Qatar 2022 World Cup, Argentina-France 0-0 final – live

France recovers Upamecano and Rabiot. Titular Di Maria in Argentina

Argentina and France on the pitch in Doha for the Qatar 2022 World Cup final.

THE MATCH – Argentina tries to take control of the match right from the start. The Albiceleste, with Messi at the center of the scene and Di Maria particularly inspired, settles in France’s half: in the 5th minute Mac Allister concludes from outside, Lloris blocks.

It is played only in the trocar of the world champions, which does not leave the bunker in the first 10 minutes. To see Mbappé at work you have to wait for the 14′, the combination with Rabiot is defused by the South American rearguard.

THE TRAINING – France recovers Upamecano and Rabiot, absent due to flu in the semifinal against Morocco. In defense, Varane is also regularly on the field, in turn affected in recent days. Coach Deschamps does not change forward with the trident Dembelé-Giroud-Mbappé and Griezmann in support. Scaloni’s Argentina sends the recovered Di Maria onto the field from 1′. Back four with Molina, Romero, Otamendi and Acuna. Julian Alvares still plays in front next to Messi.

Argentina: Martinez; Molina, Romero, Otamendi, Acuna; DiMaria, DePaul, Fernandez, MacAllister; Messi, Alvarez. Coach Scaloni.

France: Lloris; Koundé, Varane, Upamecano, T. Hernandez; Griezmann, Tchouameni, Rabiot; O. Dembélé, Giroud, Mbappé. Coach Deschamps.
