Who Is The Referee for The 2022 World Cup Final Between Argentina and France?

After two convincing victories against Croatia and Morocco in the semi-finals, the 2022 World Cup final will be played in Qatar’s majestic 85,000-capacity Lusail Stadium.

The French are the current winners after their victory over Croatia in Moscow four years ago, and Diego Maradona led Argentina to victory in 1986. Both teams will be looking to add to their World Cup trophies.

The Lusail matchup has been hyped as a Messi vs. Mbappé showdown because the PSG striker, who was born in Rosario, confirmed to the media earlier this week that it will be his final World Cup encounter in an Argentina jersey.

Arg-Fra: Match Official

Szymon Marciniak, a Polish official who turned professional in 2006 and has refereed over 200 games in the Ekstraklasa, Poland’s highest level, will be in charge of Sunday’s championship match.

The 41-year-old official began his Europa League career in 2011, the same year he turned 30 and was added to FIFA’s list of referees. It wasn’t until Euro 2016 that he was called upon to participate in a major international event, following his debut Champions League encounter in 2012.

Marciniak is a veteran of the World Cup, having presided over a pair of Group Stage contests in 2018. France’s 26 November Group D victory over Denmark and Argentina’s 16th-round victory over Australia both occurred under his refereeing.
