Messi and Lewandowski lead the dreams of Argentina and Poland

  • Polish top scorer Lewandowski.



The Argentine magician, Lionel Messi, is facing a new challenge in his career with his country at the FIFA World Cup finals, which are currently being held in Qatar, hoping to continue the team's campaign towards regaining the absent title 36 years ago.

Messi will have to meet one of the current international football stars, the Polish international scorer Robert Lewandowski, in a heavy-caliber confrontation between them.

The Argentine national team will meet its Polish counterpart today, at Stadium (974), in the third (last) round of the third group stage of the World Cup, which is witnessing another meeting taking place at the same time between the national teams of Saudi Arabia and Mexico.

Poland tops the group standings table with four points, a point ahead of its closest opponents, Argentina, which outperforms the Saudi team, third-placed, equal to it in three points, while Mexico is at the bottom of the standings with one point.

The Argentine national team aspires to collect the three points, in order to snatch one of the two nomination tickets for that group for the round of 16, which it crowned in 1978 and 1986, without regard to the outcome of the other meeting between Saudi Arabia and Mexico, as it will raise its tally at that time to six points.

The same applies to the Poland national team, which is participating for the ninth time in the World Cup. If it beats Argentina, it will maintain its lead in the ranking table in light of its score rising to seven points, and then qualifies for the round of 16 in the World Cup for the fifth time in its history, and the first since the 1986 edition of the competition. in Mexico.

In the event that the match ends in a tie, the Polish national team will also guarantee its official qualification for the next round, as its score will then rise to five points, while the Argentines will have four points, so that their future in promotion depends on the outcome of the other meeting between Saudi Arabia and Mexico.

Messi, the historic top scorer for the Argentine national team with 109 goals in 190 matches, confirmed that the victory over Mexico reduced the pressure on him and his colleagues after the loss to Saudi Arabia.
