World Cup’s Group C comes to a close Wednesday, and the day sees Poland face Argentina with nothing yet decided. The Polish are in first place with four points while Argentina are second with three. Saudi Arabia are third with a worse goal differential, and Mexico are in last place with one. If Poland win or draw, they are through to the next round. They could also lose and advance as long as Saudi Arabia or Mexico don’t surpass them on goal differential. Argentina are through with a win, while a draw will be enough as long as Saudi Arabia and Mexico also draw.

Argentina: Coach Lionel Scaloni has already hinted at repeating the team that started against Mexico, but is that really the best choice? The team was quite slow and predictable and outplayed, at times, in the first hour. It seems like he would be better off repeating the team from the opening game that created plenty but just couldn’t finish. A name to watch, however, is Enzo Fernandez, who dazzled off the bench against Mexico, getting the second goal and his first for the team. He’s a natural fit to slide into the midfield due to the struggles of others such as Leandro Paredes and Guido Rodriguez.
Poland: They are on the right path and have proven difficult to break down, not conceding a goal in the tournament so far, joining Brazil and Morocco. Wojiech Szczesny has been brilliant at goalkeeper. Getting a goal from Robert Lewandowski will only help his confidence after scoring what was his first goal ever at a World Cup. They have the players to get in behind of the Argentine backline, but it will all depend on the service. They should feel confident in being able to get through.
