Defeat first Saudi Arabia on his debut in Qatar World Cup It was a blow to the illusion that the Argentine national team had. The initial games are always complicated. But this time Lionel Scaloni’s team got off to a good start in the first half, with two interventions by the VAR, one to give Paredes the penalty converted by Messi and then to annul a goal scored by Lautaro Martínez, who then scored another it was overruled by the linesman.
However, in the second half, the team fell asleep and it appeared that Messi was not entirely well, nor was Romero, who failed to perform and had to be replaced by Lisandro Martínez. So, the team was deflation against a tough, very tough rival. Saudi Arabia scored a lot, received several yellow cards but their players interrupted the match, scored two goals and defended tooth and nail.
The Argentine national team didn’t find the way, Paredes didn’t do well, they had to replace him. It was a very hard blow because a debut defeat costs a lot. He now it’s up to Mexico and then to Poland and it’s time to claim. The team received a very strong and unexpected blow. A blow to the illusion.
