Argentina progress to last 16

Just 68 seconds into the second period, Argentina were ahead, with Mac Allister firing low and hard into the bottom corner to break the deadlock and spark wild scenes.

Making good on their second half dominance, Licha’s nation then added a second with 67 minutes played, as the ever-threatening Alvarez found time and space inside the area to double his countries lead.

The clash then proceeded into a cagey final twenty minutes, with Poland ahead of Mexico in the standings due to their better disciplinary record, despite leading against Saudi Arabia in the group’s other game. Poland secured progression following Mexico’s eventual 2-1 victory, sparking wild scenes on the pitch after the news had filtered through.
