Saudi Arabia shocked the world of football in their opening game at the FIFA World Cup against favorites, Argentina.
Argentina led the game going into the first half courtesy a goal from Lionel Messi from the penalty spot. Saudi Arabia came into the second half with a more spirited performance as they scored two goals to beat their South American opponents.
The half-time footage of the team was released on the official Twitter account of the Saudi Arabian national team. Herve Renard was seen in the video inspiring his players to show more urgency when they are at the goal post of the Argentines.
This is how you press? Messi is asking for the ball in the middle of the pitch and you stand still… Take your phone, you can take a picture with him if you want.
Saudi Arabia will hope they can replicate the same performance in their second group game against Poland.
