One could argue that none of the FIFA World Cup Groups are as balanced as Group C. In fact, each of this group’s participants has qualified to the knockout stages of the World Cup in the past. What this means is that we’re in for a series of cut-throat clashes from which only two teams will survive.
The FIFA World Cup Group C will feature two-time World Cup winners Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland — four teams that are all capable of packing a good punch.

WHO EXACTLY ARE THE PARTICIPANTS OF GROUP C?
Argentina, Mexico and Poland are some of the most talented teams participating in the FIFA World Cup 2022, with Saudi Arabia somewhat lagging behind in that respect. Nevertheless, we all enjoy a good underdog story, and Saudi Arabia might just deliver it if the Middle Eastern nation can perform at its very best.
The FIFA World Cup 2022 will kick off in Qatar, which is set to be the first Middle Eastern country to ever host a World Cup. Group C is set to kick things off a day later than the tournament’s debut date, 22 November. Argentina will face Saudi Arabia at Lusail Stadium at 10:00 GMT, while Mexico and Poland will lock horns on the same day at Stadium 974 at 16:00.
|National Team||FIFA Ranking||FIFA Zone||Place in Eliminations|
|Mexico||9||CONCACAF||CONCACAF third round runners-up|
|Poland||26||UEFA||UEFA play-offs Path B winners|
|Saudi Arabia||49||AFC||AFC third round Group B winners|
Two-time World Cup winner Argentina will be looking to storm Group C after securing its place in the action for the thirteenth edition of the World Cup in a row. Although the VAR won’t leave room for any ‘Hand of god’ moments, Argentina will be confident about dazzling its way to the knockout stages through the likes of Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martínez and Julián Álvarez.
Wedged in between the two powerhouses of Group C is none other than Gerard Martino’s Mexico. The North American nation is on its eight consecutive World Cup run that, however, hasn’t yet bore better fruit than its quarter-final achievements in 1970 and 1986. Wolverhampton’s Raúl Jiménez and Napoli’s Hirving Lozano will certainly be looking to change that ahead of their arduous task of beating Poland in their debut match.
Dubbed as the team to beat in the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2022, Poland will be vying for Group C’s top spot — with Argentina unequivocally in its crosshairs. After a scintillating season in the Bundesliga, frontman Robert Lewandowski will be Poland’s biggest threat in front of goal, whereas Piotr Zielinski will be looking to assist his compatriot as much as possible. Can the Polish nation improve on its 1982 third place result in the World Cup?
Underdogs like Saudi Arabia usually have a hard time finding their space in such a talent-laden World Cup Group, but as we all know, every game starts off at the scoreline of 0-0. This Middle Eastern country’s primary goal will be to surprise its opponents and catch them on the back foot, and who knows? Maybe the 1994 knockout-stage qualification could happen once again.
BETTING TIPS AND ODDS ON YOUR GROUP C FAVOURITES
