This Wednesday, Argentina defeated Poland for the last date of group C of the World Cup Qatar 2022 thus achieving their classification to the round of 16. A tough match against the team led by Robert Lewandowski which moved it to second place in the standings.
It should be noted that Lionel Messi and company needed a victory to advance not only to the phase, but also to avoid the favorite France in the round of 16. The same team that eliminated the ‘Albiceleste’ in this instance four years ago in Russia 2018 and that later ended up winning.
The goals for Lionel Scaloni’s team came through Alexis Mac Allister after 46 minutes after a pass into the Polish area by Nahuel Molina. The second goal was scored Julian Alvarez at 67′ after a great assist on the left sector by Enzo Fernández and thus seal the pass to the next instance.

As expected, the reactions did not take long to arrive inside and outside Stadium 974 from the Argentine fans, who staged scenes of joy and emotion with the classification. Now, the next rival to beat is Australia from Andrew Redmayneremembered for leaving Peru out of the World Cup with his save.
Indeed, the special envoy of Grupo La República, Carlos Salinas, managed to talk to some of the fans who were leaving the stadium happy, reminding them that it was the Australians who left out the World Cup peruvian team.
“We are going to beat Australia for Peru”, “They are all friends of Peru”, were some of the messages to then do the unthinkable: harangue their country amid particular songs.
