The list of candidates to take the crown in Qatar 2022 is not that extensive, although Argentina should be put in there at least because they have Lionel Messi. Read along to find out when their FIFA World Cup games will be.
Much is expected of Qatar 2022. The list of stars who will participate in it is large, but the one who has candidates to win the title is not. Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, should appear among those ready to win.
Their road to the FIFA World Cup was not that complicated. Instead, they ended their CONMEBOL qualifying journey with a great run. They have been so solid that they have not lost a single game in 17 games played, considering that one game against Brazil was suspended.
Argentina will be in a very balanced group, even if they are favorites to advance. Something worth keeping an eye on is their health as they seem to keep missing pieces due to injuries of late. Find out the schedule of their first round matches.
Argentina’s schedule in Qatar 2022
The draw has been generous with the Argentinians in their last FIFA World Cup participations. Although this time that wasn’t the case since, they will face two good teams. They were drawn in group C with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.
Argentina will begin their journey on Tuesday, November 22 against Saudi Arabia. That’s a great opportunity to start right, but they must remember that in Russia 2018 they were disappointing vs a weak opponent like Iceland. Their next game will be on Saturday, November 26 in a clash with Mexico. They will finish off with Robert Lewandowski’s Poland on Wednesday, November 30.
They barely qualified to the round of 16 in their last appearance, though it seems appropriate to look ahead. If they advance, their opponent will come from group D. Therefore, the available options are France, Denmark, Tunisia, and Australia. So that means that one bad result or a French mishap could repeat the scenario that took them out four years ago.
