DIRECT. World Cup 2022: Saudi Arabia surprises and takes the lead against Argentina

What there is to know

Will Argentina miss its entry into the World Cup on Tuesday, November 22? The Albiceleste started their competition in Group C with a seemingly affordable match against Saudi Arabia at 11 a.m. But after Lionel Messi opened the scoring on a penalty (10th), Lionel Scaloni’s men conceded the equalizer after returning from the locker room (49th), a few minutes before conceding a second goal (53rd). Follow our live.

Make way for world champions. The France team launches its World Cup, at 8 p.m., against Australia, for a remake of the meeting which launched the victorious march towards the second star four years ago. In Russia, Didier Deschamps’ men won 2-1 in pain. In Qatar, the Blues have to face an avalanche of packages, including that of Karim Benzema.

An unprecedented central hinge. For this first match, Didier Deschamps will have to do without Raphaël Varane, still recovering. The coach of the Blues should therefore establish Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konaté. And here are the eleven players who should start the game tonight: Lloris, Pavard, Konaté, Upamecano, L. Hernandez, Tchouaméni, Rabiot, Dembélé, Griezmann, Mbappé, Giroud.

Four matches on the schedule. In addition to France, which ends the day against Australia at 8 p.m. in group D, Argentina opens the ball against Saudi Arabia at 11 a.m. in group C. The other meeting of this group will oppose Mexico to Poland at 5 p.m. Finally, at 2 p.m., the other match of the Blues group will take place between Denmark and Tunisia.
