How to watch and stream Argentina against Mexico on TV and online in the United States, United Kingdom, Africa & India.

Argentina face Mexico at the Lusail Stadium on Saturday as the Albiceleste aim to get their 2022 World Cup campaign back on track after a shock defeat at the hands of Saudi Arabia, while El Tri also failed to make a winning start as they were held to a goalless draw against Poland.

Lionel Messi and co. succumbed to a 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia that marked the end of Argentina's 36-game unbeaten streak, even as the reigning Copa America champions entered the tournament as major favourites.

For Mexico, meanwhile, veteran goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa kept out Robert Lewandowski's penalty as Tata Martino's side survived to earn a 0-0 draw. It therefore boils down to a crucial clash in Group C as both teams need a win to boost their knockout chances.

Lionel Messi trained separately to the rest of the group on Thursday but Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni confirmed he will be ready for the game against Mexico. Lautaro Martinez and Angel Di Maria should join him in attack despite below-par performances last time out.
