Argentina beat Poland 2-0 in their last group game of the World Cup in Qatar, but since Poland are also promoted to the round of 16, both teams could live with the result.

Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny suffered yet another defeat on Tuesday night. The goalkeeper from Juventus Turin had prevented a higher defeat with his saves. Among them was a penalty he was responsible for against Lionel Messi.

A penalty that, in his opinion, would not have been one. So while the referee was checking the video images, Szczesny allowed himself to be tempted to make an impromptu bet on the pitch. “We (Messi and Szczesny, note) spoke before the penalty. I told him that I would bet him 100 euros that the referee wouldn’t give the penalty,” he told TV2 Sport.

Grinning, Szczesny added: “I don’t know if that’s allowed at the World Cup, I’ll probably be banned for it, but I don’t care right now.” He won’t pay Messi the 100 euros anyway. “I’m sure he doesn’t care,” said the goalkeeper, laughing.
