Argentina have been drawn in Group C at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
Lionel Scaloni has already spoken about the World Cup draw as FIFA has announced the kick off times for the matches. Argentina will play Saudi Arabia on November 22 in their first match. After that is a match against Mexico on 11 November and the final group match against Poland on 30 November. Here are the kick off times for the matches:
22/11: Argentina vs. Saudi Arabia, 7:00 am
26/11: Argentina vs. Mexico, 4:00 pm
30/11: Argentina vs. Poland, 4:00 pm
All kick off times are Argentina time.
In regards to Argentina’s opponents, the Copa America champions have never played Saudi Arabia at a World Cup. They have played Mexico twice in the last four FIFA World Cups.
The first in the Round of 16 at the 2006 World Cup where Maxi Rodriguez scored in extra time to give Argentina the 2-1 win. The second time was at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in the Round of 16 in a 3-1 win.
For those that are superstitious, the last time Argentina played Poland at a World Cup was in 1978, the same World Cup Argentina would win. The first time they played them was in 1974, a 3-2 loss.
