How is Argentina doing?

They were out, but the Argentines got into the round of 16 again, suffering the well-known Scaloneta, they got through the group stage after starting with a stumble against Arabia, with two victories they got the six points.

With Mexico they won by two goals, as well as against Poland being their last test, where they were obliged to win and seal their pass.

The scorer of the moment of this Albiceleste team has been Lionel Messi with two goals, but the ten comes to this meeting with a missed penalty against goalkeeper Tomasz Szczęsny, which could have given Messi his third goal in a World Cup.

The Argentine national team will seek to break its negative streak of the last World Cup in Russia 2018, with that elimination against France, the Argentines want to reach again a final since Brazil 2014 have not achieved it and being in 1986 the last time they were champions.

But before the forecasts that place Argentina as a candidate to take the World Cup, coach Lionel Scaloni extinguishes the illusions, being clear that nothing is won yet.

"We played a good game and we have to continue. We are not candidates for anything, we are a difficult team that will fight. It's not right to think that by winning today we will be champions".

In addition, captain Lionel Messi clarified that the match against Austria will not be easy, they will try to prepare in the best way, thinking that they must go game by game.

"The match against Australia will be very difficult. Anyone can beat anyone, everything is very even. We have to prepare the match in the best way as we always do. We have to take it one game at a time, now another World Cup is starting.

How does Australia arrive?

The Australians come to this match after a defeat against France, in their first game the French beat Australia by four goals to one, but in the second game a victory against Tunisia gave them hope to qualify, in the last game against Denmark they won their ticket to the round of 16 with a goal by Mathew Leckie.

But before this surprise, the Australians were close to being out of the World Cup, because of that play-off against Peru, which was resolved on penalties and today Australia can celebrate this great feat.

Midfielder Riley McGree spoke to the media after giving that pass to goal Leckie, the Australian considers himself ready for the next game and is very happy for the achievement to reach the round of 16.

"We are very proud to achieve this, to be Australian and we really appreciate the support from the fans. We're ready to face the next game, we'll go out there with the same belief in ourselves and see what happens."

The Socceroos had not advanced to the round of 16 since the 2006 World Cup in Germany, in 2010, 2014 and 2018 they crashed out in the first round. This feat in Qatar 2022 will be repeated again by being second in their group D.
