Tuesday will see four matches in one match day for the first time in the 2022 World Cup, and there are some great matches in store.
2018 champions France begin their title defense, while highly imaginative Argentina will be looking to make their mark early in the day. Denmark will also meet Tunisia, who are scheduled to face Mexico and Poland in the late afternoon.
Here’s how you can catch all four games in the UK.
Led by Lionel Messi, Argentina are favorites for many World Cup viewers this year. Having finally won the Copa America in 2021, the South American giants kick off this tournament against a Saudi team, making their sixth World Cup appearance.
The La Skaloneta match is just one match of equaling Italy’s record 37-match unbeaten run in international football and we wouldn’t expect that to end on Tuesday. They are the heavy favorites to take on the Green Falcons and make a statement in their opening game.

They may be perennial dark horses, but don’t take your eyes off this year’s Denmark. The Danes are a strong team and have enjoyed success both in the Nations League and at Euro 2020. They are the big favorites here against Tunisia, with the likes of Christian Eriksen and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg ready to get involved.
The Tunisian team boast Montpellier striker Wahbi Khazri and captain Youssef Msakni, but they, along with Australia, are clear underdogs in Group D.

A pair of world Cup Underachieving players clash in Group C when Mexico take on Poland at Stadium 974.
Mexico slipped out in the round of 16 in the last seven World Cups, while Poland were knocked out in the group stage for the last time in 1986. Robert Lewandowski – yet to enjoy a distinguished international tournament – hopes his side can carry on this time around.
However, they are short of losing against Gerardo Martino’s Mexico, who could make a bigger offensive quality to win the match.

Hero rulers France They’ve been dealt an incredibly strong hand on the injury front as they attempt to defend this title.
Stars such as Karim Benzema, Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante are absent from the French squad, who will nonetheless be keen to show that the squad’s other stars can step up when they take on Australia.
Australia last won their group stage match in 2010, although they made things difficult for France when they met in 2018 – only Aziz Behech’s own goal gave Didier Deschamps the victory.
