FIFA WORLD CUP 2022: 5-minute mistake and Argentina’s woes are over


Argentina lost after taking the lead

The 2022 World Cup will be known for the biggest upset in football history. Cup contenders Argentina lost in the first match. Saudi Arabia stunned the whole world by defeating it 2-1. Argentina were leading 1–0 at halftime. People were speculating whether Saudi Arabia would lose by one goal, two goals or by how many goals. But after halftime, a miracle happened that no one expected. After the break, the Saudi team came on the field in a completely changed style. He won the match by scoring two goals. The 51st ranked team defeated the No. 3 team in the world.

Saudi Arabia defeated Argentina who were undefeated in the last 36 matches. Argentina’s luck was also against him in this match. He had a hold on the entire match. He kept 70 percent possession of the ball. Time and again he reached the Saudi goalpost but then his game would fall apart after that. Every shot by the Argentine players at the goalpost was stopped by the goalkeeper. Saudi Arabia’s goalkeeper Owais made a great save. Sometimes the shot was weak and sometimes its direction was wrong. If this is not a coincidence then what is? Saudi Arabia hit only three shots on goal, of which two were scored. While Argentina hit 8 shots on goal, out of which only one goal was found.

Remember that last moment of the match. After 90 minutes of play, injury time started. Argentina launched a vigorous attack. Saudi Arabia’s goalkeeper had rushed forward to save the ball. The goalpost was completely empty. Seeing this, defender Alamiri stood on the goal line. By then the ball got to the player of Argentina. He hit a powerful shot on goal but AlAmiri cleared the ball with a header. It was an easy chance to score. Not only this, 2 goals of Argentina were disallowed for being offside. The cases of both were very close. Today fate was also standing in his way like a wall.

This defeat of Argentina was a story of missed opportunities. It was shocking to see the No. 3 team in the world squander an opportunity like this. Saudi Arabia was able to keep only 30 percent of the ball in its possession. But he took advantage of limited opportunities. He scored 2 goals in only five minutes. Alsahri scored the first goal in the 47th minute to bring the team on par. Then in the 52nd minute, Al Dawsari scored the second goal to give the team a 2-1 lead. Argentina was taken aback by this unexpected counterattack by Saudi Arabia. He could not understand what had happened. After this, the game of Messi and his fellow players was shattered. Messi is considered one of the best footballers in the world. All the hopes of the team were pinned on him that maybe he would do some miracle. There was also 10 minutes of injury time. But he could not live up to his name.

Proud achievement of Asian football

This victory of Saudi Arabia is a proud achievement for Asian football. No one can forget the winning goal by Al Dawsari. This goal is a classic piece of football skill. He handled the ball at the right end of the box. Then by taking a 180-degree turn, he dodged three Argentine defenders and put the ball in the very corner of the goalpost to put his team ahead 2-1. This lead was maintained till the end. Thus Saudi Arabia achieved an improbable victory. Argentina’s last defeat came three years ago today. He was defeated by Brazil in May 2019. Since then he had not lost a single match. Argentina had reached Qatar with full preparation. But Saudi Arabia dropped him from the sky to the ground. In the 1990 World Cup, Argentina lost to Cameroon in the first match even though it was the world champion.
