Sunday Oliseh, a technical specialist for FIFA, praised Saudi Arabia after the Falcons’ incredible 2-1 triumph over Argentina on Tuesday.
At the Lusail Iconic Stadium, the Asians defeated the two-time champions in one of the most spectacular upsets in World Cup history.
Following a contentious penalty kick, Lionel Messi gave Argentina the lead from the spot after 10 minutes.
Three minutes after the half, Saudi Arabia’s Saleh Al-Shehri brought the score even.
The Saudis were energized by the goal and pushed forward, scoring the game-winning goal in the 53rd minute through Salem Al-Dawsari.
“Incredible, yet true, and completely deserved! Argentina was outmatched against Saudi Arabia tactically, physically, and technically. When in possession, clairvoyant, agile, and little. For me? I’ve never seen a better Saudi Arabian team than this one! Oliseh posted anything on Twitter.
