The main event of a dazzling World Cup 2022 schedule kicks off on Sunday afternoon at the Lusail Iconic Stadium, as Argentina and reigning champions France (ARG vs FRA) compete for international supremacy.
Argentina – After facing an iconic defeat against Saudi Arabia in their 1st match, Argentina never looked back. Argentina took down every team that came next against them and booked their place in the finals. Lionel Messi with his immense contribution to Argentina will lead from the front again against France.
France – A slew of key player injuries, off-field squabbles, and an almost unthinkable relegation from the Nations League, was about to jeopardy France’s World Cup journey. But a few expected France to go all the way in Qatar, but those who got Les Bleus in the sweepstakes may be feeling a little smugger right now, as the defending champions show why the trophy still gleams in their cabinet.
