It was a dream of football fans around the world that Argentina lifted the FIFA World Cup, especially for Lionel Messi. Well, the dream was achieved after they defeated France in the penalties of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Final. Before that, in their World Cup’s first group stage match, they lost against Saudi Arabia by 2-1. But why am I talking about it? The reason is that if we take a look at the Argentina National Football Team last 51 games, this was the only defeat.
Yes! The team has been unbeaten 50 times in their last 51 games, which includes their historic run in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Leaving their defeat against Saudi Arabia in the World Cup group stage match, their last defeat came against Brazil in the 2019 Copa America semi-finals.
Since then, most of the matches have ended on their side, and some have ended in a draw, with just one defeat since 2019. Well, in those 51 matches, we have some amazing stats for you.
