It is the biggest content in world sport – the most viewed event of the sporting calendar around the world, with people from every continent on the globe watching to find out who will claim the biggest prize.

The World Cup Final has seen it all over the years, but on this occasion, Argentina and France will meet to decide who claims the ultimate glory in Qatar.

For Argentina and Leo Messi, it is the Albiceleste’s chance to win the trophy for the first time since 1986, when Diego Maradona led his nation to a famous victory. 

Messi has announced that this will be his final World Cup, and it is one that he has lit up with brilliant goals and genius play. It would be fitting to see him lift the trophy.

France are looking to become the first team to win consecutive World Cups in 60 years, since the Brazil team of 1962. It would be an incredible achievement in the modern age, where competition is at an all-time high.

Kylian Mbappe is the superstar leading France’s bid for victory, although they don’t rely on him quite as much as Argentina do with Messi.

There can only be one winner.

Argentina Preview

FIFA Ranking: 3

Predicted Finish: Runners-up

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Messi is playing superb football backed up by Alvarez

     Their fans will dominate the Lusail Iconic Stadium

Reasons to be fearful:

     Have lost three of their five finals until now

     This will be their toughest test by far

Having suffered the ultimate humiliation by losing to Saudi Arabia in their opening game, Argentina now have the opportunity to come full circle and win the tournament for the third time.

Only Spain have won the World Cup after losing their opening match, but a stat that will worry Argentina most is that they have lost three of their previous five finals. Only Germany have lost four.

On the positive side, they have scored at least two goals in each of their matches since the opening day, proving that their firepower has improved. Messi, of course, has been close to his very best.

Not just Messi, though. Otamendi and Romero have looked solid at the back, while Manchester City’s Alvarez looks classy upfront. Even Brighton’s Mac Allister and Rodrigo De Paul have grown in an Argentina shirt.

They will have it all to do against a super talented France team, but when they have the players that they do, anything’s possible.

Star Man – Leo Messi

It would be the stuff that dreams are made of. For arguably the greatest player ever to win the World Cup, the only trophy he hasn’t won, would be simply outstanding, not to mention deserved. He’s been wonderful here.

France Preview

FIFA Ranking: 4

Predicted Finish: Winners

Reasons to be cheerful

     Beat Argentina 4-3 in the 2018 World Cup

     Unbeaten against South American nations at World Cups since 1978

Reasons to be fearful

     Several players hit by a virus

     Were made to suffer by Morocco for large periods of the Semi Final

Should France win this one, they will go down alongside Italy and Brazil as one of only three nations to successfully defend their World Cup crown.

It would be a remarkable achievement, one that’s not been seen for 60 years. They’ve managed to reach the final with several key players – Pogba, Kante, Benzema – all injured.

In their places, the likes of Tchouameni, Rabiot and Giroud have all impressed and will lead the charge here again. 

A mystery illness has been doing the rounds in the French camp, which could certainly derail things if it became serious. Varane, Upamecano, Rabiot and Coman have been affected but aren’t thought to be doubts.

There is so much confidence, quality and experience around this France team.

Star Man – Kylian Mbappe

He was a breakout star at the last World Cup, now he is the genuine article. He has been electric throughout the tournament and would be a worthy champion once again.

     Possession should be evenly shared

     Messi vs. Mbappe – who will succeed?

     Could be a cagey chess battle at first before opening up

With so much at stake, World Cup finals often start slow, with both teams taking their time to get settled.

A fast start could swing it in either team’s favour, but that would appear to be unlikely.

Messi and Mbappe are the two stars of their nations and both would be worthy winners, but most of the world will want Argentina’s talisman to finally lift that golden World Cup and seal a phenomenal career.

France have the edge in many areas of the pitch and, on paper, are probably favourites. There is always a hope with Messi, however.
