World Cup, Day 3

It’s day 3 of the World Cup: Teams in groups C and D play their first games of the tournament today (all times CLT):

Saudi Arabia are the surprise victors over heavy favorites Argentina: The Group C match ended 2-1 to our KSA neighbors shortly before we hit send on this afternoon’s issue. The New York Times is calling it “one of the greatest humiliations” in the history of the Argentinian national team. The favorites were 1-0 at halftime, with star Lionel Messi on good form — but the Saudis scored two goals within the first eight minutes of the second half and held on til the end, in what will surely go down as one of the most surprising World Cup match results yet.

On the pitch now: Denmark v Tunisia (3pm).

Still to play today: Mexico v Poland (6pm) and France v Australia (9pm).
