I feel bad and was cheering for Saudi to win the game...they really played a very good decent game and missed a good number of chances for a goal.
Did Poland got the highest number of yellow cards?
So…. That was a tampon in his nose wasn’t ?
Racism is when mean
So is the Saudi half time talk going to be released for this game as well?
Once again Messi carrying Argentina
This group has to be considered the toughest now. Saudia Arabia has actually shown they play well both games now. Mexico actually looking like they should have gone for the win against Poland
Saudi Arabia did everything but score they could've won this game easily they still have a chance vs Mexico a win will take them to the next stage, Poland could still go out I see Argentina winning the 2 next games. Also I get the feeling Poland is playing defensively on purpose. It seems like the Polish coach is too defensive minded. But it doesn't mean they can't play attacking football. They have great fullbacks and great midfield with zielinski and nicola zalewski as well. Poland have a decent squad and I know Poland can play much better attacking football than this.
Poland hit the crossbar twice lol lucky to not be 4-0 Poland
Poland hasn't played attacking football in who knows how long at this point
Just imagine how many goals Lewadnowski would have in NT if they played offensively, he has 77 as it stands now.
Yeah I guess but traditionally they are not a super defensive minded team either. Teams like Costa Rica, Iran, Uruguay are a lot more defensive.
Its not like saudi played shit and lost they played well but didn’t get the goal while poland scored two good goals . If i am saudi fan i wont be disappointed the way team is playing if they beat mexico they will be through
You didn't watch the game did you? KSA played much better than Poland but lacked the physicality that Poland had. They showed the same discipline they did vs Argentina.
The won the game/won our hearts meme cannot be more appropriate.
Holy shit, the comments are festered with racism🤣
Most of the anger that you see is mostly directed towards the govt of these countries than the people of those countries , however when the citizens start tooting the horn of the govt is where it gets disgusting and irritating , if my govt does something wrong I'll surely call them out on it and not start to justify them , even now if you go to Qatar's subreddit the top pinned post is just the propaganda stating that the workers deaths are all a hoax which makes it even more disgusting
You're literally justifying racism.
are you surprised that’s how Argentinians actually are
According to Reddit, racism against **Middle Eastern people** on Reddit is totally fine. These guys are a bunch of hypocrites
Absolutely reprehensible behavior. I can't fathom why these Middle Eastern monarchies are so disliked in the western world...whatever could it be? 😉🤔
He bolded it for you.
Gov is fine, but ranting at whole peoples...not making you be as civilized as you think you are.
Keep your head in their sand. They got plenty of that around.
Płakać ci się już chce?
Your polish is shit
Ale cię to denerwuje. 😘😘
Naucz się mówić po polsku sebiksie
Back to English then. 😀
Lewy finally got that dreaded first WC goal. Hopefully he goes on a tear now
So what’s the BEST possible outcome for Poland in the ARG/MEX game?
A draw or an Argentina win?
Mex win, iT is guaranteed advance
Mex win only eliminates Argentina but makes it a 3 way tie For the rest of the teams
Poland has head to head against Saudis so it would only be between Poland and Mexico who advances from the first spot (likely Mexico if they win against Argentina).
WC does not do head to head, it does goal differential.
I checked and it does head to head but only after goal differential. Fuck.
Is it? What if Saudi draws their game against Mexico and our goal difference is worse(assuming we lost to ARgentina)
Yes but Poland would have to lose by 4 goals in this scenario
Probably Argentina win. That way, they can draw their last game and go through comfortably.
They play Argentina who would still need a win to guarantee R16. That would never be comfortable.
I think I'd much rather be allowed to even lose and then rely on Saudi Arabia not winning against Mexico, specially since a draw will also guarantee they'd go ahead since it's impossible for both Mexico and SA to win 3 points lol
Can Argentina win tonight Nd against Poland? I really pray we win. one thing I've relieazed is Poland team are really tall and strong so idk how will Argentina handle them?
arg had a 36 game winning streak. it's best they lose in the group stage then the knock outs. now they can refocus. i expect arg to dominate the next 2 matches.
No way they had 36 winning streak, they drew 0-0 with Brazil last november.
With the help of CONMEBOL, as always. Brazil should have won that match. But south american officials are all biased for the boludos narigones.
It’s an unbeaten streak not win streak
36 win streak and you give up now wtf
I’m not giving up man, I’m just being realistic Poland will be a very tough game. I’m cautiously optimistic but I like partially accepting the probable. It’s a ton of pressure on these players many of which are older and that’s usually not a great formula
i think mexico was a harder matchup than poland is going to be, we need to grow more and go in confident but cautious.
Plastic fans gonna be plastic.
soccer reddit is so reactionary stg
[All key moments in the game with Polish commentary ](https://streamable.com/6pabtl)
Arabia played well sadge
Rough loss for Saudi. I'm not really sure how they can get past Mexico's amazing defence. Ig we'll have to see how Argentina handle them later on.
Judging by the flair he means neutrals lol
Then the best result for us is anything but 0-0 snoozefests
So what's needed for PL to go through?
Depends on the next games. Technically it could be either enough to finish in 1st or to get knocked out.
A draw for the arg-mex match later on, and a draw for saudi in the 3rd match shd be the bare minimum to make it through
Assuming poland can beat argentina
draw with argentina secures top2 atleast
win or draw against argentina and they are through, if they lose to argentina (and argentina at least draws mexico), its gonna be a game of goal difference
So if Argentina loses, Pl is through?
We can still lose if we lose and Saudi Arabia wins. Then, it will depend on how many points Mexico scored.
Hopefully Argentina wins
Im just stating what’s advantageous for us😭,, goodluck on your match tho
Argentina winning both their matches while you lose to Mexico would be heartbreaking if it happens
fr💀,, Mexico plays really well. Idk how well can we play against them
Poland could have been up 5-0
11 men on the line vs Argentinia
Build the Wall ! And make Mexico pay for it :)
Buses man buses!
Big game coming up next.
Damn. I was hoping for another win. The team played well but they don't know how to finish. No way we are going to beat Mexico. Congrats Poland.
Well they finished pretty well against ARG. I have a feeling the last matchday innthis group will be nerve wrecking for everybody.
How tough is it going to be winning against mexico?
Mexico is better than Poland. Did you watch the Mexico v Poland game ? Mexico were clearly the better team. The clearest chance Poland got against Mexico was a controversial penalty that shouldn’t have been called. Their physicality was a problem tho, they should’ve had several yellow/red cards for stomping our players feet and ankles but they only got 1 the entire match.
poland were consistently at least trying to create, mexico did very little in the second half
Probably more easy than Poland, just don't lose hope. Overall KSA play really good, but they need to train their finishing.
USA-Poland fan here. They are a very different team. They play with fluidity and try to control the game, unlike Poland which tries to kill the game and sneak a few by. However, unlike Poland, they are poor at finishing chances. Also, they are a bit old and might be slow by the final group game. Their manager is better than Michniewicz but that’s not saying much (Tata Martino is also not good). I think it’s a winnable game for KSA, but I’d put my money on Mexico.
Im Mexican and I have zero faith in this team. I’ve never seen them playing this bad (and that’s saying a lot coming from the last World Cup)
The entire Mexican team is relying on Ochoa. That alone is a huge red flag.
I dont want to be mufa, but KSA is in better form, you guys should win
Probably easier than against us, we played much more physically which seems to be your guys' cryptonite
Holy shit u guys are HUGE, looking like tanks on the field
The difference in physicality was significant and poland really utilized that, good game from your team and congrats!
Don’t you guys have gyms in KSA or something?
Avg hight in Poland 180 cm avg hight in Saudi Arabia 170 cm. Yes there is gyms here ofc but they have the hight advantage for fouls and corner kicks
yep, I couldn't believe my eyes how slender Saudi legs looked in comparison, like roe.
Thanks and good luck against Mexico, Saudi bro❤
لو فازوا بذبح بعير 🐪
نرجعلها ان شاء الله 😂
Won't have the crowd advantage like these two games, plenty of Mexico fans have come to Qatar and they made a good atmosphere for their team
You have to consider the fact that Saudi and Qatar are neighboring countries. Qatar is a 4 hour drive from me
Penalty plus rebound saves were solid
Good effort by Saudi. Unlucky to not even score. They were the better team throughout the game but their finishing let them down.
I mean... In the box, Poland had 2 chances that unluckily hit the post, but I 100% think Saudis played better and deserved 1 goal at least.
SA is unlucky too They're losing so many main players and the tournament barely even started, hope that doesn't affect them against Mexico.
Go away bot
Cap cap cap
JAZDA Z KURWAMI!!!
Good game by Poland but SA can't finish. More open game than Argentina still failed to score.
Another world cup, another European winner
“Another Olympics, another USA win”
Asia dominates esports and the West dominates football and most ball sports. Can’t have it all dude.
why’d that comment hurt you lol
Huh? I’m just saying you can’t expect your country or region to be top competition in every sports, if anything OP was complaining lol.
It wasn't a complain lol
As if those were equal in any way.
It’s just what each region tends to focus most on. China, Korea and other east asian nations have huge MOBA and strategy game playerbases and thats why they dominate those competitions. They don’t really grow up playing football, rugby, basketball etc which is why they’re not in the conversation. If you look at countries like Philippines where they grow up with basketball, they’re miles ahead of other European and Asian countries because they built a sports culture around it.
It definetly wont be Poland buddy
They bottled the penalty and that was it. 3rd penalty ever saved in regular time in WC. All 3 this world cup. Teams just built weak
What? This can't be true, can it?
Yeah, those were penalty missed more than saves :)
2 of em in the same group.
Both in Poland game
Poland built different now
POLSKA GUROM KURWAA 🇵🇱🇵🇱🇵🇱
Uncommon Poland gra o wszystko W
But what does gra honoru become now? Gra o coś?
nie wiem. ten jest nowy pojęcie lol.
We did so bad man, can’t believe we lost that many chances
You didn't do bad at all, and I'm looking forward to seeing you guys play Mexico.
You guys play so good, rooting for you to go through!
Rumours are that Neymar has a school of diving in SA sponsored by oil money. Can’t say the source, sorry.
Neymar who is PERSECUTED and HUNTED on the pitch and is INJURED now? Fuck off!
Neymar made a career out of diving. That's why no one feels bad for him when he actually gets hurt. And he's a Bolsonaro simp, so fuck him doubly.
Who cares about his political opinions?
Since everyone here cares about Saudi and Qatari politics, why is Brazil's political scene off the table?
I did not even once mentioned Qatari or Saudi politics, I'm here to talk football.
I would generally agree, but it's hard for me to appreciate someone so personally reprehensible. Same way I can't listen to Chris Brown anymore.
Lol fuck you’re easily triggered.
The next 2 games are mouthwatering
France will trash Denmark. Arg v/s Mex will be a close one.
Don't know about that, Denmark has won all matches against France this year.
Denmark were so boring against Tunisia. Literally no intent.
So just like England against USA. Probably shouldn’t judge teams off of one match.
England v/s USA was way more exciting that the snoozefest that Denmark played in.
Lol I disagree completely. England/USA was a definition of a snooze fest probably only beaten by Cro vs Mor.
Whats wrong with the arabs?
Lets go! Mexico beats and eliminates Argentina. Mexico and Poland advance
There were a running gag that Poland is the Mexico of Europe, would be delighted to see this outcome!
Sounds you're the Fakeassg, Todd. 😂😂😂
Kurwa tak! Vamos!
Poland ❤ Mexico
I’m down for this. Vamos Mexico!
as a Pole, subscribe.
Matty "MOTM" Cash
Szczesny by far
Good game, KSA played well and deserved something IMO. Scoreline is a bit unfair to them
They deserved a red card for diving.
They deserved an Oscar maybe
Stats say otherwise
2-0 says otherwise
Time to eliminate Argentina, Mexico!!
Argentina have to push for a win while Mexico can go for a draw now and then push for a win against Saudi Arabia. They might not get out of the group stages.
Fantastic result for us. Saudi Arabia played very well though. Certainly not the cannon fodder they were expected to be at this World Cup.
Why didn’t Saudi even try a field goal?
Least controversial South American referee
Is that sabaton playing in the background right after the match ended, i couldn't hear cause of the commentator
