Each of the four teams will play the other three nations in a round-robin style. The points from those three group-stage matches are used to determine the group rankings – three points for a victory, one point for a tie, and none for a defeat.


The single-game knockouts are held for the top two clubs in each group based on total points. If two clubs are tied on points, the first tiebreaker is goal differential, followed by goals scored. A different set of tiebreakers is used if teams are tied in those areas.

Argentina is a longstanding powerhouse in the game, might reclaim its place as a vital force to be reckoned with at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but it could also be the last shout for one of the game’s greatest ever players.


Lionel Messi will be 35 years old by the time the finals take place, and many regard Qatar as his final chance to add the World Cup trophy to his already filled trophy cabinet and cap off a remarkable career.


Without a doubt, he will be the star of the show for the South Americans, who won the Copa America last year after defeating arch-rivals Brazil in the final, but Lionel Scaolini’s team also has plenty of other talent, not least in the form of Angel Di Maria, who scored the game-winning goal in that Copa final victory.

Saudi Arabia

  • Current FIFA world ranking: 49th (March 2022)
  • Regional ranking: AFC– 5th
  • World Cup titles:
  • World Cup appearances (last):  6 (Russia 2018)
  • Manager: Herve Renard since July, 2019
  • Star players: Saleh Al Shehri (Al Hilal / Saudi Arabia), Salem Al Dawsari (Al Hilal / Saudi Arabia), Salman Al Faraj (Al Hilal / Saudi Arabia)
  • How qualified: AFC Third Round Group B runners-up 7W-1L-2D
  • Overall record (all competitions & friendlies):
    • 2022:Win-2 / Lose-1 / Draw-1 (Goals: 3 scored / 3 conceded)
    • 2021: Win-10 / Lose-2 / Draw-2 (Goals: 25 scored / 6 conceded)

Saudi Arabia has exited the World Cup in the group stages in each of their last four appearances, and it’s hard to imagine that changes coming in Qatar.


Herve Renard’s team deserves credit for finishing ahead of Australia in qualifying, but there is a sense that they will struggle when faced with more challenging tasks.


The entire Saudi Arabia team is now playing in their native country, although they have a coach in Renard who has coached teams from Morocco, Ivory Coast, Zambia (twice), and Angola. Saudi Arabia only scored two goals in Russia 2018, and Renard will turn to striker Saleh Al Shehri, who scored four goals in the qualifiers, to lead them this time.


  • Current FIFA world ranking: 9th (March 2022)
  • Regional ranking:  CONCACAF – 1st
  • World Cup titles:
  • World Cup appearances (last): 16 (Brazil 2018)
  • Manager: Gerardo Martino since January, 2019
  • Star players: Raul Jimenez (Wolves / England), Hector Herrera (Atletico Madrid / Spain), Jesus Corona (Sevilla / Spain)

    • 2022:Win-4 / Lose-0 / Draw-2 (Goals: 6 scored / 1 conceded)
    • 2021: Win-12 / Lose-6 / Draw-6 (Goals: 36 scored / 19 conceded)

Mexico secured CONCACAF qualifying as runners-up to Canada on goal difference in the final round, extending their streak of competing in every World Cup finals since 1994.


El Tri’s roster is made up of players that have played in Europe and North America. Raul Jimenez of Wolves and Hector Herrera of Atletico Madrid will be highly relied upon to help the country qualify for the World Cup.


Mexico will not really score or concede many goals as they average just over one goal a game scored in their qualification bid. Besides, they’ll be hoping that their tight gameplan, created by crafty former Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino will be enough to crush their group opponents.


  • Current FIFA world ranking: 26th (March 2022)
  • Regional ranking: UEFA – 15th
  • World Cup titles:
  • World Cup appearances (last): 8 (Russia 2018)
  • Manager: Czeslaw Michniewicz since January, 2022
  • Star players: Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich / Germany), Piotr Zielinski (Napoli / Italy), Matty Cash (Aston Villa / England)
  • How qualified: UEFA playoff winners: 2-0 vs. Sweden
  • Overall record (all competitions & friendlies):
    • 2022: Win-1 / Lose-0 / Draw-1 (Goals: 3 scored / 1 conceded)
    • 2021: Win-6 / Lose-4 / Draw-5 (Goals: 37 scored / 20 conceded)

Following a 2-0 win, Poland’s Robert Lewandowski defeated Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the battle of the talismans, ensuring the Eastern Europeans a place in the finals via the playoff route. After first-round opponents Russia was banned by FIFA as a consequence of their country’s invasion of Ukraine, Poland was handed a bye directly to the final match.


Aside from their 33-year-old Bayern Munich striker, Poland’s squad is full of skilled players who have played in Europe’s domestic leagues. Piotr Zielinski of Napoli could provide Lewandoski with plenty of opportunities to add to his 74 international goals.


Czeslaw Michniewicz’s team has an illustrious history in the World Cup. They have twice finished third, and will be optimistic of progressing beyond the group phase, after losing twice throughout the qualification campaign.
