    Don't worry brother. Even Spain lost to Switzerland in 2010 group stage.
    If England doesn't qualify for Final, I wish Argentina would win the World Cup.

    Congratulations Saudi Arabia. They had a good game plan and almost all Argentina forward line fall into offside trap.  As far as I know, this is one of biggest upset in World cup history.

    Defeating an inform Argentina against all odds is an excellent victory. Trailing by a goal and scored two fantastic goals. Also, Argentina has been awarded free kicks without legitimate fouls.

    Interesting trivia!

    Argentina and 6 FIFA World Cup opening game losses: How Albiceleste fared the last 5 times

    Here is how Argentina has fared the five other times it started a World Cup with a defeat.

    1990 World Cup

    Reigning champion Argentina fell to Cameroon in its very first game in the 1990 World Cup. Francois Omam-Biyik gave the African side a shock win against Diego Maradona’s side with a 67th minute goal.

    Argentina bounced back from the defeat and eventually made it to its second consecutive final against Germany, but lost 0-1.

    1982 World Cup

    Argentina entered the tournament as the defending champion, only to stumble at the first hurdle. A disappointing tournament for Albicelestes began with a 1-0 reversal to Belgium, with Erwin Vandenbergh scoring for the Europeans.

    Argentina though made it out of the group, only to fall in the second round after losing to Italy and Brazil.

    1974 World Cup

    After failing to qualify for the 1970 edition, Argentina’s 1974 campaign began on the wrong foot. Poland, which will take on Argentina later in Qatar, defeated the South American side 3-2, with Grzegorz Lato starring with an early brace.

    Argentina made it out of the group, but crashed out in the second stage after being thrashed by Netherlands and Brazil.

    1958 World Cup

    Argentina returned to the World Cup stage after 24 years only to lose 1-3 to West Germany in its first game. Helmut Rahn starred for the eventual champion with a double. Argentina went on to exit in the group stage after a 6-1 humiliation at the hands of Czechoslovakia.

    1934 World Cup

    Argentina, finalist at the inaugural World Cup, travelled all the way to Italy for the 1934 World Cup, only to sink at the very first challenge. The knockout format of the tournament meant the 3-2 defeat to Sweden was the end of the road for the Argentinians.

    What an upset. Argentina scored 4 goals in first half but 3 ruled offside. Feeling good as an asian but an an Argentine fan this is disastrous result
    Actually Saudi set a great offside trap. Argentina were constantly trapped offside throughout the game 
  • Japan beat Germany 2-1. Japan looks to be Germany's bane. What a result
