Argentina-France: Angel Di Maria doubles the lead after a lightning counter-attack


Following a ball returned by Dayot Upamecano and five assists from Argentina, the former PSG player scored the break goal for Albic


The France team has been behind since the start of the final and the surprise holder Angel Di Maria sanctioned French passivity.

Pressed on the left side, Dayot Upamecano gets rid of the leather in the Argentinian camp.

Argentina starts again, Lionel Messi fixes the defense in the axis, Julian Alvarez launches Alexis Mac Allister, who takes advantage of the absence of Upamecano in the axis and serves Di Maria at the far post.

Launched, "El Fideo" then deceives Hugo Lloris with a cross shot in one touch.

Les Bleus trailed by two goals in the 36th minute.

The stadium, with its Argentinian accent, capsizes again.

Di Maria, he celebrates his goal in tears at the corner post, before signing his achievement with his traditional heart with his fingers.

Dominated on the second balls, unable to progress in the axis of the field and wandered by Argentine knockdowns, the Habs paid for their complicated start to the match.

Lionel Messi opened the scoring in the 23rd minute on a penalty already obtained by Di Maria.

Never had the players of Didier Deschamps been led by two goals since the start of the tournament.

Only Australia had managed to open the score against France but they only kept their advantage for 18 minutes.

Four years earlier, the Blues had also found themselves behind in their round of 16 against the Albiceleste.

Lionel Messi and his teammates had taken the lead after returning from the locker room before Benjamin Pavard woke up France and reversed the course of the game.
