FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Group C: Argentina, Mexico, Poland & Saudi Arabia

FIFA World Cup Group C

2022 FIFA World Cup Group C: Argentina, Mexico, Poland & Saudi Arabia…Lionel Messi will meet his Ballon d’Or heir-apparent Robert Lewandowski in a World Cup Group C showdown after Argentina and Poland were drawn against each other for the tournament in Qatar. Messi, making what will likely be his final World Cup appearance, will be heading to the Middle East looking to add the world team trophy to his already glittering individual collection — which includes the accolade of reigning FIFA best player in the world.

Argentina and Poland will both fancy their chances of progression, and they meet on Nov. 30 in the final group game, but it is far from a straightforward pool — with Mexico likely to put up a stiff challenge, having come through North American (CONCACAF) qualifying. Saudi Arabia — one of the lowest-ranked sides in the tournament — will carry hopes of upsetting the more established powers, but they will have it all to do.
