World Cup 2022 LIVE: Poland vs Argentina latest score, goals and updates as Messi and Lewandowski start

World Cup 2022: Jubilant England fans celebrate after cruising to victory against Wales

Argentina play Poland in both teams’ final Group C game at the World Cup 2022 in Qatar this evening.

Poland enter this match atop Group C on four points, having played out a 0-0 draw with Mexico in their tournament opener, before beating Saudi Arabia 2-0 as Robert Lewandowski scored his first ever World Cup finals goal.

Meanwhile, Argentina began their campaign with a shock 2-1 defeat by the Saudis, before bouncing back with a 2-0 victory over Mexico – with captain Lionel Messi scoring once in each fixture – to put them on three points.

Neither Poland nor Argentina has yet booked their spot in the last 16, but a win for either would secure them a place in the knockout stages. A draw would also send both of these teams through if the Saudis draw with Mexico.

World Cup 2022: Poland 0-0 Argentina

22 mins: Cash outruns Otamendi to get on the ball by the byline in Argentina’s half, on Poland’s right side, and the right back then wins his nation a corner.

Zielinski takes it, but Alvarez heads it away. Zielinksi ends up back on the ball some way from the box, and he clips it in.

Poland centre back Glick tries a scorpion kick! He sends the ball high up into the air, though, and Martinez catches it.

World Cup 2022: Poland 0-0 Argentina

20 mins: Another great ball out to Acuna on Argentina’s left flank, and he opts to head it.

He could nod the ball back across goal or try to squeeze it past Szczesny at the near post, and he tries the latter…

But it’s a weak effort, saved easily.

World Cup 2022: Poland 0-0 Argentina

17 mins: Messi plays a wonderful diagonal ball out to left back Acuna, who brings it down well and shifts it onto his right foot…

He lets it bounce then slashes at his shot, firing it high and wide of the Poland goal.

World Cup 2022: Poland 0-0 Argentina

14 mins: Lewandowski gets on the ball a couple of times in the final third, but he’s out wide on Poland’s right wing – not where his team want or need him, really.

World Cup 2022: Poland 0-0 Argentina

12 mins: Messi is on the ball, just outside the Poland penalty area, and Cash forces him wider and wider to Argentina’s left flank.

Messi is still getting closer to goal, though, just at an increasingly awkward angle… and he powers a shot at Szczesny’s near post!

Firm parry from the goalkeeper, and the ball goes out for an Argentina corner.

Poland deal with it well. Good pressure from Argentina at the moment, though.

World Cup 2022: Poland 0-0 Argentina

10 mins: Mac Allister knicks the ball off his man in the Poland half, before slipping it to Messi.

Great footwork from the Argentina captain, who supplies Di Maria. A cute turn from him, before he smashes the ball goalwards from just outside the box…

But it hits Messi in the back!

World Cup 2022: Poland 0-0 Argentina

8 mins: Messi with a niggling challenge just outside the Poland box, and he wins the ball, before shifting it onto his right foot…

He doesn’t have a lot of space to work with, and his strike is a bit weak, bobbling into Szczesny’s gloves.

It was from around that spot that Messi scored against Mexico…
