Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Robert Lewandowski and others are in motion today as a part of a star-studded line-up because the second round of 2022 World Cup group-stage fixtures continues. Argentina face Mexico in Group C and France battle Denmark in Group D among the many 4 games on offer throughout one other exciting day of football in Qatar.
Argentina might be dumped out of the World Cup on the group stage in the event that they are beaten by Mexico after their shock 2-1 defeat to Saudi Arabia in MD1. Lionel Messi and co. might be fighting to avoid further humiliation in what guarantees to be a ferocious affair on the 80,000-capacity Lusail Iconic Stadium.
But before that, Tunisia can temporarily move top of Group D with a win against Australia within the early kick-off. Then Saudi Arabia will look to construct on that historic triumph against Argentina against Poland, who likely have to win for a likelihood of progressing into the knockout stages.
France and Denmark will then meet in a game that would determine the Group D winners at Stadium 974. It guarantees to be one other 24 hours of headline-grabbing antics in Qatar.
