Saudi now has a great chance

Saudi Arabia has been placed in Group C of the current World Cup along with Argentina, Mexico and Poland. Now Saudi Arabia will face Mexico and Poland in the upcoming matches. If she performs well in these matches, she will reach the knockout round. At the same time, after the defeat, the pressure on the Argentine team has increased. Argentina’s team was invincible for the last 36 matches, so this streak was also broken. Italy has the record of not losing the maximum number of 37 matches, which Messi’s team could not break.
