World Cup 2022 LIVE: Mexico vs Poland latest score and goal updates from Group C game in Qatar as Robert Lewandowski starts

World Cup: Daily update from day 2 in Qatar

Mexico play Poland in the Qatar World Cup after Saudi Arabia shocked Argentina in Group C earlier on Tuesday.

Robert Lewandowski will be desperate to thrive on the big stage after hitting the ground running with Barcelona following his big summer move from Bayern Munich.

While El Tri have been a perennial last-16 side, they struggle to make the quarter-finals, with Napoli’s Hirving Lozano among their talented options.

With Saudi Arabia off to a surprising start, the battle to seemingly finish as runner-up has become complicated, with future games against Lionel Messi and the Albiceleste now likely to be tougher than ever given their desperation.

Mexico 0-0 Poland

30 mins: Poland have a free kick near the halfway line after that Sanchez foul, and a long ball is sent into the Mexico box. It’s headed away, though, and Poland have a throw-in on their right flank.

Mexico 0-0 Poland

28 mins: Another Mexico chance!!

A terrific chipped pass into the Poland box reaches Gallardo near the byline, and the Mexican tries to cut it back towards goal, but Szczesny rushes out and – with some help from his defenders – does enough to force Gallardo into screwing the ball wide of the post.

Sanchez then picks up the first yellow card of the match moments later.

Mexico 0-0 Poland

27 mins: Chance! A one-two between Lozano and Herrera ends with the latter sweeping in a cross, and the resultant back-post header drifts across goal and just wide of Szczesny’s post!

Mexico 0-0 Poland

23 mins: It’s pinball in the Poland half until they manage to surge up the pitch, and Lewandowski goes down under a challenge just inside the Mexico box as the ball is fed into him…

No foul given. It seems the striker had failed to control the ball before being brought down, and he wasn’t going to get to it after that.

Mexico 0-0 Poland

20 mins: A Mexico cross is curved in from the right, and it bounces just in front of Glik, who hacks at it and sends the ball high into the air…

Szczesny is there to catch it, however, with no Mexico players around him.

Mexico 0-0 Poland

17 mins: Poland move the ball neatly from left to right then back into the centre, but Mexico dispossess them and come forward themselves!

They lose the ball deep in the Polish half but will look to pen in their opponents, who have a throw-in.

They briefly manage to do so before Poland break away!

The ball is crossed into Lewandowski outside the Mexico box, but it’s at an awkward height for the Barcelona striker, and he can’t bring it down.
