France, the defending champions, defeated Morocco on Wednesday night to set up a World Cup final matchup with Argentina.
No team has successfully defended its title since Brazil in 1962, so this is a rare opportunity. Didier Deschamps, manager of Les Bleus, is seeking his third trophy overall and second while in charge of the national squad. Considering how badly you were hurt before the event, that’s quite a feat.
All of Argentina’s concerns regarding Lionel Messi’s dedication to the national team should rest easy now. It’s impossible to avoid drawing parallels between the 35-year-olds old’s in Qatar and Diego Maradona’s performance in 1986 when he single-handedly led his team to victory.
It’s beginning to look like the ending has been decided. Perhaps the greatest player of all time is in the midst of his final World Cup run and is closer than ever to winning the tournament’s top prize than he was in 2014’s championship game.
Argentina vs France Team News
Adrien Rabiot and Dayot Upamecano, who both missed the victory over Morocco due to sickness, are both expected to return in time for the championship game.
After missing the semi-final due to suspension, Marcos Acuna and Gonzalo Montiel are now eligible for selection.
After suffering a recent injury, Angel di Maria will no doubt be doing everything in his might to make the starting lineup.
Argentina vs France Prediction
Even though Messi seems destined for greatness, the French team will be tough to beat. Due to their apparent lack of fear and obvious offensive prowess, they may be able to weather the Argentine storm and win their third World Cup overall.
Our money is on France to win by a score of 2-1.
