In what could be his last FIFA tournament, Robert Lewandowski will want to shine.

Poland will be desperate to make it through the group stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup after managing just one win in the 2018 edition of the tournament. For the first time in their history, Poland have qualified for four successive major tournaments. They are placed in group C alongside mighty Argentina, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.

Excluding any major shocks from Saudi Arabia, the tournament's lowest-ranked nation bar one, Mexico and Argentina will be Poland's big rivals for progression from Group C. That sets up the opener against Mexico as a nail-biter.

Both teams will be desperate to get ahead before facing the formidable Lionel Messi and his cavalry of Argentinian superstars.  Czeslaw Michniewicz will be hopeful Poland can advance to the FIFA World Cup last 16 for the first time since 1986 as he has plenty of high-quality options in his squad.
