Socceroos’ World Cup clash with Argentina: Kick off time and where to watch it

The Socceroos have already enjoyed their best ever World Cup campaign, but now face their biggest test when they take on soccer powerhouse Argentina.

Graham Arnold’s uninspired Australian team fooled the critics by beating Tunisia and then Denmark to qualify for the sudden death round of 16 in Doha, Qatar at 6am on Sunday morning (Sydney and Melbourne time).

Their next opponents are as tough as can be – the tournament’s second favorite Argentina, twice World Cup winner and led by superstar Lionel Messi.

While there is little pressure on Australia, this World Cup has seen more setbacks than any other in the tournament’s glittering 92-year history.

And Socceroos fans around the world are hoping to get a repeat of their 1988 Bicentennial Gold Cup result when Australia beat Argentina 4-1.

Never mind that Argentina has won five of the seven games played by the two countries. One was a tie.

Here, Daily Mail Australia has everything you need to know about the Socceroos’ chilling date with destiny.

WHAT TIME IS THE KICK-OFF?

The crucial game between Australia and Argentina kicks off at 6am on Sunday in Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart.

That’s 5am for those in Queensland; 5:30am for residents of Adelaide and South Australia; 4:30am for those in the Northern Territory and 3am for football fans in Western Australia.

The game can be watched on the free broadcast channel SBS, on the TV, via the app or the website.

The Socceroos have won two of their three matches at the tournament so far, shattering predictions from both Aussie and international pundits who expected them to flop after a tough first defeat to France.

It’s a sudden-death match, meaning the winner advances to the quarter-finals, while the loser packs his bags and goes home.

Hardly anyone expects Australia to win, so any pressure they can put on Lionel Scaloni’s team is a bonus.

Every minute the Socceroos, led by hero goalkeeper Matty Ryan, can hold off the Argentines is one minute closer to what could be the biggest World Cup shock ever.
