Argentina vs France Lineups, Head to Head and Score Prediction 1-0

Argentina will face France in the 2022 World Cup final which will take place at the Lusail Stadium on Sunday (18/12/2022) at 22.00 WIB.

Argentina first qualified for the final after eliminating Croatia with a score of 3-0 in the 2022 World Cup semi-final which took place at the Lusail Stadium on Wednesday (14/12/2022). Argentina's goals were scored by Lionel Messi 1 goal each, and Julian Alvarez 2 goals.

Meanwhile, France qualified for the final after defeating Morocco with a score of 2-0. In the match that took place at Al Bayt Stadium, Thursday (12/15/2022) at 02.00 WIB, 2 French goals were scored by Theo Hernandez in the 5th minute and Randal Kolo Muani in the 79th minute.

This top party is an ideal party because both teams are both championed to win. Both teams are equally experienced and have won the world cup 2 times each.

Argentina has won the world cup in 1978 and 1986. Meanwhile, France has won the 1998 World Cup and the 2018 World Cup.

Both teams also have star players. On the Argentine side, Le Albiceleste relied on their superstar Lionel Messi to get to the final. Meanwhile, at Les Bleus rely on Kylian Mbappe. Both players are competing to be the top scorer of the 2022 World Cup and have scored 5 goals each.

However, in the Argentinian camp, bad news emerged. Lionel Messi reportedly did not take part in Argentina's training session ahead of the final against France. This sparked fears that Messi is battling injury.

Even so, Messi said after the match against Croatia in the semi-finals that he was in good condition. “I feel very good, I feel strong and ready to play every game,” he said as quoted by The Mirror on Friday (16/12/2022).

Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez also dismissed suggestions that Messi was injured. "We played 120 minutes against the Netherlands, it was a difficult game for him [Lionel Messi]. But you can see he wants to finish every game. Physically he [Lionel Messi] is very good and he is man of the match in every game," he said

In the French camp, Mbappe is ready to appear to be a differentiator on the field. Mbappe and his friends are trying to win the world cup in a row.

France national team coach Didier Deschamps also said that his team were ready to tackle Messi's attempt to win his first world cup title. "We will do everything possible so that [Messi wins the 2022 World Cup] doesn't happen," he said.
