Mexico and Poland Begin Their 2022 World Cup Campaign in Doha

Mexico vs Poland - 22/11/2022

The second match to be played in Group C of the 2022 World Cup is between Mexico and Poland on the 22nd of November. The game will take place at Stadium 974 and this a fixture between two teams who will be hoping to reach the knockout stages.

Mexico come into the World Cup having won only 2 of their 6 most recent games. Only one of the 6 fixtures was competitive and it came in the CONCACAF Nations League. Mexico were held to a 1-1 draw by Jamaica but Mexico did not play their strongest team.

In terms of their most recent fixtures, all their last 5 games have been friendly matches. Mexico have beat Peru and Iraq, with both matches played at a neutral venue.

However, there have been 3 defeats in those 5 games, with the losses coming against Paraguay, Colombia, and Sweden. Again, all 3 matches were played at a neutral venue.

Looking at World Cup qualification and Mexico went undefeated in their final 6 fixtures. Mexico finished second in their World Cup qualifying group, level on points with Canada and 3 points clear of the United States.

Their final 5 World Cup qualifying games were not particularly exciting to watch and there were under 2.5 goals scored in all 5 fixtures. Mexico failed to score a goal in 2 of those 5 matches and only managed 1 goal in 2 of the remaining 3 games.

Poland travelled to Qatar on the back of a 1-0 win over Chile in a friendly match played in November. Their most recent competitive fixtures have come in the Nations League and Poland beat Wales 1-0 away from home to keep their place in the top Nations League groups.

However, Poland have won only 2 of their last 6 matches. They have tasted defeat at home against Belgium and Netherlands and suffered a heavy 6-1 loss in Belgium.

Poland did manage to pick up a point in the Nations League thanks to a 2-2 draw in the Netherlands.

Poland finished second in their UEFA World Cup qualifying group, 6 points behind England. They suffered 2 defeats in their 10 qualifying matches, with the defeats coming against England and Hungary.

Poland have seen under 2.5 goals in each of their last 4 games and they have scored only 2 goals in those 4 fixtures.

Team news and Mexico have their full squad of players available for selection. Raul Jimenez has been working his way back to full fitness but may have to settle for a place on the bench.

Poland also have their full squad available and will start with Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski in attack, supported by Piotr Zieliński in midfield.

This has the makings of being a cagey game and both teams know the importance of this match in terms of finishing in the top two of the group.

A single goal could make all the difference and Poland have the edge in terms of the strikers, meaning they could claim a vital 1-0 win.
