Hugo Lloris confident 

The goalkeeper of the France team Hugo Lloris reacted to the microphone of TF1 before the match: "There is everything for a great final, against a great opponent. It is an important opportunity in our careers, for our prize list. It's the most difficult match of the tournament, we have to put all the chances on our side to succeed and win."

Kylian Mbappé in his bubble 

The star of the French team Kylian Mbappé arrived isolated, in his bubble at the Lusail stadium.

Seen in the corridors with his headphones, the 2018 world champion seems very focused and above all ready to thwart the defense of Argentina.

The challenge of the final on the Argentinian side

Argentines have been searching for a third star since 1986, and an entire country is dreaming of the ultimate coronation for idol Lionel Messi.

Indeed, the Albiceleste star plays the last World Cup of his career.

Les Bleus with Giroud and Rabiot

Uncertain weather due to a little discomfort felt in the knee, Olivier Giroud is well aligned by Didier Deschamps.

Adrien Rabiot was also uncertain.

Absent in the semi-final against Morocco, the midfielder finds his place in the starting lineup for the final against Argentina.

In front of Hugo Lloris, the defensive line will therefore be made up of Jules Koundé, Raphaël Varane, Dayot Upamecano and Theo Hernandez.

Aurélien Tchouaméni, Adrien Rabiot and Antoine Griezmann will form the middle.

Olivier Giroud will be supported at the peak by Ousmane Dembélé and Kylian Mbappé.

Here is the composition of the French team at kick-off: Lloris - Koundé, Varane, Upamecano, T. Hernandez - Griezmann, Tchouaméni, Rabiot - Dembélé, Giroud, Mbappé.

Here is the starting 1️⃣1️⃣ for our against Argentina ⚔️
