Argentina and Poland will meet in their final games, respectively. This could prove to be a vital game for both teams.

Things to watch out for
- This will be Lionel Messi’s final FIFA World Cup, and Argentina will want to give him the ultimate send-off by lifting the trophy. Messi has been in splendid form for his club, PSG and will want to continue that run in the world cup.
- Poland striker Robert Lewandowski will be their talisman at the world cup. He is considered to be one of the most prolific strikers to have ever existed. He is currently in exquisite form for his club Barcelona, scoring five Champions League goals and twelve goals in the LaLiga this season.
- After defeating Brazil in the finals, Argentina won the Copa America trophy last year. They have been unbeaten for 35 games since 2019. They have been in excellent form as a team, winning almost every match they have played for the past couple of years. This form will be critical for them at the World Cup.
