Argentina-France Qatar 2022 | Direct: Lusail distributes the third star


Finally, the wait is over. 29 days after the Soccer World Cup began in Qatar, today Sunday we will know who will be crowned champion with an exciting and attractive final between the teams from Argentina and France, starting at 4:00 p.m. (La1/Gol Mundial/ Movistar+). Who will champion at Lusail Stadium?

The ‘Albiceleste’ and the ‘Bleus’, current champions, stood at the event as two of the great candidates to embroider one more star on their shirt, which would be the third in their history for both, and both have fulfilled these forecasts after a tournament with more scares for the Argentines.

Lionel Scaloni’s team began losing in its debut and after accumulating 36 games undefeated against modest Saudi Arabia, but since then it has been quite solid, guided by Leo Messi and the goals of Julián Álvarez, although in the quarterfinals it suffered to leave the penalties to the Netherlands. Australia and Croatia have been its other victims.

For their part, Didier Deschamps’ men have won everything except the defeat in a match with nothing at stake at the end of the group stage against Tunisia (1-0) and on the way they left Poland, another aspirant like England and to the revelation Morocco. In his case, the baton has been put by the mattress player Antoine Griezmann, who has offered a great level in the facet of creation, and the goals, the stellar Kylian Mbappé, who will undoubtedly experience a personal duel with his PSG teammate Leo Messi .

Welcome to the story of Argentina-France.

Eight repeat ownership compared to Russia 2018

France took the last World Cup duel against Argentina four years ago, then in the round of 16 and in a spectacular 4-3 duel. From that match, there are eight players who are starting again: Lloris, Varane, Mbappé, Griezmann and Giroud, on the French side, and Messi, Di María and Otamendi, on the Argentine side.

“We know about Mbappé’s speed”

Roberto Ayala, Scaloni’s assistant, before the game: “These footballers have once again put Argentine football as high as possible. We have to counteract the opponent’s weapons, which have very good footballers. We are a team that likes to have the ball and you have to finish the plays. We know about Mbappe’s speed and who can activate him.”

waiting for the eleven

In the absence of just over an hour and a half we are waiting for the eleven of each team. Not many surprises are expected on the Argentine side, except for the probable return of Sevilla’s Acuña, sanctioned for the semifinals, to the left back.

In France, the news would be the return of Upamecano in defense and Rabiot in midfield, who missed the duel against Morocco due to physical problems.
