Argentinian fans in Doha are convinced that Messi's time has come to shine during the World Cup final

The last game of the World Cup between Argentina and France is nearing. Fans from both countries have arrived in Doha, Qatar, for the match. Argentina has brought an estimated 40,000 fans, many of whom hope to see star player Lionel Messi win a World Cup in his potential final tournament. 

France, seeking to win a second straight title, has also brought around 10,000 fans to the Gulf state. The high anticipation for the match has caused a rush for tickets, with some sold for significantly above their face value on WhatsApp groups.

 Although the majority of fans in attendance will be Argentinean, French supporters have not reported any hostility from them. However, they expect the stadium atmosphere on game day to be largely one-sided. 

Despite the optimism of the Argentinean fans, France's coach, Didier Deschamps, is confident in his team's ability to handle the pressure and emerge victorious.

"I anticipate a lively and energetic atmosphere with the Argentine fans, who are known for their enthusiasm and support for their team. They are known for their singing and expressive nature, which is sure to be fully displayed during the World Cup final." 

"While it's great to have such passionate fans, it's important to remember that our opponents will be on the field and not in the stands.".
