Poland and Argentina qualify for the World Cup


Wednesday’s match saw Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, defeat Poland 2-0 to win Group C of the World Cup and advance to the round of 16, while the Poles also advanced based on goal differential.


Despite Lionel Messi’s penalty being saved, Argentina won Group C by a score of 2-0 on Wednesday and advanced to the round of 16 of the World Cup. Poland also advanced as runners-up, but only due to Mexico’s 2-1 victory over Saudi Arabia in the other group game and Poland’s superior goal differential.Alexis Mac Allister’s goal in the 46th minute eased Argentina’s tension following a tense first half. A little more than 20 minutes later, Julian Alvarez doubled Argentina’s lead. Argentina was unable to beat the Polish goalkeeper in the first 45 minutes as Wojciech Szczesny saved his second penalty of the tournament.


Szczesny was adjudged to have fouled Messi while Messi was reaching for a cross, but he dove to his left to stop the subsequent penalty kick. Messi had failed to convert his 31st career penalty attempt.Even though Poland had a star striker in Robert Lewandowski, their offensive threat was not great.
