How to Watch Mexico vs. Poland for Free Online

Since we prefer English commentary with no sign-ups or registration, we’ll show you how to watch RTE 2’s free live stream of Poland vs. Mexico on Ireland’s RTE Player.

In order to access this stream, you’ll need an Irish IP address. While that may sound complicated, it really isn’t at all. All you need is a piece of software called a virtual private network (VPN).

Here’s how you can live stream Mexico vs. Poland (and other 2022 FIFA World Cup matches) with a VPN:

1. Get a Surfshark subscription

With a VPN, you can change your IP address to the country of your choice. You can use it to connect to an IP address in Ireland (or any country you prefer), which will let you access all services, websites, and content that only users in the country can get to.

After conducting extensive tests and reviews, we found Surfshark to be a great VPN provider for sports streaming. Here are some reasons why Surfshark is a clear winner:

  • 3,200+ servers in 100 countries (including all countries with our free Mexico vs. Poland streams listed above)

Once you’ve downloaded the app or software package, just log in and connect to a server in Ireland.

You can even pick up Surfshark for a great price thanks to Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, so you can get an 85% discount as well as two extra free months. On the other hand, if you’re only looking for a VPN to stream the 2022 FIFA World Cup, you can make use of Surfshark’s 30-day money-back guarantee.

2. Choose a free live stream

Once you’ve got your VPN, the next step is to settle on a free live stream. You can choose any from our table above, but we recommend Ireland’s RTE Player.

Before you click on the RTE 2 live stream, just make sure that you’re connected to an Irish server with your VPN. Geoblocking restrictions won’t let you access these services if you’re connecting from another country, like the United States, for example.

If you want to watch the Poland vs. Mexico using the RTE Player, follow these steps:

  1. Connect to a Surfshark server in Ireland.
  2. Go to the RTE Live Player.
  3. Click on Channel RTE 2 button during Mexico vs. Poland match.
  4. Sit back and soak in the World Cup soccer action for free in English!
  5. Alternatively, you can connect to any VPN server of your choice. For example, if you want to use Servus TV to watch the match, just connect to a server in Germany. For SRF ZWEI‘s live stream, you’d need to connect to a server in Switzerland.

Pro tip: If you’re running into problems accessing a stream, open a new incognito or private browser window, or try using a more privacy-friendly browser like Mozilla.

Mexico vs. Poland: What to Expect

Both teams will look to get their World Cup campaign started on the right foot. With Argentina widely expected to top Group C, Mexico and Poland are harboring strong hopes of making it to the knockout rounds.

Mexico comes into the World Cup devoid of the excitement that defined their recent World Cup teams. El Tri had a difficult qualifying campaign, losing to both Canada and the United States, but eventually found their way to Qatar. Fans will be excited to see Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa in action, who always finds a way to step up at soccer’s grandest stage.

However, goals have been hard to come by for Mexico, with only Alexis Vegas and Raúl Jiménez scoring more than two goals during qualifying.

Poland will be led by their captain Robert Lewandowski, who, at 34 years of age, still has a lot to give at the top level. Well-known as one of the all-time best strikers, the Pole is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Lewandowski will also be surrounded by an exciting midfield group, led by Piotr Zielinski. Poland will also expect the likes of Karol Swiderski and Adam Buksa to provide a constant attacking threat.

Mexico and Poland will both clash with Argentina and Saudi Arabia in later Group C matches.
