WHAT HAPPENED? Saudi Arabia pulled off one of the shocks of the World Cup as they beat Argentina 2-1 in their opening group game. Thousands of their fans attended the game in their neighbouring country of Qatar and they certainly enjoyed themselves. As they left the stadium some could be seen copying Ronaldo's iconic 'siuuu' celebration as they revelled in victory over his arch-rival Messi.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Two goals in five minutes ensured Saudi Arabia took home all three points in their tournament opener. It was the first time the country had ever won their opening game at a World Cup and a result that saw them end Argentina's 36-game unbeaten run.
