In a do-or-die clash, Argentina beat Mexico by 2-0 in the FIFA World Cup 2022 group stage clash after suffering a shock defeat against Saudi Arabia.

All four teams can still make it out of an enticing Group C, which consists of Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.

If Argentina beats Poland in the final group-stage match, they will qualify for the knockouts. 

La Albiceleste could progress with a draw, however, and would be through in that instance if Mexico and Saudi Arabia also share the spoils.

Yet, if Argentina is held and Saudi Arabia beats Mexico, then Messi's team will be eliminated.

If Mexico win and Argentina draw, it goes to goal difference.

Argentina's destiny lies in their own hands. Win the game and qualify for the knockouts. 

Any other result apart from a win will only complicate Argentina's chance of making the Round of 16.
