Mexico are one of only three teams not to have scored at the World Cup, but they can still sneak into the last 16 if they beat Saudi Arabia and the other tie in Group C goes their way. Victory for Herve Renard’s men would, however, secure a place in the knockouts. Here’s how to watch a Saudi Arabia vs Mexico live stream from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

After kicking off the tournament with a 2-1 win over Argentina, going out in the group stage is simply not an option for the Saudis, who have played an entertaining style of football throughout. They did everything but score against Poland, setting up 16 shots, and were duly punished for their wastefulness. The Green Falcons have arguably been the biggest surprise package in the World Cup and their sizeable following will be out in force for this one.
A stalemate against Poland and a 2-0 defeat against Argentina means Mexico’s fate is no longer in their own hands, and Gerardo Martino is feeling the heat. El Tri must win to have any chance of going through, but to do so, they must first achieve something they have yet to do in Qatar: get the ball into the back of the net.
Having struggled with hip problems all season, Raul Jimenez’s minutes have been strictly managed, but Mexico have been toothless without him and whether he’s 100% fit or not, the Wolves man could be their best hope.
