We go over game time and TV channel info for Tuesday’s World Cup match between Mexico and Poland in the Group Stage.

Soccer: World Cup-Poland vs Senegal
Robert Lewandowski will be an x-factor in Poland’s opening match against Mexico.

Mexico and Poland kickoff Group C play at the 2022 World Cup when they face off at 11 a.m. ET. The two most likely second-place teams behind Argentina will very quickly know how their World Cup trip is likely to go. If either team fails to at least force a draw, it will be an uphill climb the rest of the way.

Mexico is FIFA’s No. 13 ranked team in the world and is looking to build on its 2018 round of 16 exit, which was a 2-0 loss to Brazil. Head coach “Tata” Martino knows his squad needs to once again reach the round of 16 to avoid questions about his job. The issue for him is that his team is getting older and less healthy with no clear reinforcements on the way. El Tri will need a big tournament from “Chucky” Lozano, who helped down Germany in the 2018 World Cup. They’ll also need goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa to stand on his head, especially against a Polish attack that features star goal scorer Robert Lewandowski.

Poland, FIFA’s No. 26 team, has lost its last three World Cup openers. In his only other World Cup appearance in 2018, the 34-year-old Lewandowski was shut out. In what very well could be his last World Cup appearance, the Barcelona star must shine brightest, beginning with the team’s pivotal first match. In a match that appears on paper to be a toss up, Lewandowski’s theatrics could make all the difference.
