other choice but to get up. We don’t have to analyse more than that. It’s a sad day but head up and keep going. The first half was all ours.
At halftime, we said that the situation was strange. They are all in pain but wanting to turn the situation around. It’s about winning the following games and that’s where we’re at.”NYSC portal
Messi and his teammates will be rueing their missed chances. In the first half alone he and Lauturo Martinez had three goals disallowed between them, and in the second 45, heroics from Saudi Arabia’s goalkeeper, Mohammed Alowais ensured that his nation completed a historic win.JAMB portal
