How Lionel Messi and Argentina suffered their first defeat since World Cup triumph

Argentina’s 14-match unbeaten streak came to an end with a surprising 2-0 defeat to Uruguay in the 2026 World Cup qualifying campaign. Goals from Maxi Araujo and Darwin Nunez secured the victory for Uruguay. Despite Lionel Messi’s attempts, including a free-kick hitting the crossbar, Argentina couldn’t recover. The loss, their first since the 2022 World Cup defeat to Saudi Arabia, may have little impact on their standing as they still lead the group with 12 points from five matches. However, the defeat raises concerns about Argentina’s vulnerability, especially with a challenging match against Brazil on the horizon.
