Hats off to the Al-Suqour Al-Akhdhar (The Green Falcons) of Saudi Arabia. They came with a gameplan against Argentina and executed to perfection. Their back line drew Argentina offsides many times and took away 3 goals in the 1st half. In the 2nd half, the Green Falcons came out with aggression and pressured Argentina from the jump getting 2 quick goals. Valiant effort indeed.
Perhaps a bigger story is Messi and his World Cup woes. Arguably the best player of all time is still missing a World Cup win on his exceptional resume. In the hobby, Messi cards are still hot, but what would happen to their value if Argentina can't bounce back from this historic upset? With Mexico and Poland drawing in their match, the group is still up for grabs. Who will advance to the elimination round and can the Green Falcons continue their cinderella story?
