How to watch Argentina vs. Saudi Arabia in USA: Time, TV channel, live streams for World Cup 2022 match

Lionel Messi, playing in his fifth and final FIFA World Cup, will lead Argentina as they begin their hunt for their first World Cup title since 1986 as they take on Saudi Arabia in Group C.

“La Pulga” has stated this World Cup will be his last, as he seeks to reach the heights of Diego Maradona before him. Argentina are considered second-favorites to win the tournament, behind South American rivals Brazil, so they’re believed to have a great chance.

They take on Saudi Arabia, who reached the World Cup by topping their Asian qualification table. The roster for Saudi Arabia features a full compliment of domestic-based players from the Saudi Arabian league, with no players who play for clubs outside the country.

Saudi Arabia share a border with Qatar, and had to make a relatively short trip to begin play at the World Cup, compared to other participating nations who arrived from around the globe.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the match in the United States on TV or online via live stream.
