Argentina Group of World Cup in Qatar: The selected ones from Argentina, one of the top favorites to win the contest, Poland, Saudi Arabia and Mexico will meet in that area, of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Argentina Group of World Cup in Qatar
A simple appearance in 2006, two unappealable disappointments in 2010 and 2018, and a runner-up finish in 2014: Messi will live his fifth final phase of the absolute World Cup, with the mission of lifting the champion trophy on December 18 to culminate in the best way his spectacular race.
But for that final, the road still seems long for the Albiceleste, who reaches the World Cup backed by a streak of 35 games without defeat since July 2019, and with the Copa América title last year.
What Did Lionel Messi Say About the Argentina Team?
“With Argentina, it is a moment in which we are well, people are excited, climb the walls (restless), and think that we are back with the Cup, but it is not so easy. They have to give a lot of things,” the president recently warned—Paris Saint-Germain star in an interview with DirectTV Sports.
Motivated by this World Cup, which will presumably be the last of his career, the 35-year-old Argentine captain is off to a great start to the season with PSG (12 goals and 13 assists in 17 games).
After the slip in Russia 2018 with Jorge Sampaoli, Lionel Scaloni, one of his deputies, has been able to build a coherent and complete group, which is also supported by the quality of Ángel Di María, the effectiveness of Lautaro Martínez and the safety of the goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez or defenses like Lisandro Martínez or Cristian Romero.
How Do Argentina’s Rivals Arrive at the Qatar 2022 World Cup?
The Argentines will start Qatar-2022 against the theoretically weakest rival in their group, Saudi Arabia. The ‘Green Falcons’ have only qualified once for the round of 16 of a World Cup in the United States in 1994.
For its part, Mexico has systematically reached the round of 16 since 1994 and will therefore be a more than serious candidate to win one of the first two places. He was a finalist in the last Concacaf Gold Cup, and the ‘Tri’ will start their World Cup against Poland.
On paper, the Poles arrive with a squad of guarantees in all lines, from goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny to scorer Robert Lewandowski, but the team was eliminated in the group stage both in the 2018 World Cup and in the European Championship last year.
