Mexico vs Saudi Arabia Starting XI

It’s all up for grabs in Group C as Mexico and Saudi Arabia lock horns in a crucial clash tonight. It’s a 7:00 pm GMT kick-off at Lusail Stadium. Here’s the confirmed Mexico vs Saudi Arabia Starting XI.

Mexico shared the spoils with Poland in their opening game in a 0-0 draw. They fell short to Argentina in a 2-0 goals defeat to take the bottom spot of Group C.

However, a win should still push them into the Round of 16, depending on Argentina-Poland’s result and the Goal Difference (GD).

On the other hand, Saudi Arabia need a win to confirm their spot in the last 16. A draw should still qualify them, given Argentina lose or Poland lose by a huge margin.
