Alexis Mac Allister and Julián Álvarez scored for Argentina in their 2-0 win vs. Poland.
It was Argentina’s best game at the World Cup and they were rewarded with a place in the Round of 16 at the World Cup. Argentina controlled the entire first half and were awarded a controversial penalty kick.
Poland’s goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny had his hand in Messi’s face after Messi had already headed the ball out of play. The referee went to VAR and a penalty was given.
A penalty for Argentina and Messi had his effort saved. The first half ended 0-0 with Argentina creating a few chances.
Mac Allister gave Argentina the 1-0 lead very early in the second half. A low pass into the penalty area by Nahuel Molina and it fell to Mac Allister and his effort would make it 1-0 for Argentina.
Enzo Fernández started the match and had an assist on the second goal. A pass in to Julián Álvarez as Álvarez would shoot from outside of the penalty area and score to make it 2-0 and extend Argentina’s lead.
Argentina play Australia in the Round of 16 on Saturday.
Dybala is being disrespected and it sad that Argentina is wasting him
I have a feeling we will see Dybala against Aussies if/once we have a 2-goal lead..
Belive me guys. Julian is born made killer. Lautaro is not even close to this kid. He must play.
What’s up with el Toro? Agree Alvarez runs are crazy good. Let’s hope he can work on 1×1. Seems like he misses them often but then scores golazos.
El toro seems off. I hope he gets goal scoring form soon.
No hate to MacAllister. He did great. But I would still play Dybala in his place. How come Dybala didn’t get chance even when MacAllister was subbed!?
Instead of defender Molina going so far up, that job can be done by Dybala.
Dybala DOES NOT RUN IN DEFENSE. You cant play him in a midfield 3, ever. He could had gone in fr Fideo.
If Dybala played , Molina wouldn’t have to go so far up and hence defence will be ok. And Dybala does defend sometimes.
McAllister played a heck of a game. I’m sure he’s now becoming a known starter.
Enzo – world class, a little scared at first but built confidence throughout game and assisted
I think dybala will have his moment vs Australia.
No. Dybala should play in right wing as dimaria replacement dimaria is not playing that good frankly speaking. Dybala should play right wing as he is playing in roma this season plus under mourinho he is pressing and helping in defense
Almada didn’t play bad in the little time he got.
Totally agree. First pass or two were from jitters but almost got an assist. He ran until the final whistle
Relief Relief Relief . Also the momentum is uphill.
Acuna & Montiel should ensure they dont pick another yellow which rules them out of QF. After QF – card accumulation is wiped out.
An old debt of an Olympics game loss vs Australia to be repaid with interest in coming days !!!
Hope Scaloni is keeping Dybala hidden to unleash him in knockout stage. Thats my only remaining crib on coach. But got to call out his selection of Macclister & Alvarez fully vindicated today.
Great game by beloved Argentina. Scalony tactics was perfect for last two games. Timely changes. Scalony haters please shut up. He won us Copa. Hopefully WC too.
By any chance one would have a clip to count how many passes we passed to the second goal
It really minded cambiasso Goal arg vs serbia 2006
Give credit to MacAllister and Enzo. These two young kids are so dynamic and have big hearts. We no longer miss Lo Celso.
Totally agree! These two are solid with only maybe 120 mins playing together ?? Unreal. I think their big challenge will be quarterfinal and onward
………and the uniform was almost the same……….the blue Albiceleste uniform akin to what they wore today. That 2006 goal had something like 22 passes. I’d also love to know how many passes we had…….perhaps 15? I didn’t count. I was over the moon to care.
WE MARCH ON!
The 2nd half of Mexico game, and the entire Poland game. Argentina Dominated!
We are looking good.

Who can be the quarter finalist opponent for us
Winner of the Netherlands vs USA game.
i AM NOt scared of either team. We are looking good…..adn we have a spring in our step.
Messi and co. were playing in non existent space inside the box. I couldn’t even follow.
We could be as good as Spain ….if not better……although Spain bungled up the Germany game.
I really hope it’s USA. Netherlands would be a tougher opponent but they’re not as dangerous as France/England. I think Denmark is better than this Netherlands team.
I hope we are getting a little better every match and reach our peak in SF.
I hope so too.
Yup! I think US has a chance. Netherlands look a little sloppy up top but these big teams usually will show up in important matches.
I do think usa can win it 2-1
Which team Argentina can face if we reach to QF?
USA or Holland
Why do we play Saturday and not Sunday? The Sunday teams get an extra day rest!!
Thinking same. I thought we play Sunday.
This is good for us. Australia seemed total exhausted at the end of the Denmark game.
Now it’s time to watch Australian games. I’ve been watching Denmark this whole time 🙁
About Socceroos, they play counterattack and have a young team. BTW, we struggled to defeat Saudi during qualifiers.
They are young and spirited but I don’t see any reason why it will be difficult to beat them.
Argentina 3-0 Australia.
The best part is we have lost against Saudi so there is no way we will take Socceroos lightly.
The best thing that happened to this team that we love is to lose against KSA.
That was a blessing in disguise.
I was kind of sick about it but we are all over it now.
We needed it. We needed that. We needed the pressure. We needed two finals whereby, you lose and go home and we delivered.
Now, there’ll be no such pressure. We’ll definitely beat the Socceroos God willing.
With God’s grace, we’ll beat the US. I see them beating Holland but regardless, we’ll beat the Dutch.
Then we take on (Brazil?)
Enzo must start the rest of the way. A goal and an assist in two “knock out” games…That is the composure that is needed.
Give credit to scaloni.. perfectly managed the roster, Substitutions👌👌 introducing pezella and paredes.
Concerning thing is the form of lautaro Martinez and exclusion of dybala
Good that team played well despite messi missing penalty. Lautro being shit is bad news for us. Hopefully Di Maria and Lautro play better.
Lautaro was good in the first 45 mins in this WC.. VAR killed his mood..
He will eventually score. I wouldn’t worry about him especially we have Alvarez.
I’m more worried about Messi’s fitness. If we are up 3 goals against Kangaroos, we should sub him off and let Dybala play.
Hope Messi agree to that.
Messi played quite well.
Rather than subbing him, the better idea will be to let others take more set pieces.
HURRAY! We won! We Won!
El Diego Fan,
I am over the moon!
Did Lewandowski play today?
Cuti whispering in his ear all game. Te voy a comer.
Be nice Dfox. Lol
Team absorb the early pressure. It will definitely help them and boost up confidence in big matches. Inshallah we could go all the way this time..it’s 3.33 am in bangladesh and people are celebrating the win
Eagerly waiting for you, Seba and Osvaldo. This was one of the best game I ve seen Argentina played in a WC. Total domination ❤️🔥.
– Shovan from Florida
Best game of the tournament simply total domination. When we lost to Saudi I said we will beat Mexico and Poland and go long this tournament that is exactly what will happen, losing to saudi made wake no underestimate no team
The best thing that happened to Argy is losing to KSA.
They sharpened us. Something clicked in us.
We are with it.
Great Game from Argentina… Scaloni did great with the Midfield.
But still one question: why the hell no Dybala?????????
What about the talks before WC that Scaloni will give Time to Dybala???
He is so good right now I don’t get it why not play Dybala instead bring Almada that’s a joke
I think Dybala would be a starter in almost every other team in the WC
Yes Dybala should play.
Even when MacAllister was subbed off, Dybala should have got chance.
Dybala should be subbed in when we are desperate for goal. This case, a midfielder makes total sense.
I’d still sub him in for Messi but we know Leo was hunting for a goal after the PK miss. So…
We are asking to use two inform players from starting… finally it happened…Enzo and Mac.
Great game, MacAllister and Alvarez….Vamos Albiceleste!
Hopefully no more hate on Mac Allister..!
hey the Kid from Atlanta United got to play LMAO I was laughing when I saw him on the sidelines about to enter LOL
That was a national disgrace and a waste of substitution. We should not give MLS fraud player any time to represent us. I would rather give Armani some playing time.
i beleive you have not seen mls games for almada…in dribbling i rank him after messi..we will unleash him soon
I hope USMNT win this Saturday morning. We will once again have a better mood in the afternoon game against Australia.
ARG shouldn’t think what happens in other matches….. Just think about coming match & focus on their game, fitness….
Same. Arg. do better in late kick time.
Come on, great game!!!
