Sports desk: Argentina was 'victim of accident' in their first match in Qatar World Cup. Because after the 2-1 defeat to Saudi Arabia, there was a stir around the world. However, forgetting those memories, Argentina is going to face Mexico in the second match of the group stage today (Saturday) at 1 pm.
Today's match is a life-and-death battle for Argentina as they are on the back foot after losing the first match. Because Lionel Messi's team will be eliminated from the World Cup if they lose this match. That's what Argentina forward Lautaro Martinez said about the state of the team at the press conference ahead of the Mexico match.
"It's like a final for us now," Martinez said. Because this is a match that will show our faith in this World Cup. Losing the first match was a huge blow to our morale, but we are a strong team, very united.'
Martinez does not want to make the same mistakes he made against Saudi Arabia against Mexico. 'We were very optimistic and I think we lost by a small margin, due to our own mistakes. We have studied our next opponents and I think we are ready.'
