Tuesday’s #FIFA World Cup Group C game saw #Saudi Arabia overcome #Argentina. Even though they were third in the FIFA rankings and had Lionel Messi on their side, 51st-ranked Saudi Arabia utterly caught Argentina off guard.
Argentina has just not lost in 36 games prior to this defeat to Saudi Arabia, and it hasn’t lost a game in which Messi had scored since 2009. The Green Falcons had to execute five minutes of pure brilliance in the second half to win the game.
Even though Argentina had three goals disallowed for offside in the first half before Messi converted the penalty in the 10th minute. A remarkable goal by Salem Al-Dawsari gave Saudi Arabia the lead after Saleh Al-Shehri had leveled the game three minutes into the second half. They displayed great defensive play, denying Argentina any extra opportunities as they easily won 2-1.
Argentina’s defeat shocked soccer fans all over the world, and a meme fest has ensued on social media in response. Some of the funniest memes are shown below:
