Argentina shocked the world in their opener… but for all the wrong reasons. They were heavy favourites to win against Saudi Arabia but we’re simply stunned by the Middle Eastern side as they reigned 2 – 1 victors over a side that boasted talents such as Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and so many more.
Mexico on the other hand played out a 0 – 0 draw with Poland, with their hero being the usual World Cup suspect of Guillermo Ochoa who denied Robert Lewandowski from the penalty spot to rescue a point.
With both teams looking for their first win of the Qatar World Cup, this should be a cracker – so let’s dive into things. Here’s everything you need to know regarding the fixture.
