How Poland and Argentina are expected to line-up in World Cup group decider


rgentina head coach Lionel Scaloni is again expected to tinker with his team as they face Poland for a place in the World Cup knockout stages.

It should be a case of as you were for captain Lionel Messi and fellow forwards Lautaro Martinez and Angel Di Maria, leaving Julian Alvarez and Paulo Dybala again on the bench.

But it’s a different story further back as Leandro Paredes pushes for a recall, after sitting out against Mexico, and Cristian Romero tries to regain his centre-back spot from Lisandro Martinez.

At full-back, Nicolas Tagliafico or Marcos Acuna are vying for the left-back role while Juan Foyth is one of three names hoping to get the nod on the right.

For Poland, it’s a more straightforward picture with head coach Czeslaw Michniewicz likely to name an unchanged team after a resolute win over Saudi Arabia.

Robert Lewandowski will be looking to add to his tally after finally scoring a first ever World Cup goal last time out.

Poland predicted XI: Szczesny; Cash, Glik, Kiwior, Bereszynski; Zielinski, Bielik, Krychowiak, Frankowski; Milik, Lewandowski

Argentina predicted XI: E. Martinez; Molina, Otamendi, Li. Martinez, Tagliafico; Fernandez, Paredes, De Paul; Messi, La. Martinez, Di Maria
