After a one-month footballing battle, merriment, despondency, and an emotional roller coaster, the world is finally bidding farewell to FIFA World CUP 2022, with only two games remaining. Argentina and France, on the other hand, have a lot at stake.
“Look who we are! We are the dreamers!” Junk kook may have sung it but there were another 32 dreamers who competed, gave their all, and made their country proud.
When it comes to this year’s World Cup, some will call it “entertaining,” while others will call it “undeserving,” and still others will call it “boring.” But it was thrilling, unpredictable, and arguably the best World Cup ever.
Before the tournament began, there was a lot of talk about Qatar hosting the World Cup. What a disappointment it turned out to be!
Mightiest were defeated in this World Cup, and favorites were eliminated earlier than expected. Argentina and France, two heavyweights still standing strong. They have a final deal to be done.
Argentina is flying
Argentina however didn’t start the campaign well. They stumbled against Saudi Arabia. There has been no turning back since. They picked up the pace and demonstrated who they are.
Lionel Messi is once again delivering, topping the chart of most goals alongside his PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe. He is 35 years old, well! Technically 35 years of young. Some called him “GOAT”. He, for sure has a final say on October 18 when he hung up his boots for Argentina.
Scaloni’s Argentina has a new ‘Aguero’ in Julian Alvarez, “The Spider.” When he strikes, he strikes empathically. This high-flying Argentina knows no bounds.
France is a team to beat
Talking about France is always frightening because it becomes fearsome when they step onto the field. Deschamp and his troops are like that. France has yet to be defeated, and all they want is to keep their unblemished record.
For the second time in a row, France will compete in the FIFA World Cup final. When they faced Croatia in 2018, they were simply unstoppable. In a few days, we’ll find out what kind of gifts await them.
France have pace and experience. They have a weapon in Mbappe, who never accepts defeat. They have a lot of depth, which could come in handy. A Mario Götze moment against Argentina? Again? Déjà vu!
The scene must be indefinable when elegance meets terror. October 18 at Al Bayet stadium, show will be unveiled. Until then, keep an eye on Sportszion for any kind of latest updates.
