Argentina v Saudi Arabia LIVE commentary: Lionel Messi starts as he looks to lead his side to World Cup glory but Julian Alvarez and Lisandro Martinez benched

    Argentina will get their World Cup campaign underway against Saudi Arabia today as Lionel Messi looks to inspire his side to glory.

    The current Copa America champions head to Qatar as one of the favourites to lift the trophy.

    The Albicelestes were last crowned world champions in 1986, but have a squad stacked full of talent and will fancy their chances of going far.

    And if they get off to a good start against Saudi Arabia, you would expect them to get out of the group with relative ease.

    Meanwhile, their opponents are set for their second consecutive World Cup and will hope to build on their one win in Russia.
