World Cup: Argentina Qualifies And Avoids France, Which Will Face Poland

Must Read

The posters of the round of 16 of the World Cup 2022 are coming up. We may see a superb England – France in the quarterfinals if England beats Senegal and France beats Poland in the round of 16.

Despite a missed penalty of Messi, Argentina beat Poland (2-0) to get a round of 16 against Australia. The band to Lewandowski has however ensured its qualification and will face France.

It was one of the big favorites at the start of the competition but it will not have walked in its group. However, Argentina is well on the way to the round of 16 against Australia. After the slap in the face of Saudi Arabia (1-2), the South Americans have rectified the situation against Mexico (2-0) and, this Wednesday, against Poland (2-0).

A French team that lost in its last group match against Tunisia (0-1), nevertheless eliminated. The first setback of the Blues in the World Cup since the quarterfinal against Germany (0-1) in 2014. The score was then 1-1 after an equalization in the last seconds of Antoine Griezman. But Mr. Conger, the New Zealand referee, was alerted by the VAR and, after reviewing the images, cancelled the goal for an offside at the start of the action of the striker of Atletico.

The Aussies, on the other hand, secured their place in the last 16 with a 1-0 win over the Danes. A great achievement under the leadership of Graham Arnold. A coach who played in… Belgium: at RFC Liège (1992-94) with a certain Eric Gererts as coach and at SC Charleroi (94-95).

A crazy scenario, but a victory for nothing… To reach the last 16, Mexico needed a victory and a favorable result in the other game, favorable enough to allow them to catch up on their goal difference with Argentina or Poland. Tata Martino’s men came close to scoring a goal against the Saudis, as did the Argentinians against the Poles, but in the end it was in vain. Even without Al Dawsari’s final goal, Lewandowski and his team would have qualified thanks to… better fair play.
