Australia have beaten the odds to make their way into the World Cup 2022 knockout stages. The side overcame a first game drubbing in the France v Australia match to pick up two 1-0 wins in the Tunisia v Australia and Australia v Denmark games, and book their place in the knockout round.

But now they face arguably the toughest test yet, coming up against an in-form Argentina side. The South American champions looked impressive and in-control against Poland, and will be keen for more of the same against Australia. 

There is extra expectation on the Argentine side this time out, as legend Lionel Messi plays in what could be his last ever World Cup. Australia will be only too glad to crash the party.
