And not just the outcome, too. This plucky punter predicted a 2-1 win for the Saudis at massive odds.

Lionel Messi put the 1/12 shots ahead early on with a goal from the penalty spot and many feared the worse for Saudi Arabia.

But a remarkable turnaround shortly after half time saw the outsiders grab the most unlikely of leads.

They managed to hold on too to secure an unbelievable three points — and secured a huge win for one punter.

William Hill reported a massive £1600 win after the 80/1 pick landed early today from a £20 stake.

As a result, Argentina have drifted out to 15/2 to win the competition, now behind Brazil (3/1), England (13/2) and France (7/1).

William Hill Spokesperson, Lee Phelps, said: “It was arguably one of the biggest shocks in World Cup history as Saudi Arabia beat Argentina and, amazingly, one punter not only predicted the Saudi victory but also got the scoreline right as well!

“The customer staked £20 on the 2-1 scoreline at a mighty 80/1 and it’s certainly been a good start to the World Cup for them.

“The shock loss has seen Argentina drift out to 15/2 to win the tournament, while they are out to 6/4 to win the group, having been odds-on at 2/5 prior to kick-off.”
