A month-long event comes to a conclusion on Sunday, December 18, 2022. The two teams—France and Argentina—playing the final lap of the FIFA World Cup 2022 deserve to be in that position. Argentina suffered an early defeat against Saudi Arabia before going on to win the rest of the World Cup. France has come a long way with its unlimited strike options.
Fans will get the final that they have been praying for a long time. Messi announced that this is his final run for the FIFA World Cup tournament. Argentina is thus at its emotional peak as it bids a triumphant farewell to its star attacker.
France won the title in the previous edition. Deschamps wants to be a part of history by becoming the first team to defend the title in 60 years.
Their journey so far has been overwhelming, courtesy of the fans and the manner in which wins have fallen into their laps. The table drawn below highlights some of the important FIFA World Cup 2022 statistics of the finalists.
|Goals Scored||12|| |
Lionel Messi (5)
Kylian Mbappe (5)
Messi and Mbappe are tied for first place in the Golden Boot competition, creating a new dynamic in the last round of the FIFA World Cup. Both forwards will attempt to score at least once during the competition. Messi is also the player with the most assists, with three. Griezmann has performed this task three times for his French teammates.
Both teams advanced to the Semifinals without allowing an opponent to score a single goal. Two times throughout the match, Hernandez and Muani were able to breach the formidable Moroccan defensive wall. Two times against Croatia, Messi carried the ball with Alvarez, so he must be credited with an equal amount of value.
The majority of possession was held by Croatia, but this had no effect on Argentina, who proceeded to the Semifinals by defeating the Netherlands 4-3 on penalties.
France struggled to maintain possession, despite the fact that they rarely needed the ball at their feet. A small amount was sufficient for Deschamps’s troops to perform their duties. France’s Quarter-Final match versus England, where Kane was spearheading a determined drive, was a vital occasion.
On December 18, 2022, Argentina and France will meet in the final round of the FIFA World Cup 2022. Both the teams are favorite among Football betting punters, with just time remaining to determine who will finally hoist the trophy.
This follows the contest between Croatia and Morocco for the tournament’s third-place slot. Lusail Stadium will host the final lap, while Khalifa International Stadium will see a team return home with their pride intact despite not advancing to the championship round.
