How to watch Socceroos vs Argentina in Australia: Time, TV channel, live streams for World Cup 2022 match

It wasn’t supposed to happen, yet it has, the Socceroos are into the 2022 World Cup Round of 16. 

After their disastrous opening match loss to France, many had written them off, including many of their own fans and media, yet two courageous 1-0 wins over Tunisia and Denmark saw the Socceroos progress to the knockout rounds for the first time since 2006, sparking scenes of joy and pandemonium across the country.

Their reward for qualifying against the odds is a date with Argentina and arguably the greatest player of all-time – Lionel Messi. La Albiceleste shrugged off a shock first game loss to Saudi Arabia to secure back-to-back 2-0 wins over Mexico and Poland and finish top of Group C, with Messi scoring twice and excelling once again with his attacking play.

The South American side will be heavy favourites given their world class talent and the fact Australia has expended a lot of energy in their two wins, but Australian sports teams always thrive as the underdogs, and they already have confounded expectations at the tournament

Here’s everything you need to know to watch this massive match in Australia on TV or online via live stream.
