Saudi Arabia’s victory over Argentina has to rank among the biggest upsets in World Cup history. The news of yesterday’s unexpected triumph made headlines throughout the world. All of the best sports figures and celebrities were discussing the game. Jake Paul, who recently lauded the Saudi striker in a tweet, concurred.
Yesterday, magic occurred in Qatar’s Lusail Stadium. Saudi Arabia has just created history by defeating one of the world’s finest football nations. Thus, it was a hot topic on Twitter at the moment because of how unpredictable the outcome really was. Everyone was surprised by the outcome of the match, but they were also appreciative of what the Arabian country had accomplished. The YouTuber-turned-boxer didn’t back down either, eventually sharing his thoughts on the matter.
What a victory for Saudi Arabia and what a goal by Salem Al-Dawsari!!!
Congrats to all the welcoming people I met on my recent visit there and to the country as a whole. Wow.

In a recent tweet, the problem child applauded and thanked the Saudi Arabian football team, but he especially named Salem Al-Dawsari for his magnificent match-winning goal. While Saudi Arabian goalkeeper Mohammed Alowais was the match’s hero, stopping many goals from keeping the score level. On Tuesday, he had to deal with one of the most difficult challenges an international goalie used to face: preventing an Argentine attack spearheaded by Lionel Messi, Angel De Maria, and Lautaro Martinez.
The social media personality is rooting for his country, the United States, in this World Cup. However, witnessing Lionel Messi’s Argentina defeat to Saudi Arabia surprised him as he later stated on Twitter, “What a victory for Saudi Arabia and what a goal by Salem Al-Dawsari!!! Congrats to all the welcoming people I met on my recent visit there and to the country as a whole. Wow.”

Football fans all over the world are stunned. Meanwhile, some supporters are mocking Messi’s team for how unlucky they are in the World Cup event, while others are predicting what the tournament would look like without one of the giants. In any case, Argentina still has two games left in their group stage, both of which they may win. Many have compared this defeat to Spain’s 2010 World Cup campaign, in which they also lost their first match against Switzerland but went on to win the tournament.
