Mexico take on Poland today as Robert Lewandowski looks to banish bad memories of a goalless group stage in 2018. Both sides have been in indifferent form in the build-up to the competition but will be targeting a win here, especially after Saudi Arabia shocked Argentina earlier. Here’s how to watch a Mexico vs Poland live stream in the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Mexico come into this year’s tournament in less than impressive form. Tata Martino’s side have won just three of the eight games they’ve played in 2022, losing to Colombia, Paraguay and Uruguay, and drawing with Ecuador and Guatemala, which has led to some calls for the former Barcelona boss to lose his job. El Tri have reached the knockouts in the last seven World Cups in a row, but they’ll need to buck their ideas up if they’re to make that eight, given their Group C companions.
Mexico goalkeeper Ochoa will be familiar to fans thanks to his impressive performances in previous World Cups, while Chicharito’s omission from the squad means Henry Martin, Alexis Vega and Napoli’s Hirving Lozano will be charged with scoring the goals.
Poland finished behind England in their qualifying group, but a bye against Russia and a 2-0 win over Sweden meant they sealed their place in Group C through the playoffs. Their Nations League form this year hasn’t been great either, particularly the 6-1 defeat to Belgium, but when you’ve got Robert Lewandowski up top you’ve always got a chance of scoring goals and winning games. The 34-year-old has 18 for Barcelona this season and 63 in total for his country. Only a fool would bet against him adding more in Qatar.
Lewandowski leads the line for Poland here, with Zalewski and Kaminski on the wings. Lozano’s Napoli teammate Zielinski completes a midfield that also includes Krychowiak and Szymanski.
