Mexico square off against Robert Lewandowski-led Poland in their Group C opener.
North American heavyweights Mexico take on Czesław Michniewicz’s Poland in Group C at Stadium 974.
Earlier today, Saudi Arabia pulled off one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history when they beat Argentina (one of the favorites to win this year) 2-1. That result will leave Mexico and Poland fighting for the three points and a grip on the group.
Led by former Argentina star and manager Gerardo Martino, Mexico are playing in their eighth consecutive World Cup, having successfully advanced from the group stage in each of their last seven entries.
Poland, on the other hand, is playing in its second consecutive World Cup after failing to qualify for the 2010 and 2014 World Cups. They failed to get past the group stage in 2018 and their star player Robert Lewandowski will be hoping to add to his international goals tally of 76 and inspire them to the knockout stages.
Mexico vs Poland Lineups Confirmed
Mexico XI (4-3-3): Ochoa; J. Sanchez, Montes, Moreno, Gallardo; Edson Alvarez, Herrera, Chavez; Lozano, Martin, Vega
Poland XI (4-5-1): Szczęsny; Berezinsky, Glick, Kivior, Cash; Kaminski, Kirchowiak, Szymanski, Zielinski, Zalewski; Lewandowski
