Rodrigo de Paul Poor FormHeading into the tournament, Rodrigo de Paul was viewed as a surety in the Argentine playing XI. But back-to-back lacklustre performances might compel Argentina's manager Lionel Scaloni to bench him in a must-win game against Poland.

Will Enzo Fernandes Start?Lionel Scaloni has been a bit hesitant to give start to a young star Enzo Hernandes at such a big stage. But the Benfica star had shown proved his mettle in the last game, where his introduction changed the complexion of the whole game. He may start against Poland.

Last Dance For Robert Lewandowski!It might be the last World Cup game for the legendary Polish striker Robert Lewandowski if Poland lose to Argentina. Lewandoski's first goal in World Cup came only a few days ago, when he scored against Saudi Arabia.
