World Cup viewers are begging for more Arabic commentary after listening to it over Saudi Arabia's winning goal against Argentina.
The nation ranked 55th in the world by FIFA stunned one of the favourites to win the tournament this morning (November 22) with a 2-1 victory. Lionel Messi had given Argentina the lead from the spot in the first half.
But Saleh Alshehri equalised shortly after the break before Salem Aldawsari scored a screamer which turned out to be the winner. It was a World Cup moment for the ages as it was – but the Arabic commentary made it even better.

"Wish I spoke Arabic but you know he’s talking that GOOD s***," commented one. One pleaded: "I want Arab commentary on every game. See how passionate they are for Harrogate Vs Swindon."
