Hello and welcome to the live blog of the Poland vs Argentina, FIFA World Cup 2022 Group C match in Qatar.

Argentina responded and prevailed against Mexico after struggling in the first half of the FIFA World Cup 2022 group stage game, but there is always light at the end of the tunnel when you have Messi. Mexico’s strong defensive line made it difficult for Argentina to break through, but a moment from Messi restored optimism, and replacement Enzo Fernandez added a fantastic goal as Argentina garnered the three points.

Saudi Arabia might have qualified for the knockout stage with a win, but Poland was more highly motivated and won with two goals. Poland was decent overall and was cut open several times, but Szczesny’s penalty save preserved Poland in the game, and they now face Argentina, which will decide their progression to the next round.

Poland form (all competition): L-W-W-D-W

Argentina form (all competition): W-W-W-L-W

Players to watch


Piotr Zielinski

Zielinski was instrumental in Poland’s victory over Saudi Arabia, as he was permitted to glide around the pitch, giving him the power and authority to open Saudi defences and deliver balls to strikers. He was able to combine well with Milik and Lewandowski, resulting in two goals for Poland. He will have to put together another competitive performance when Poland takes against Argentina.


Enzo Fernandez

Argentina’s midfield was non-existent, and Messi had to drop deep to collect the ball and carry out attacks. Mac Allister had little involvement in the game, and De Paul lost possession frequently. The introduction of Enzo Fernandez provided Argentina with welcome relief, as they were able to dominate possession and set the game’s direction with his presence. Scaloni should start him since Fernandez is a terrific midfielder.

Head-to-head news

Matches: 11

Poland: 3

Argentina: 6

Draws: 2

Predicted lineup

Poland predicted XI (4-4-2): Szczesny; Cash, Glik, Kiwior, Bereszynski; Zielinski, Bielik, Krychowiak, Frankowski; Milik, Lewandowski

Argentina predicted XI (4-3-1-2):  Martinez; Molina, Otamendi, Martinez, Acuna; Di Maria, De Paul, Fernandez, Mac Allister; Messi, Martinez


If Scaloni can find a strong eleven with good synergy among players and the aptitude to affect the game, Argentina will be an unstoppable juggernaut at this World Cup. Otherwise, they will have to rely on Messi once more, which could be detrimental to their performance. While Poland will offer a threat, at times they become vulnerable in defence, and Argentina has a wealth of strikers.

Argentina are a balanced squad, but Poland will have to rely on individual brilliance, giving Messi and the company an advantage in exposing the Polish team. Argentina should be able to win and advance to the last 16.

Prediction: Poland 0-4 Argentina
