The FIFA World Cup 2022 has been the biggest talking point since its commencement and recently, Saudi Arabia pulled off the biggest upset of the World Cup so far after defeating tournament favourites Argentina 1-2. After the game, a group of Saudi Arabia fans performed Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo's infamous goal celebration, 'SIUUUU' in front of the Argentine fans.

Saudi Arabia came from a goal behind to defeat the 2021 Copa America champions after legendary forward Lionel Messi scored a penalty to open the scoring in the match.

The Argentine players and fans left the stadium in disappointment while the Saudi Arabia players and fans were on the cloud nine after the victory. While leaving the Lusail Stadium, a group of Saudi Arabia fans performed Lionel Messi's arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo's popular goal celebration, a video has gone viral on social media.

Watch the video here:

Argentina's loss against Saudi Arabia was one of the biggest upsets in the history of FIFA World Cup and that too while leading the game in early stages. Lionel Messi scored a penalty in 10th minute of the game to help his team end the first half with a goal lead. 

However, Saudi Arabia players entered the ground with different character as their forwards Saleh Al Shehri and Salem Al Dawsari each scored in a space of five minutes to lead Argentina before an hour mark on the clock.

Argentina are scheduled to face Mexico on Saturday night in their next FIFA World Cup 2022 group stage fixture before taking on the likes of Poland next week in their final group stage fixture.
