Saudi Arabia came from behind to defeat Argentina in the World Cup on Tuesday in a major upset. Led by superstar Lionel Messi, Argentina are one of the favorites to win the tournament. Saudi Arabia are ranked 51st in the world. Messi gave Argentina a 10th-minute lead from the penalty spot before Saleh Al Sheri equalized for Saudi Arabia early in the second half and Salem Al Dawsari struck the winner in the 53rd minute. The Qatar tournament may be the last opportunity for the 35-year-old Messi to win soccer’s biggest prize. Messi is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time but has never lifted the World Cup. Argentina last won the World Cup in 1986 when they were led by Diego Maradona.
