WHAT HAPPENED? Messi and Argentina fell victim to one of the most unexpected results in World Cup history as they lost 2-1 to Saudi Arabia in their Group C encounter. Ex-Argentina international Banega currently plays for Saudi Arabian team Al-Shabab, as do many Saudi players. Banega knew how happy they were with the result and luckily he didn't look too frustrated with them!

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Saudi Arabia had never won their opening game of a World Cup before, while Argentina entered as a contender to win the whole tournament. The result sees Group C thrown wide open, with Mexico and Poland now even more hopeful they can finish ahead of Lionel Messi and Co.
