FIFA 2022: History of failing opening matches in FIFA 

This loss of Argentina is a big issue to be concerned about as in the history of FIFA, it has never been that easy for a team to win the World Cup after the defeat in the opening match.

Lionel Messi and his team might not have any encouraging signs, but they are still worthy of being one of those to change the history of FIFA and to be recognized as the greatest of all time.

FIFA World Cup of 2010

The only team to win the FIFA World Cup after losing their first opening match was during the cup of 2010 when Messi's then-clubmates as Iniesta, Xavi, David Villa, Pedro, Sergio Busquets, and now-clubmate Sergio Ramos won the FIFA World Cup despite losing their own match for Spain against Switzerland at the 2010 World Cup.

This happened only once when the Iker Casillas team won the FIFA World Cup after facing the tragic shock of early defeat. The 1-0 defeat for Spain at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on 16th June 2010 against Switzerland saw them give a reaction in the later stage.

FIFA 2022: What now for Argentina?

The two-time champions will play Mexico at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Lusail, the same venue where they lost to Saudi Arabia. The contest will take place on Saturday (November 26). 

Lionel Messi and the team will then shift their base to Doha at Stadium 974, where they will drop curtains on their group stage campaign against Poland.

The match will have bearings on the qualification scenarios and will take place on Wednesday (30 November).
