Based on his strong performance last time out, Degenek has a strong chance of retaining his spot, providing he is fit enough to go again. Changes further up the field seem more likely based on the short turnaround, with No. 10 Ajdin Hrustic yet to start a match at this World Cup and looking like a good option to freshen up the side at the expense of Riley McGree. Craig Goodwin was replaced at half-time against Denmark to cast some doubt over whether he'll start against Argentina, with Awer Mabil looming as a good alternative if needed.

"Coach Graham Arnold has led Australia into the last 16 of the World Cup for only the second timeAustralia boss Graham Arnold is preparing his country for only their second World Cup knockout game ever. They lost 1-0 to Italy in the last 16 in 2006. "No disrespect to Argentina, but it's 11 v 11, and it's 10 blue shirts against 10 yellow shirts, and it's a battle, " he said. "It's a war, and we've got to fight that and make sure that the boys are in great physical shape, great mental shape, they've got great energy, and we go out there and give it all guns blazing.
Here, we take a look how both teams might line up for their Round of 16 clash. Argentina vs Australia lineups Australia assistant coach Rene Meulensteen has criticised FIFA's scheduling of the World Cup after the Socceroos and Argentina were given just three days to prepare for their Round of 16 clash. The two sides rounded off their group-stage campaigns on Wednesday local time in Qatar, but had little time to celebrate that success before starting preparations for their meeting on Saturday. Meulensteen said of the situation: "How can the FIFA organisation [do this] at such a high-prestige tournament? The four-day turnovers were already short and after the group stages they go even shorter.

Messi set for 1, 000th career game in Australia tieArgentina forward Lionel Messi is set to make the 1, 000th appearance of his career in Saturday's World Cup last-16 tie with Australia.

Messi, 9. Alvarez Injured: None Suspended: None With so little time to prepare, changes are likely for Scaloni, though he will be reluctant to make too many alterations to a side that dominated against Poland.

Argentina vs Australia World Cup lineup, starting 11 for Round of 16 match at Qatar 2022Lionel Messi's bid for World Cup glory remains on track after Argentina overcame a shock defeat to Saudi Arabia to escape their group in style. Victories over Mexico and Poland ensured Lionel Scaloni's men in fact ended up topping Group C, and reminded the world why they were so hotly tipped prior to the tournament kicking off. But the task now for La Albiceste is to ensure their dream isn't derailed by an Australia side that surprised many in edging past Denmark and Tunisia to qualification from a Group D also containing France.

Stoke City's Souttar, who was born in Aberdeen and used to be a Scotland youth international, has been one of the stars of the Socceroos' surprise run to the knockout rounds. "Messi has been one of the two standout players in the world [along with Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo], and it will be a long time until we see their likes again.
