This Defeat Was A Wake-Up Call For The Navy: Argentina In The 1990s: After the defeat in the first match of the World Cup in Qatar, there is a lot of criticism towards Argentina. Team Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia 2-1.

Despite having many opportunities to score, Messi could not advance in the face of the Saudi attack.


In the 10th minute, Messi scored a penalty in favor of Argentina for fouling Paredes in Saudi’s Al Bulayahi box.

Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia for the first time in history. Many fans of Saudi came out praising Saudi for winning the coup.

Football fans are worried about how the World Cup favorites Argentina will progress if they can fight and win even against Kunjan’s team.

But the history of Argentina reaching the finals of the World Cup two decades ago is repeating itself here, and in the 1990 World Cup when Argentina reached the finals, they started losing the first game.

Team Argentina started by losing 1-0 to Cameroon that day. After losing to Cameroon, Argentina never looked back.

Argentina defeated the Soviet Union 2-0 in the second match and entered the next round with a draw in the third match.

That fighting spirit then ended in the finals. It is estimated that this time too, there are many similarities with the match held in the 90 World Cup. If it was a weak Cameroon that brought down the Blue Army then, only this time it is in the form of Saudi Arabia.

In recent world tournaments, Argentina’s style has been to rise to form with each passing match. The same thing happened in 2014. Argentina, who won by small margins, was seen to be in good form at a fast pace. The general view is that this defeat is likely to be a wake-up call for Argentina.

Messi scored a penalty in the first half to give Argentina the lead, but Salih Alshehri equalized in the 48th minute. Within five minutes, Salem Aldawsari scored a stunning goal to give Saudi a lead.

Later, we saw the Saudis who were confined to defense only. Muhammad Al Owaisi, who became Saudi’s big wall by knocking down Argentina’s every goal attempt and holding his hand, attracted public attention. This is the second World Cup for Owais who is the star of the game with crucial saves.

Owais also played in the Russian World Cup. Owais started playing for the Saudi club Al Shabaab 10 years ago. He was a member of the team that won the King Cup and the Saudi Super Cup.
