With Argentina, Mexico, Poland and Saudi Arabia put together in World Cup 2022 Group C, this is an intriguing group of teams with very different styles of play.
And the intrigue’s only increased with Saudi Arabia’s upset of Argentina. While Mexico and Poland battled to a 0-0 draw.
Can Lionel Messi and La Albiceleste get into the knockout rounds? Will Mexico and Poland push them all the way? As for Saudi Arabia, they eased through qualifying and have already delivered a shock at this World Cup?
Almost everybody would’ve expected Argentina will advance from this group (and possibly win the World Cup) while one of Mexico and Poland would join them in the last 16.
The opening game between El Tri and Robert Lewandowski’s Poland that once seemed vital in deciding who will advance to the last 16 now looks a bit less crucial.
