How Argentina can Qualify for Round of 16

What Lionel Messis Argentina Need To Qualify For Round Of 16

Argentina was one of the favorites going into the 2022 FIFA World Cup, but they were shocked by Saudi Arabia in their opening match, losing 1-2. Prior to Lionel Messi’s amazing goal in the second half, La Albiceleste labored for the majority of the game against Mexico. Argentina increased its lead to 2-0 with a spectacular strike from Enzo Fernandez. Argentina moved up to second place in Group C as a result of the victory, while Poland maintained first place after a win and a draw. The qualification situation for Group C teams is a little complicated going into the last round of Group Stage matches.

Poland, who is now in first place, will advance if they defeat Argentina or draw their match. The Robert Lewandowski-led team needs to win in order to secure its status as group winners; if they draw, the outcome would depend on the outcome of the contest between Saudi Arabia and Mexico.

Poland can still advance even if they lose, but Mexico would need to defeat Saudi Arabia for that to happen. The qualification scenario would depend on the goal differential if Saudi Arabia and Mexico drew.

Argentina must win in order to advance to the Round of 16, although a draw may also be sufficient if Saudi Arabia vs. Mexico also results in a tie. Lionel Messi’s team will be eliminated if Mexico defeats Saudi Arabia by a wide margin and Argentina only draws with Poland.
