New Delhi [India]: Argentina started their FIFA World Cup 2022 campaign on a disastrous note as Saudi Arabia defeated Lionel Messi’s goal with two goals in the second half to register a historic 2-1 victory in Group C.
Luis Figo shared his thoughts on Saudi Arabia’s performance and said, “I think this is what football is about, sport is about. In the beginning, nobody could say that this result would happen. But watching the game, it was not a surprise at all. I think we have to congratulate Saudi Arabia for the excellent work. All the players were very committed with the idea of the coach. They were very physical and surprised me that they could hold the game at this level. I am really surprised and just want to congratulate the spirit.”
Sol Campbell also shared his thoughts on the Argentina loss and said, ” You always want to win the first game and get into the table with a few points and a nice little cushion. Now, there is not much manoeuvre, they can’t afford to slip up again. Hats off to Saudi Arabia, what an incredible result. Every single ball, they wanted it more.”
Argentina will face Mexico on Saturday in their next group C match, while Saudi Arabia will take on Poland
