The Argentines will begin the journey for their international glory on Tuesday when the Copa America winners take on Saudi Arabia in Group C at the Lusail Iconic Stadium. Argentina vs Saudi Arabia will be a very interesting match as these 2 teams have played each other 4 times in their history.
Argentina – In what could be Lionel Messi’s final World Cup, there is every reason to believe that this year could be Argentina’s year. Lionel Scaloni’s side arrived in Qatar with Copa America already wrapped up, and ending a 36-year drought without World Cup glory is next on the agenda for the South American champions. The Argentine squad is full of stars and is expected to thrash any opponents who come in their way. However, Argentina won’t take Saudi Arabia lightly and will give their best to grab all 3 points.
Saudi Arabia – They started their last year’s campaign by facing Russia in the opening game. However, things didn’t go the way they wanted and ended up losing 5-0 to the host. So this year they will make sure they won’t suffer such an incident against Argentina as they are one of the contenders to win this year’s World Cup. Saudi Arabia’s only World Cup progress beyond the group stage has come in 1994, and the world’s 51st-ranked nation arrives in Qatar in poor form, having won only two of their last ten matches in all tournaments.
