MADRID, November 30 (.) –
The teams from France, the current world champion, and Argentina will not meet in the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar as they did four years ago in Russia, and they will face Poland and Australia respectively.
The ‘Albiceleste’ needed to beat the Polish team to be first in Group C and thus avoid Didier Deschamps’ men who already had their first place in D secured and were waiting for a rival, who would finally be Robert Lewadowski and company, who qualified as second despite to fall before the two-time world champion and because Mexico lacked a goal. The duel between the French and the Poles will be on Sunday, December 4 at 4:00 p.m. at the Al Thumana Stadium.
For its part, the team coached by Lionel Scaloni will have a theoretically affordable crossing to be in the quarterfinals against Australia, which qualified for the second time in its history for the round of 16 thanks to its 0-1 victory against Denmark. The clash will be on Saturday 3 at 8:00 p.m. at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium.
