Lisandro Martinez will feel slightly hard done by to have been on the bench while Julian Alvarez justified his inclusion with a brilliant goal to seal the win in the final group game. Given the performance and result, it’s tough to predict any changes to the starting XI. Alvarez will be expected to be given another start after his emphatic finish against Poland (Photo: Clive Brunskill/Getty Images)Graham Arnold is likely to also field an unchanged side after the resilient, hard-earned 1-0 win against Denmark. It would be harsh for any of the 11 players involved in that game to be dropped to the bench. Craig Goodwin might be worried about losing his place, given his early withdrawal against the Danes but he has plenty of credit in the bank.
Denmark, ranked 10th in the world by football’s governing body FIFA, needed to win the match at the Al Janoub Stadium to progress. There were no goals in the first half as Australia frustrated Denmark’s attempts to move forward and mounted a few counterattacks of their own. It was about the one-hour mark when Leckie broke the deadlock with a moment of magic, outsmarting Danish full-back Joakim Maehle before powering the ball past Kasper Schmeichel and into the far corner of the net. “I’m proud, exhausted, everything really.
Lo mejor de la prГЎctica de la SelecciГіn Argentina antes de enfrentar a Australia La Гєltima prГЎctica de la SelecciГіn Argentina antes de jugar contra Australia La conferencia de prensa de Scaloni antes de Argentina vs. AustraliaEn la previa de la prГЎctica de la SelecciГіn, el entrenador argentino se sentГі en el centro de prensa para hablar ante los medios en conferencia, donde explicГі que para definir el equipo para maГ±ana va a esperar al entrenamiento de hoy e incluso aprovechar el dГa de maГ±ana, siendo que el encuentro es reciГ©n a las 10 de la noche de Qatar.
Alexis Mac Allister and Julian Alvarez’s goals capped a dominant display by coach Lionel Scaloni’s players with tens of thousands of raucous supporters packing the stadium to cheer on their team. Messi never stopped surging forward and posed a menace to Poland throughout the game with his dribbling ability and vision. His glittering performance stood in stark contrast to that of Poland’s star striker Robert Lewandowski who failed to make an impact. Argentina star Lionel Messi was a menace to Poland throughout the match [Jennifer Lorenzini/Reuters] Messi, 35, has admitted that Qatar will probably be his last World Cup while Lewandoski, who is a year younger, has said he is unsure if he will make it to the next tournament, which is being held in North America in 2026.
Como para cada compromiso, el DT define mucho mГЎs por cuestiones tГЎcticas que espera del rival de turno mГЎs que de lo que sucediГі en partidos previos. ГЃngel Di MarГa trabajГі diferenciado en la SelecciГіn Argentina y estГЎ casi descartado ante Australia El posible equipo de la SelecciГіn Argentina para enfrentar a Australia por los octavos de final del Mundial de Qatar 2022Emiliano MartГnez; Nahuel Molina, Cristian Romero, NicolГЎs Otamendi, Marcos AcuГ±a; Rodrigo De Paul, Enzo FernГЎndez, Alexis Mac Allister; Lionel Messi, ГЃlvarez/MartГnez y Papu GГіmez/Correa.
It’s hard to describe the emotions right now, ” Leckie told Australian broadcaster SBS after the game. “We always knew we could do it as a group. We had our doubters but our spirit, our belief, our work ethic and how close we are as a group shows on the pitch. The last 15, 20 minutes, we battled until the end. ” Australia’s Mathew Leckie scores their first goal at FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, Group D, Australia vs Denmark, Al Janoub Stadium, November 30, 2022 [Pool via REUTERS/Alex Grimm] There were celebrations in Australia and Prime Minister Anthony Albanese hailed what he called a “magnificent win”. Australia now face Argentina on Saturday. Argentina vs Poland It was a comfortable win for Argentina over Poland as the South American giants topped Group C and confirmed their place in the knockout stage. Helped by a relentless Lionel Messi, Argentina notched up a 2-0 victory at Stadium 974, with both goals coming in the second half.
Any hopes of the knockout for Arnold’s side hinged on an unlikely pair of wins against Tunisia and Denmark. A goal from Mitchell Duke got Australia halfway there in the first of those games before Mathew Leckie netted the only goal in the second game to send his country into the last 16. Leckie’s winner against Denmark was met with jubilant celebrations (Photo: Stuart Franklin/Getty Images)Players carrying yellow cardsArgentina: Gonzalo Montiel, Marcos Acuna. Australia: Mitchell Duke, Jackson Irvine, Aaron Mooy, Aziz Behich, Milos Degenek. What’s at stake? A place in the quarter-final. As a much more experienced side with some of the world’s best players, it feels like this should be a fairly routine victory for Argentina, and it probably will be. However, Australia cannot be written off and, given Argentina’s slip up against Saudi Arabia, another big shock here is certainly a possibility.

La novedad mГЎs importante es que entrenador repartiГі este viernes 11 pecheras de campo y aparecieron los posibles reemplazantes de Di MarГa, siempre respetando el resto de la delantera (Lionel Messi y JuliГЎn ГЃlvarez). Primero, Scaloni probГі con ГЃngel Correa (uno de los llamados de emergencia ante la lesiГіn de NicolГЎs GonzГЎlez) y despuГ©s con Alejandro GГіmez (solo jugГі desde el arranque en el debut ante Arabia Saudita). Pero eso no fue todo, ya que el DT incursionГі con otros dos cambios: Leandro Paredes reemplazГі a Papu GГіmez para armar una lГnea de cuatro volantes con Rodrigo De Paul, Enzo FernГЎndez y Alexis Mac Allister, como una de las opciones para defender el resultado con pelota en algГєn tramo del partido, y el ingreso de Lautaro MartГnez (el segundo goleador de la era con 21 tantos que ya sumГі un partido en el banco) por ГЃlvarez.
The Socceroos have never reached a quarter-final at the World Cup with their only other involvement in the knockouts coming back in 2006. There are very few teams with more experience at this stage than Argentina. They are looking to make it to the last eight for the 11th time and, with it likely to be Messi’s last, it will have to be some performance from Australia to stop them making the last eight. PredictionArgentina to beat Australia. Argentina to win: 64%. Australia to win 14%. Draw: 22%. To progress to the quarter final: Argentina 76%, Australia 24%. All of our predictions for the 2022 World Cup are powered by Nielsen’s Gracenote, who have used a proprietary football ranking system to estimate the chances of different results for every possible match through extensive simulations, to assess the chances for each team to reach different stages of the tournament.
Despite Poland’s lacklustre performance they still managed to make it through to the knockout phase on goal difference. They will take on France in the last 16 on Sunday. Tunisia vs France France, the defending champions who had already booked their place in the knockout stage, fell to Tunisia in a shock 1-0 defeat at the Education City stadium. France-born Wahbi Khazri scored the only goal of the game in the 58th minute as Tunisia had caused a serious upset. It was only the third victory in six World Cup tournaments for Tunisia. They were eliminated when Australia beat Denmark in the other group match.
La primera parte del entrenamiento estuvo abierta para la prensa, Scaloni no tocГі la defensa, Paulo Dybala tampoco fue parte de la rotaciГіn y todo indica que Di MarГa reaparecerГa directo en la prГіxima instancia si todo sale bien. Cabe recordar que el futbolista de Juventus terminГі con una contractura en el partido ante Polonia, donde fue reemplazado promediando el segundo tiempo, y si bien no tiene lesiГіn muscular, la idea del cuerpo tГ©cnico es no poner su fГsico en riesgo haciГ©ndolo jugar un partido en menos de 72 horas, si es que el zurdo no estГЎ al 100%. MГЎs allГЎ de lo que serГa el cambio obligado de Di MarГa, hay que ver con quГ© mГЎs sorprende Scaloni, que del primer al segundo partido hizo cinco modificaciones en el once, y del segundo al tercero, cuatro.
World Cup recap, day 11: Australia, Argentina make knockout stageThere was celebration and disappointment aplenty on Wednesday as Australia beat Denmark 1-0 and Argentina won 2-0 against Poland. Day 11 of the World Cup in Doha saw wild celebrations as Australia made it to the tournament’s knockout stage for the first time since 2006, while Argentina cruised into the knockout round with a comfortable win over Poland. It was a day of disappointment for Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Denmark, however. Here is a quick recap of all you need to know from day 11 – Wednesday, November 30 – of the Qatar World Cup 2022. Australia vs Denmark A goal by Mathew Leckie gave Australia a 1-0 victory over Denmark and sent the Socceroos through to the last 16 of the World Cup for the first time since 2006.
What time is Argentina vs Australia? The match kicks off at 10pm local time which means it will start at 7pm in the UK and the coverage will be shown on the BBC. In the US, FOX and Telemundo will be showing the match and kick off is at 2pm EST and 11am PT. The game will start at 4pm in Argentina while it will be 6am AEDT on Sunday, December 4 for those watching the game in large parts of Australia. Team newsLionel Scaloni has plenty of decisions to make but none of them forced by injuries. He made a few surprising changes in the win against Poland and could reverse those alterations for the last-16 tie.
Who is likely to await in the next round? The winner of this last-16 tie faces the winner of the match between the Netherlands and the USA which takes place a few hours before this one. Based on the bookmaker’s odds, Louis van Gaal’s side are overwhelming favourites but the USA managed to escape the toughest group (based on FIFA’s rankings) and showed against England that they are no pushovers so it could be a close-run affair. Wider readingAfter a tepid, and really disappointing, start to the World Cup, Argentina’s aggression is back and so is some of their best football.

Predicted line-upsArgentina (4-3-3): (Emiliano) Martinez; Molina, Otamendi, Romero, Acuna; Fernandez, De Paul, Mac Allister; Di Maria, Messi, Alvarez. Australia (4-3-3): Ryan; Degenek, Souttar, Rowles, Behich; Mooy, McGree, Irvine; Leckie, Duke, Goodwin. The story so farArgentina got off to the worst possible start in Group C as they were on the receiving end of arguably the biggest World Cup shock of all time when they were beaten 2-1 by Saudi Arabia after taking the lead. Knowing that they needed a response, they bounced back as expected with a Lionel Messi-inspired win against Mexico where Enzo Fernandez opened his account with an excellent finish. Messi was in the headlines again in the clash against Poland as he missed another World Cup penalty but goals from Alexis Mac Allister and Alvarez saw Argentina over the line. There was hope that Australia would spring a similar shock against France when they opened the scoring but the World Cup holders, through Kylian Mbappe in particular, roared back and won 4-1.
