FIFA World Cup

One Advantage France Has Over Argentina That Will Win Them The World Cup

Well, the World Cup comes to its conclusion after a month packed with football. Messi is looking to bow out on a high after almost 20 years of a glittering career where he has won everything apart from the trophy at stake tomorrow.

After starting their opening game with a defeat, Argentina will be looking to join the ranks of Spain as the only 2 countries in World Cup history to lose their first World cup game but then go ahead and lift the trophy. Tomorrow is when we are going to witness football great, Lionel Messi pass the torch to a young Kylan Mbappe who has all the attributes to go on and have an illustrious career just like the Argentine. But will Messi and company manage to beat world champions France?

Well, sadly I believe Messi will not bow out on high as his Argentina will just come short of France’s power. France have one weapon that they have been using and they will employ it to deny Messi and Argentina this much needed trophy at the Lusail stadium.

So, what is that weapon that Didier Deschamps and his team have been using on opponents? Well, the answer is simple: Moments. France in the knock out stages have been largely a team of moments. See, against England in the quarter finals, the English were arguably the better team. But France had just moments were they took the lead twice to eliminate them. Against Morocco, the Atlas Lions had the most possession but France’s early lead against them disorganized their well thought about game plan. In the end France’s substitute Muani scored with his first kick of the game and that meant Morocco never recovered despite playing admirably well against the World champions. France’s loss to Tunisia also illustrated how they are a team of moments. After securing qualification to the round of 16, France had nothing much to lose against Tunisia. Tunisia took the lead and even dominated the French. Then in the last minute of added time, Griezman scored an equalizer which was ruled for offside but in actual sense it wasn’t. Moments, moments is what Argentina should worry about against France.

Who do you think will win the World Cup? Let us know in the comments section below.
