Argentina vs France Match Preview and Team News
Messi has inspired Argentina throughout what will be his last World Cup, and he was again at his mercurial best in a 3-0 semi-final drubbing of Croatia. The 35-year-old seven-time Ballon d’Or winner clinically fired in a 34th-minute penalty, and Julian Alvarez soon added a second with a fine solo effort. Croatia showed few signs of getting back into the game and was killed off for good when Messi produced a moment of magic to set up Alvarez to poke home a 69th-minute strike. Last year’s Copa America champions eased past Mexico and Poland and were more impressive than the results suggest in beating Australia 2-1 and then seeing off the Netherlands on penalties after a 2-2 draw. Angel Di Maria finally shows the qualities he possesses, he has excellent technique, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Lautaro Martinez is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
France has been less convincing than they were in Russia four years ago but remains in contention to become the first back-to-back World Cup winners since Brazil in 1962. Group-stage victories over Australia and Denmark meant that losing 1-0 to Tunisia with a much-changed line-up was academic. Poland provided little resistance when going down 3-1, but Les Bleus enjoyed the rub of the green in a 2-1 triumph over England. Morocco also made the holders work hard in the semi-finals, and fortunate deflections fell to Theo Hernandez and Randal Kolo Muani for both goals in a 2-0 success. Didier Deschamps revealed some of his players had been hit by flu-like symptoms but will have been happy with a first clean sheet of the tournament – and France does have a happy knack of digging deep and getting the job done even when not playing well. Eduardo Camavinga shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Antoine Griezmann is a guy who causes a lot of problems for the opponent on the left side. He is fast and unstoppable in a one-on-one game.
