The world is gearing up to watch a thrilling final between the two of the world’s best football teams.
Argentina and France will meet on Sunday to lift the most prestigious football trophy in the world. Argentina defeated Croatia in the first semi-final, while France ended Morocco’s dream world cup run earlier this week.
Now that the world’s biggest sporting event is ending, all eyes will be on Argentine’s Lionel Messi and his Paris Saint Germain teammate and France’s superstar Kylian Mbappe. With five goals each, both players are the top scorers at the current FIFA World Cup. The two teams will compete to lift the world cup trophy for the third time.
France is the current world champion and Aims to become the first country to win back-to-back World Cups since the early 60s. Last time it was the football legend Pele’s Brazil that lifted two trophies in a row; since then, no team has been able to do that.
Argentina’s world cup bid got off to a disastrous start after losing its opening match to Saudi Arabia. Since then, the team has regrouped and played some brilliant football. The last time Argentina won the world cup was in 1986 under the captaincy of legendary Diago Maradona.
Messi, the world football icon, is playing in his last world cup game. The 35-year-old genius has collected all the trophies the world of football has to offer except the ultimate glory award, the world cup trophy. It is his fifth world cup, and Argentina last came close to lifting the trophy in 2014 when they lost to Germany 1-0. Will Messi be able to recapture the Maradona magic, or will Mbappe’s France win the title this time. Either way, the world will witness a spectacular Final.
