Argentina vs Saudi Arabia: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch
Argentina's campaign in the 2022 World Cup begins with a clash against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.
The Albiceleste won the coveted trophy in 1978 and 1986, and Lionel Messi will want to repeat the trick in what will surely be his last dance on the global stage. Argentina lifted the Copa America in 2021 and are currently on a 36-match unbeaten run. They have won their last five fixtures, keeping five clean sheets and scoring 16 goals in the process.
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia will be hoping to at least match their feat of the 1994 World Cup when they crawled out of the group stage before exiting in the round of 16. They have won just two of their last 10 matches across all competitions and face a stern test against Lionel Scaloni's side.

Alarm bells started ringing when it was reported that Lionel Messi had trained individually. But the air has been cleared that the PSG forward is not suffering from any injury and it was simply by choice.
Lisandro Martinez and Exequiel Palacios were also working indoors but should be fit to feature. However, Joaquin Correa has been withdrawn with Thiago Almada taking his place.
