Argentina vs France: Argentina is hoping to add another star to their jersey after failing to win the World Cup since 1986. France, who has two cups under their belt, will attempt to become the first team since Brazil in 1962 to win the trophy two years in a row.
The 2022 World Cup final has arrived, with reigning champions France facing Argentina in the championship game.
France defeated Morocco to become only the third team to retain the trophy, while Argentina defeated Croatia to keep alive their dream of a first title since 1986 — and a first for Lionel Messi on his likely final World Cup appearance.
The match takes place at the Lusail Stadium and begins at 3pm GMT, which is 10am ET and 7am PT.
Uruguay, Italy, Germany, Brazil, England, Argentina, France, and Spain are the only teams to have won the World Cup.
With five goals each, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé lead the Golden Boot race; however, Mbappé is technically first because he has more non-penalty goals. To take the lead, Messi would need to score in the final on Sunday.

Mbappé would become only the fifth player to score in multiple World Cup finals, and the second to score in back-to-back finals, if he scores.
If Messi scores, he will be the first man since the round of 16 was introduced in 1986 to score in the round of 16, quarterfinals, semifinals, and final of a World Cup.
Argentina vs France’s previous World Cup meetings:
2018, last 16: France 4-3 Argentina
1978, first group stage: Argentina 2-1 France
1930, group stage: Argentina 1-0 France
A win for Argentina would cap Messi’s career exactly as a Hollywood screenwriter would have imagined it – but, despite the fact that France is missing a number of key players, aren’t they too good for the Albiceleste? Our predictions have been dreadful this tournament, so just watch the Argentines win 5-0 now… but we expect Les Bleus to win the World Cup, and a glum Messi to win the Golden Ball, as he did in 2014.
