Lionel Messi will meet his Ballon d’Or heir Robert Lewandowski at the World Cup C showdown after Argentina and Poland draw against each other in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Perhaps this time, Messi will make his final World Cup appearance; he will be heading to the Middle East to collect the trophy of his brilliant personal collection team. In which there is praise for the reign of the best FIFA player in the world.

Saudi Arabia, one of the lowest-ranked parties in the world, hopes to overthrow the more established powers, but they have to do everything they can to do so.

World Cup 2022 Group C Draw

ARGENTINA

Argentina is one of the traditional powerhouses of the World Cup. This time around, the 2022 World Cup in Qatar could be considered a major force in Argentina’s return to the old order. But it could mark the final rate for one of the greatest players of all-time in this tournament.

Lionel Messi is 35 years old at the time of the 2022 World Cup final. In addition, Qatar is being touted by many as the last chance to add a World Cup trophy to its already bloated cabinet and end a remarkable career.

Undoubtedly, he will be the star name for South Americans. They are heading to the Middle East as Copa America champions after last year’s victory over arch-rivals Brazil. But Lionel Scaolini has a lot of talent. At least Ginny scored the crucial goal in that Copa final win over Angel Di Maria’s favorite.

SAUDI ARABIA

Saudi Arabia’s exit from the last four of the 2022 World Cup has come in the group stage, and it’s hard to imagine Qatar getting better at this point. Herve Renard’s team deserves credit for finishing above Australia in qualifying, but there is a feeling that they may find things more difficult if they face tough work.

The entire Saudi Arabian squad currently plays in their respective countries. However, they do have a coach who has experienced the full expansion of international football, having previously been in charge of Morocco, Ivory Coast, Zambia (twice), and Angolar. In the last World Cup in 2018, Saudi Arabia scored only two goals in Russia. Then, after four goals in the qualifying round, they will be looking to their striker Saleh Al Shehri for the lead.

MEXICO

Mexico has qualified CONCACAF as runners-up to Canada for goal difference in the final round since 1994. Each time, their presence in the World Cup finals has increased. El Tri has a list of people who are featured in North America and Europe. Atletico Madrid’s Stalwart Hector Herrora and Wolves’ Striker Raul will both be urged to bid for the World Cup.

Mexico does not score or concede too many goals – more than one goal per game in their qualifying bid – and they would expect that the compact game plan developed by former Barcelona coach Genrado Martino could prove enough to stifle group opponents.

POLAND

Poland’s Robert Lewandowski won the amulet battle to advance to the final through the Eastern Europeans’ play-off route after a 2-0 victory over Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Poland have a number of experienced performers, including their 33-year-old Bayern Munich Striker, who plays domestically all over Europe. It can be done.

Czeslaw Michniewice’s side claims a colorful World Cup history. Twice has been third, and will be confident of getting out of the group stage after losing only twice through the whole qualifying process.
