If Lionel Messi is to win the World Cup for the first time, he will likely look back on today as a defining moment.
The Argentina talisman heads into a crunch clash with Poland in Group C that will decide his, and La Albiceleste’s fate at Qatar 2022.
A hard-fought win over Mexico last time out got Argentina back on track — Lionel Scaloni’s side having been stunned in their opener against Saudi Arabia.
Now, they face Poland knowing that a win will be enough to keep their title charge rolling.

There can be no room for error, though. For either side. Poland know that any kind of positive result against Messi and Co. will be enough to seal their own spot, but Mexico and Saudi Arabia are breathing down their neck, as they meet in the other Group C clash both seeking victory.
Meanwhile, France face Tunisia — likely with a much-changed side thanks to their knockout place already being secured — and Australia look to make more history after their first World Cup win in 12 years by beating, or likely even drawing with, Denmark to progress.
