Video released showing head coach of Saudi Arabia Herve Renard had a conversation with the players at half-time in the 2022 World Cup match against Argentina (2:1).
Renard screamed in the locker room, as he was dissatisfied with the game of the players against the star striker of the Argentines Lionel Messi:
“Messi receives the ball in midfield and you stand and watch. Take more phones and take a picture with him. Don’t you feel that we are capable of returning? Don’t you feel it? Argentines are weak! Guys, it’s the World Cup! Give it your all!”
Saudi Arabia was losing after the first half of the game (0:1), and in the second half they scored two goals in 5 minutes and won the match (2:1).
