Previous, Argentina – Mexico

The Mexican team led by Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino carried out a recovery session after Tuesday’s draw against Poland (0-0) that leaves Group C with Saudi Arabia as leader after their victory against Argentina against whom the ‘Tri’ will face off in the first match with the aroma of the ‘final’ of Qatar 2022. But, for now, everything is assumptions for a match that will be played in the best possible stadium, that of Lusail, which will host the final on December 18 and which has a capacity of 88,966 spectators that surely both hobbies, one of the most numerous in Qatar, will fill up to support their own.

Argentina vs. Mexico, two of the great countries of Latin American soccer, have a long history of confrontations and on Saturday, in the second day of group C of Qatar-2022, they will cross paths for the fourth time in a World Cup.

Of the previous three, two were in recent times (round of 16 in both 2006 and 2010) and in both with Lionel Messi from Albiceleste on the pitch, so the Paris Saint-Germain star will cross paths with the Tri in the highest football tournament for the third time in the World Cup. In the previous two he could not mark him.

On the three occasions that both countries met in World Cups, the victory was for the Albiceleste. In this sense, in the first edition of the World Cup, that of Uruguay, Argentina and Mexico crossed paths on July 19, 1930 at the Centenario stadium in Montevideo.

Mexico was already eliminated in their group and Argentina had fun with a broken toy, with a 6-3, in a match in which Guillermo Stábile stood out for the South American team, with a hat-trick.

The duel hardly had a story, with a 3-0 score for the Argentines after 17 minutes. From then on, the outlook was clear for an Argentina that led the group and then reached the final of the competition, being beaten there 4-2 by Uruguay, the first team to win the new tournament.
