Bahrain celebrates ‘the biggest upset in FIFA history’ as Saudi beat Argentina


The greatest upset at the very start of the tournament as title favourites Argentina go down 1-2 to 51-ranked Saudi Arabia in the Group C opener. This is a moment of pride and joy not just for Saudi Arabia but is being celebrated across the region especially here in Bahrain. We proudly stand alongside our Saudi brothers and sisters, salute the national team’s brilliance at the football world cup, and wish them all the best for the rest of the campaign.
