Will Mexico break the trend?
Mexico have been knocked out of the last seven World Cups in the round of 16. El Tri have had no problem getting out of the group stage, but they have not progressed beyond the second round since when they hosted the competition in 1986.
Mexico have usually been dominant in regional competitions in CONCACAF but has lost their last two finals to the United States in the Gold Cup and the Nations League. El Tri also finished behind Canada in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign. An improvement will be required in Qatar 2022 for Mexico to break the trend.
Mexico Top Scorers FIFA World Cup Qualifying
Mexico are going through a period of transition at the moment. Most of their key players are past the prime stages in their respective careers such as Andres Guardado, Hector Herrera, Hector Moreno and arguably Raul Jimenez. Jimenez will be their key man in Qatar 2022 because of his success in front of the goal and he will be supported by Hirving Lozano and Jesus Manuel Corona. Whether it is enough for a deep surge is unlikely as El Tri lacks sufficient depth and quality in the ranks to trouble the elite sides.
Manager Gerardo Martino is an excellent coach with an impressive CV since inheriting the reins in 2019, but he and his team will have to be flawless.
Lewandowski or bust for Poland?
Poland have been eliminated at the group stage in their last three appearances at the World Cup, finishing bottom of their group in 2018. They’ve not reached the second phase of the tournament since 1986.
Their form in the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers secured a second-place finish behind England in their group before advancing to the knockout stage. Poland were given a walkover against Russia before easing past Sweden with a 2-0 triumph to book their place in Qatar 2022. They will have to up the ante in Group C.
Poland Top Scorers FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualification
Poland are blessed with one of the best strikers in the world with Lewandowski in the final third. As long as he is on the pitch, Poland have a chance in every game they play in Qatar World Cup 2022. There is talent available in support such as Swiderski, Piotr Zielinski and Jozwiak, but they will need to raise the levels of their performances at the World Cup. There are issues in the backline with a lack of experience and depth.
Manager Czeslaw Michniewicz was only appointed in January but steered his side through to the World Cup. However, he faces a massive challenge to get them out of the group stage.
