The Saudi national team achieved a historic win after overcoming its Argentine counterpart, with two goals to one, in the opening match for the two teams in Group C of the Qatar World Cup, which will be held from November 20 to December 18.

Although the Argentine national team advanced in the first half, and 3 Tango goals were canceled due to offside, Saleh Al-Shehri managed to equalize at the start of the second half, before Salem Al-Dosari added the second goal in a wonderful way against Martinez, the Argentine goalkeeper.

This win is the first inaugural victory for Saudi Arabia in its sixth appearance in the World Cup, as Al-Akhdar has never won in its first match.

Saudi Arabia also succeeded in being the first Asian team to score more than one goal against Argentina in the history of the World Cup. Messi, Maradona, and Batistuta had never scored two goals in their history against a team from the yellow continent.
