Who will win the World-Cup Final ?
The FIFA World Cup in Qatar has witnessed an increase in playing time, but its result on Sunday between France and Argentina will probably depend on specific moments— those small details at the Lusail Stadium— like a defense-tearing run by Kylian Mbappe or a defense-splitting pass from Lionel Messi.
Because Argentina and France, the challengers, and the defending champions, are so similar, everything will depend on that one brilliant moment.Both attempt to maintain their shapes while sitting behind the ball; neither attempts to control possession.
You simply need to look at the semifinal matches to see it, since both teams barely managed 39% of the ball against Morocco and Croatia, respectively.
Nevertheless, they succeeded because they were brutal and effective when they were needed.
Mbappe’s fast feet helped France defeat Morocco in the end, while Messi’s brilliance stunned Croatia for Argentina.
The football controversy involving Messi and Mbappe took centre stage during the three-day break between the semifinals and final, which felt like an eternity at the most crowded 32-team World Cup in history where games have come thick and fast.
During the World Cup, a FIFA-sponsored side event held in the days between the semi-final and final, renowned Italian coach Fabio Capello told reporters that Messi and Mbappe were the difference in the semi-finals.
On two occasions, Mbappe made a decisive approach to the goal, and his shots produced two deflections from which the goals were scored. Messi played well against Croatia and is once again Messi. They will be the ones who matter, and neither of them will be able to triumph, he said.
Pressure is mounting up over who will win the World-Cup Final.
