Fortunately, Al-Shahrani received prompt medical treatment and was able to prove he was awake by giving a thumbs up while being stretched and replaced.

Play then resumed for the final minutes as Saudi Arabia saw their stunning triumph,

talkSPORT2 co-commentator David Connolly reacted: “His own goalkeeper is on his knees, he looks upset here about the injury he caused his team-mate.

“He has his head in his hands. It’s a knee to the jaw. It’s awful, absolutely awful…

“The good news is he’s on his feet, I think the keeper asked the referee why he didn’t stop the game earlier.

“It looks like a terrible facial injury.”

In the game itself, Argentina capitulated to the Asian nation – ranked 51st in the world.

Saudi Arabia are the second lowest ranked team in the tournament, but remarkably they made their opponents look ordinary in the second half.

The South Americans entered the break 1-0 through Lionel Messi’s 10th-minute penalty and were well ahead after having three goals ruled out for offside.

Only eight minutes after the restart they were behind.

It was a sensational victory for Saudi Arabia

Saleh Al-Shehri equalized in the 48th minute after his low left-footed shot crept past Emiliano Martinez in the bottom right corner.

And moments later, Salem Aldawsari’s hard-hitting shot proved too hot for Martinez as he sent the Saudi fans into a frenzy.

They then defended fiercely to secure the historic victory.
