Argentina largely dominated the opening game of Group C as expected, but will be disappointed to have gone into halftime with a one-goal margin against the aggressive Saudi Arabian high line. Martinez would have felt bad about his first strike being called down, but will be disappointed that he didn’t contain his run for the second.
Scaloni has plenty of attacking power on the bench if he wants to shake it up later in the match at Estadio Lusail, including Paulo Dybala, Julián Álvarez and Ángel Correa. Argentina, one of the World Cup favorites, also faces Mexico and Poland in the group stage, and will be eager to follow another favorite in England by winning big to kick off their campaign.
