Lose and go home. That’s the harsh fact facing Argentina as the team heads into its crucial World Cup match against Mexico.
Argentina arrived in Qatar as a favourite but suffered one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history with a 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia in their opening match. Now Argentina are in danger of elimination Saturday, when anything but a win or draw would mean an early Group C knockout for the Albiceleste.
Mexico, meanwhile, played to a 0-0 draw in their opening match against Poland. Mexico have failed to score in their last three World Cup matches — two losses and a draw — dating to group play in Russia in 2018.
France will also be in action on Saturday. The defending World Cup champions will play Denmark and a win would push France through to the round of 16.
See Saturday’s schedule below:
5:00 am – Tunisia vs Australia
11:00 am – France vs Denmark
8:00 am – Poland vs Saudi Arabia
2:00 pm – Argentina vs Mexico
