Argentina first faced Mexico in the first FIFA World Cup in 1930. Past results do not guarantee a prediction in the present, but they can certainly give us an idea regarding the team’s strengths and weaknesses.
Argentina has seen more wins than Mexico. However, there have been accounts of bad performances by the Argentina team, which became vivid in their defeat to the Saudi Arabia team. Argentina can’t afford to lose this match if they want to latch onto the FIFA World Cup. Mexico’s match against Poland was also an array of missed opportunities and less impactful play.
The showrunner, Lionel Messi, has a lot on his shoulders for this match as fans look up to him to prevent Argentina from losing the match. Messi had a solo Thursday practise but is expected to open this weekend, relieving Lionel Scaloni of a major selection dilemma.
Mexico and Poland played in the opening FIFA match of the 2022 World Cup and it ended in a 0-0 draw. Both teams fought until the bitter end and did not give up easily. If Mexico brings the fighting spirit of not letting it go, then the wind is bound to be in favor of the team.
Potential starting lineup for Argentina:
- E. Martinez
- Li. Martinez
- De Paul
- La. Martinez
- Di Maria
Potential starting lineup for Mexico:
Mexico fans are looking forward to a match that is well-fought and has good performances. It needs not to be said that many football enthusiasts are eagerly looking forward to this particular match, as anything can happen at the last moment.
