    (CNN) — Saudi Arabia produced one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history Tuesday, beating Lionel Messi’s Argentina 2-1 in an astonishing Group C match. Argentina, ranked third in the world and unbeaten for three years, was among the favorites to win the tournament. Saudi Arabia was ranked 51st. All the pre-match talk focused on Messi, one of the greatest players ever, who is playing in what is likely to be his last World Cup. The Argentina captain scored an early penalty to put his side in the lead, but two second-half goals from Saleh Al-Shehri and Salem Al Dawsari turned the game on its head. Al Dawsari’s incredible winner from distance — and subsequent acrobatic celebration — will become one of the moments of this or any World Cup.

However, some supporters on Twitter jokingly believe the defeat could be part of a masterplan from La Albiceleste.

    FOOTBALL fans are all saying the same thing after a new statue of Diego Maradona was unveiled in Spain. The dodgy design was revealed ahead of the COTIF final in the Spanish town of L'Alcudia. 5Football officials posed with an attempt at Diego Maradona's likeness 5The artwork didn't quite match the real thingCredit: AP With Argentina's Under-20s in action, the country's FA president Claudio Tapia was in town to unveil the new Maradona tribute. Tapia beamed as he posed for photos next to the work, designed by Spanish artist Rafa Ferri. But fans have been quick to slate the artwork online, likening it from Sylvester Stallone to Bruce Lee. One social media user wrote: "Have respect for Diego!" While a second joked: "Oops Diego melted." A third tweeted: "Hahahaha what is that." And another questioned: "Nobody saw that lack of respect before presenting it?" The statue drew comparisons with other botched works from down the years.

    MADRID (AP) — Lionel Messi’s Argentina trained in front of 15,000 fans at the stadium of Athletic Bilbao in northern Spain on Saturday as it prepares to play Italy in London in a clash of the South American and European champions. Argentina trained his week behind closed doors at Athletic’s training grounds outside the city. The tickets to watch Argentina train cost 12 euros ($12.80) for the general public and 10 euros ($10.70) for Athletic club members. Argentina will play Italy on Wednesday at Wembley Stadium in a showdown between the CONMEBOL and UEFA champions. That match, called the “Finalissima,” will be the third time the two champions of the world’s most powerful soccer confederations face off in official competition. On the other two occasions, France beat Uruguay in 1985 and Argentina beat Denmark in 1993. Argentina won the 2021 Copa América after beating Brazil 1-0 in the final. Italy beat England on penalties for the European championship last year. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    Soccer fans will have the opportunity to purchase the ‘Hand of God’ Diego Maradona Jersey from the controversial win over England in the 1986 World Cup.  No one will ever forget the 1986 World Cup matchup between Argentina and England. In dramatic fashion, Argentina came out with a 2-1 win thanks to Diego Maradona, but one of his goals will never be forgotten. Remember the goal he clearly scored with his hand instead of his head like the refs thought? There was no VAR back in the 80s to rule that one out. Argentina won that match and ended up winning the World Cup Final as well. Now, if you’ve got $5 million around, you can buy that Maradona jersey from the win over England. England fans still aren’t over the loss to Argentina in 1986Sotheby’s will be hosting an online auction on April 20 and there’s going to be interest in this jersey from all over the world.

    Diego Maradona’s first competitive match as coach of Argentina was a World Cup qualifier at home to Venezuela. Lionel Messi scored a goal of such genius that Maradona thought that everyone in the stadium should have been forced to leave and buy another ticket to get back in. 3Lionel Messi may have played his last game on Argentinian soilCredit: AFP Soon it will not be possible to buy a ticket to watch Messi’s magic - especially for an Argentine audience. Last Friday he was on target again against Venezuela as Argentina strolled to a 3-0 win over Venezuela. There was a party at the final whistle - perhaps tinged with sadness. Messi himself said that he would rethink a number of things after the World Cup. Argentina are unlikely to play at home before Qatar. They have a game lined up against Italy in London in June’s FIFA dates. They may even have to go to Australia to play the World Cup qualifier against Brazil that was abandoned back last year. There seems little chance of bringing all their players...
    ARGENTINA produce 650 Lionel Messi shirts every time there is an international break. That's because everyone is so eager to get a hold of the jersey of arguably the greatest player of all time. 1Martinez has revealed how many Messi shirts Argentina produce each international breakCredit: Getty From players to staff to sponsors there is no shortage of interest and Messi would be leaving a lot of people disappointed if he only dished out his match-worn shirt. And Argentina team-mate, Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez, was curious about how many shirts exactly were made. Martinez said on Amazon Prime Video: "One day I asked how many Messi shirts they have to make per game and they told me that between 200 and 300 for all the people who ask for them. "We played two internationals and they made 650 Messi shirts ready to wear.

    ARGENTINA fans have launched a bizarre campaign to take Diego Maradona’s heart to the World Cup. It would involve removing the soccer legend’s organ from a police lab so it could travel with the team. 1Maradona led Argentina to the World Cup in 1986Credit: Getty Advertising agency boss Javier Mentasti outlined the idea on an Argentine radio station. He said: "I’m sure it’s what Diego would have wanted. If we could ask him, he’d say: 'Do it.' "It could go on the team bus, to the players’ hotel. "I can imagine a procession the day the team leaves for Qatar with people accompanying the bus and the convoy massing at the airport before the players take off."

    MANCHESTER UNITED starlet Alejandro Garnacho has been called up to the Argentina senior team. The 17-tear-old is set to team up with Lionel Messi, Paulo Dybala and Lautaro Martinez for matches against Venezuela and Ecuador. 1Alejandro Garnacho highlighted his potential with a brilliant solo goal against Everton under-18s last monthCredit: Getty But Garnacho was born in Madrid and has represented Spain at youth level, but looks set to pick Argentina instead. He qualifies for Lionel Scaloni's side through his mother, who is from Argentina. Scaloni has pipped Spain to the player by calling him up early - recognition that he has a bright future ahead of him. That is encouraging news to United fans who have had little to cheer about this season. Garanacho is an exciting winger who possesses blistering space, which he demonstrated in a magnificent solo goal against Everton under-18s last month. The Red Devils fought off interest from Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund to sign the wonderkid from Atletico Madrid, which underlines the potential he has.

    Mexico is not South America. It is in a different hemisphere.  Buenos Aires and Mexico City are further apart than London and Mumbai. But there is a South American touch to the scenes of savagery in the Mexican league on Saturday, when the match between Queretaro and Atlas was suspended amid ferocious battles between rival fans which left many wounded, and, according to reports, some deaths. 3Fan violence marred the Mexican league match between Queretaro and AtlasCredit: Getty Images - Getty There is a strong influence from the North, as well. As Tim Marshall explains in his masterful ‘Prisoners of Geography,’ perhaps Mexico’s biggest problem comes from its role in “satisfying the Americans’ voracious appetite for drugs.” Since the USA clamped down on the Colombian cartels, more drugs have been moved through Mexico, corrupting almost everything in their path. The Mexican cartels are often better armed than law enforcement - not a recipe for social peace. As Marshall concludes, “without drugs the country would be even poorer than it is…. with drugs it is even more violent than it would...
