Argentina started their Qatar World Cup campaign on a low note as the sufered 2-1 loss in the hands of the Saudi Arabia.

Before the match, Argentina were considered as the favorite to lift the trophy having gone 35 matches without a lose. During that period Argentina were able to lift the Copa America trophy hence the reason for being rank among the favorite in this year's World Cup tournament.

With other countries like England and Netherlands who are also being considered as the favorites naming their strongest lineup in their previous matchs, Argentina manager decided to name some if his big namesin their first eleven.

His decision seemed to had started yielding fruit as Argentina took an early lead through a penalty which was converted by Lionel Messi. Argentina were also able to score three other goals within the first half. However all those three goals were ruled offside after the intervention of the VAR.

In the second half, Saudi Arabia came back fully charge and got their two quick fire goals within five minutes in the early hours of the first half.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane was not pleased by the role played by Juventus winger Angel Di Maria as he failed to track back winger Al-Dawsari for the second goal.

Argentina will now have to at least win their remaining two group stage matches in order to qualify for the knock out stages.
