Argentina 1 – 2 Saudi Arabia


There are shock results, and then there’s this. Officially the biggest upset in the history of the World Cup; bigger than this, this and this. And it’s not even a fluke result. The Saudis were more than good for their win, and Argentina were absolutely dreadful for the majority of the second half. A number 10 captain taking an early penalty to put the favourites in front can’t help give you flashbacks to England v Iceland in Euro 2016. This was like that, but times a million. Tipped to win the tournament, the Argentines were. Cue massive shakes of heads from sheepish pundits all around the globe.

Edit: Not sure if you read the news or anything, but Argentina only went on to win the thing, making this reult even more of a shock. If that’s possible.
