Argentina has advanced to the FIFA World Cup 2022 finals by defeating Croatia. After the game ended, Lionel Messi encouraged the team to celebrate their victory.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner set the tone with an elegant penalty kick. Julian Alvarez generated the opportunity and ultimately won the game. The player finished the game with two goals at the Lusail stadium, where the championship match will be played.
Messi talked about the win in an interview, stating that Argentina is once again in the finals. So, enjoy it! The team has been through tough situations, but everyone expected this match to be spectacular.
The player proved this to be true by becoming the leading scorer in the tournament. At the same time, Messi overtook Gabriel Batistuta as the top World Cup scorer for Argentina with 11 goals.
Messi expressed enormous satisfaction at playing in front of the supporters, both in the stadium and in Argentina. The player stated that it must be madness over there.
The team entered the competition as fan favorites; however, the first game proved to be extremely rough. An opening loss against Saudi Arabia was not something any Argentinian fan expected.
The Saint-German player stated that everyone knew what they were capable of and had confidence in their abilities. Even though Argentina was the favorite, no one has given the team any victories; the players have earned each victory.
Alvarez, who began the World Cup on the bench, became the epitome of the statement. Nevertheless, the player has scored four goals in his last four appearances.
Even the team’s midfielder Rodrigo De Paul mentioned how Argentina’s victory over Brazil at the Copa America gave the team confidence. With a 36-match winning streak heading into the competition, they are now expressing the same sentiment in Qatar.
As the South American champs, the club has already demonstrated what it is capable of. Messi said that it is now time to complete the final phase.
Various football sports betting sites have made betting on football easy by making firm predictions on the FIFA World Cup 2022 finals between Argentina and whoever wins from France and Morocco.
Most football enthusiasts and experts expect France’s attack to break through Croatia’s defense. However, seeing how Morocco has only conceded one goal until now presents a bold statement.
The team has ended four games with clean sheets and has scored four goals as well. Conversely, France has scored 11 goals till now, making it a contrasting competition.
