3 reasons to watch Group C's clash between Argentina and Poland

Tonight in Group C, Poland and Argentina will square off to finish the Group stages at the top while Saudi Arabia will face already eliminated Mexico. The Green falcons will have to get at least 3 points tonight if they are to proceed to the next round of the FIFA World cup.

Group stages of the FIFA World Cup 2022 are about to come to an end with 11 group stage matches to go, 4 teams have booked their berth for the Round of 16. Group A winners Netherlands are set to square off against Group B runners up USA, while Group B Winners England will put to test against deserving Group A runners-up Senegal.

However, the focus is on Argentina Vs. Poland as the loser will be eliminated from the World cup or hope that Mexico beats Saudi Arabia. In this piece, Sportzcraazy will point out 3 reasons to watch Argentina Vs. Poland tonight.

1. Lionel Messi‘s last dance – All of us must have heard about the quote “Football owes Messi a world cup” and this quote is on the line tonight. Argentina’s opener at the World cup against Saudi Arabia saw them suffer a shocking defeat against minnows Saudi Arabia which ended their unbeaten run from 2019. La Albiceleste’s chances would have further narrowed if Poland and Mexico’s match did not end goalless. Argentina faced Mexico up next and won the match comfortably by 2-0. This game between Argentina and Poland holds a lot of significance for the South Americans, especially for Lionel Messi, who is playing his final world cup and a World cup would be icing on the cake for his illustrious career.

2. Robert Lewandowski’s final chance to do something significant for Poland – FC Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski has achieved almost everything in his club career except for two things – the Ballon D’or and an International trophy with Poland. He has been one of the best strikers in the world for the last 5 years winning the UEFA Champions and several German trophies with Bayern Munich. The 34-year-old is on his final stretch and he will hope to do something special tonight against Argentina in order to proceed to the last 16.

3. Tug of war between Saudi Arabia, Poland and Argentina – Group C’s final two fixtures between Argentina Vs. Poland and Saudi Arabia Vs. Mexico will decide how Group C will come to an end. The winner of Argentina Vs. Poland will definitely go through to the Round of 16 with the loser hoping Saudi Arabia losing to Mexico. From Saudi’s perspective, they just need to win their fixture and that is all they have in their hands. Should Saudi stick to their basic game plan they can hold Mexico to proceed to the next round.
