Fifa World Cup final, ARG vs FRA Live Score: France eye comeback in 2nd HF- QHN

Courtesy of two goals coming via the involvement of Angel Di Maria, Argentina have taken a 2-0 lead and are headed into the players’ tunnel for halftime with a lot of positives. The first goal came after Di Maria was felled in the 18-yard box by Dembele and the Albiceleste got a penalty which was converted by Messi. 

Then again in the 85th minute, Messi played a brilliant ball to Alvarez, who passed it to Di Maria who had acres of space ahead of him and put the ball in the net behind Lloris to make it 2-0. France on the other hand hasn’t even had a shot on goal in the entire first half. 

In 2014, Messi was denied by Germany and Mario Goetze. He was denied by penalty shoot-outs and Chile in Copa America too, not once but twice during that same phase. However, times have changed and the little magician has already won the Copa America as skipper with Argentina and also bounced back brilliantly in this Fifa World Cup after an early defeat by Saudi Arabia. 

The momentum is with Argentina, especially the way in which they have managed to reach the finale. The likes of Acuna, Molina, Paredes, Enzo Fernandez and especially Alvarez, would be looking to shell all their pressure and support the dream of one man called Messi. 

On the other hand, France have the chance to become only the third team after Italy and Brazil to win back-to-back World Cups. While the Azurri did it in 1934 and 1938, the Brazilian team achieved a similar team in 1958 and 62.

If France, led by the likes of Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe in the front and Antoine Griezmann, Rabiot and Dembele in the middle achieves this feat, they would become the first team to do so in the 21st century.
