After 63 matches across 28 days, the two best teams – and two best players – from the 2022 FIFA World Cup are left standing.
On one side are the defending tournament champions. Kylian Mbappé and France have been unstoppable in Qatar as they attempt to win their second straight World Cup. Les Bleus took care of business to win Group D and eliminated Poland, England and Morocco en route to their second straight World Cup final.
If they want to lift the trophy again, they will have beat perhaps the best player in the history of the sport.
Lionel Messi is set for his last ever World Cup match after guiding Argentina to its second final in eight years. The team lost the 2014 final to Germany in extra time and was eliminated by France in the 2018 round of 16, setting the stage perfectly for Messi’s World Cup sendoff.
Argentina needed to overcome an opening loss to Saudi Arabia in group play. La Albiceleste bounced back with wins over Mexico and Poland before advancing past Australia, the Netherlands and Croatia in the knockout rounds.
It’s Mbappé versus Messi with everything on the line. What more is left to be said?
