Day 1 of the 2022 World Cup
Stadium 974 Rass Abou Aboud
Score: Mexico 0-0 Poland
After the surprise loss to Argentina, Mexico and Poland had the opportunity to take a big step towards qualifying for the round of 16 of the competition. Guillermo Ochoa allowed the Mexicans to get the point of the draw.
Poland and Mexico leave good friends after a very indecisive meeting and leave the first place of group C to Saudi Arabia. Robert Lewandowski had the opportunity to unlock his counter in the World Cup and put Poland on the right track by obtaining a penalty. But Guillermo Ochoa, always excellent in selection, superbly stopped the attempt of the FC Barcelona striker who is decidedly cursed in this competition. The attackers failed to show themselves off against the strong Polish and Mexican defences. Mexico will probably qualify in the next game against Leo Messi’s Argentina. Poland have not passed the group stage of the World Cup since 1986 and will have to win their next match against Saudi Arabia to hope to break this curse.
