Gaza residents were overjoyed at Saudi Arabia's shocking 2-1 victory over Argentina at the World Cup on Tuesday.

Palestinians in the enclave cheered from cafes, shared triumphant posts on social media and some people handed out sweets outside shops.

They are among the football fans around the Arab world who erupted in celebration after the stunning Saudi win. It was one of the biggest upsets in the tournament's history as Saudi Arabia is a team that had only ever won three World Cup matches in its history prior to Tuesday's game.
