Argentina were on the receiving end of one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history in their Group C opener.
Despite taking the lead and having two more goals disallowed in the first half of their clash with Saudi Arabia, the side tipped by many to go all the way were overhauled in a frantic five-minute spell that saw the Saudis qualify and confirm the score twice. Incredible 2-1 win. This means that they will have to do everything they can to win the World Cup in Lionel Messi's last dance at the tournament.
And it won't be easy for them against Mexico, a well-known opponent in World Cup history. El Tri veteran goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa was thanked for a share of the points in their first match against Poland, as he saved a penalty from star striker Robert Lewandowski to preserve a 0-0 scoreline.
Although their attack is far from over as their main striker Raul Jimenez struggles for fitness and form, they will be hard to break down and a team that has been knocked out of the World Cup twice before them.
