2022 World Cup Final preview: Argentina vs France promises to be one for the ages

The most highly anticipated fixture of 2022 is now upon us – the World Cup final featuring defending champions France taking on Argentina. Two of the best teams in the world will be battling for the most coveted prize in international football. 

Argentina vs France – 2022 World Cup final preview 

Perhaps the final could be perceived as France vs the entire world – with the overwhelming support for Lionel Messi, who has broken so many more records at the 2022 edition of the World Cup. 

The Argentina skipper is arguably the greatest of all-time, and winning the only trophy that has eluded him for so long – the World Cup, will surely cement his position in the history books once and for all. 

To their advantage, France could miss Olivier Giroud due to a knock he sustained on the knee. Raphael Varane, Ibrahima Konate and Dayot Upamecano are all under the weather, but will be available for the final.

The absence of Giroud could be a huge blow for Didier Deschamps’ side. The country’s all-time top goalscorer has not only scored four goals at the tournament, but has also been great at build-up by bringing in the rest of the team. Marcus Thuram is expected to start ahead of the AC Milan striker, and he will have a huge responsibility on his shoulders. 

The Albiceleste, on the other hand, will have support from all corners of the world. They have the majority of their squad available, and their fluid attacking output could trouble France’s defence. But the same can be said the other way round, with Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann expected to start. 

For Messi, this could be the end of the ‘GOAT debate’ if he can win the World Cup trophy. Or, it could be a second straight title for France, establishing themselves as the best in the world yet again.
