This morning as the sun was rising a major upset was taking place on the other side of the world.
Ranked 51st in the world, Saudi Arabia could have been done and dusted in the first half as Lionel Messi opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Argentina had three goals ruled out for offside.
But the Green Falcons flipped the game on its head in a stunning 10-minute period after half-time, Saleh Al-Shehri levelling with a low effort and Salem Al Dawsari firing them ahead to spark pandemonium in the stands.
Let's check in with our foreign correspondent to see how that went:
Saudi Arabia's win is all the more shocking considering Argentina (a big time favorite) was coasting off a 36-game win streak including the 2021 Copa America. This is probably soccer legend Messi's last rodeo in the World Cup, and now their chances of taking it all are nearly impossible… (but so was Saudi Arabia beating Argentina, so you never know). They'll play Mexico next, and Saudi Arabia will go up against Poland.
And as Big Cat notes, Argentina/Messi's loss isn't too bad since most of us over here missed it. #suspicious
