Team news

The big decision for Czeslaw Michniewicz is whether to continue with a front two of Robert Lewandowski and Arek Milik, or make use of one of the extra midfielders in the Poland squad (opens in new tab).

Enzo Fernandes, one of the least experienced members of this Argentina squad (opens in new tab), could be handed a start after his goal off the bench against Mexico.

Elsewhere, Nahuel Molina is in line to get the nod ahead of Gonzalo Montiel at right-back.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch World Cup 2022 football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for the World Cup 2022, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the World Cup 2022, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
