Argentina’s path to World Cup semifinals

Even though the Argentina squad shockingly lost to Saudi Arabia in its first match of the 2022 World Cup, they were able to bounce back with two victories to win Group C. From there, Lionel Messi and company avoided a late surge from Australia to win 2-1 in the round of 16.

In the quarterfinals, Argentina let Netherlands score a pair of late goals to force extra time. However, the Argentinians ultimately prevailed 4-3 on penalties, earning a date with Croatia in the semifinals.
