17 minutes

: What's going on with France?

Theo Hernandez slips up again, de Paul switches quickly.

After a one-two with Messi, Di Maria gets the ball 16 meters from goal - but off to the third row!

That was his weak foot.

Argentina 0-0 France (-:-)

Argentina: E Martinez - Molina, Romero, Otamendi, Tagliafico - de Paul, E Fernandez - di Maria, Mac Allister - Messi, Alvarez

France: Lloris - Koundé, Varane, Upamecano, T. Hernandez - Tchouameni - Griezmann, Rabiot - Dembele, Giroud, Mbappé

Gates: -

10 minutes:

Argentina again!

De Paul closes relatively unchallenged, Upamecano fends off for a corner.

This is also dangerous again, because the French can not clarify.

Then Lloris stays down after a collision and needs treatment.

A really hectic start here in the World Cup final!

5 minutes:

A nervous start from the French!

Hernandez plays a frantic pass into Messi's feet.

Shortly thereafter, Griezmann makes a strange bad pass.

Very unusual!

Mac Allister then finishes, but right into the arms of Lloris.

3 minutes:

First action for Argentina!

Messi plays de Paul in the penalty area, who lobs into the box, where Alvarez finishes, but no problem for Lloris.

The ManCity attacker was offside, so it wouldn't have counted anyway.

Update from December 18, 3:55 p.m .:

The stars march onto the field, the anthems sound.

It's about to start here at the Lusail Iconic Stadium!

Update from December 18, 3:39 p.m .: Can

Didier Deschamps win the title hat trick?

The coach of the Équipe Tricolore became world champion in 1998 as captain.

Four years ago at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Deschamps was also on the sidelines.

He would be the first coach since Vittorio Pozzo in 1934 and 1938 to win the title with Italy.

Update from December 18, 3:36 p.m .:

It starts in just over 25 minutes!

Then the 2022 World Cup final will kick off.

We're already hot!

Update from December 18, 3:27 p.m .: By

the way, the referee of the game is Szymon Marciniak.

For Poland, the World Cup final is the first big game.

His career was almost over.

Due to a protracted illness, the continuation of his career as a football referee was in the balance.

"It's been a difficult time for me over the past year and a half," said the referee, who suffered from an accelerated heart rate (tachycardia).

"It's a difficult illness," said Marciniak, who wasn't even allowed to referee games in the meantime: "That's why I missed the European Championships last year."

Argentina vs France now live: Surprising line-up!

Di Maria begins

Update from December 18, 2:58 p.m .:

The Argentina lineup is also there – and there’s a big surprise there!

Angel Di Maria is actually in the starting XI.

The Juve star has been mostly injured in this tournament so far and was therefore hardly available.

Update from December 18, 2:52 p.m .:

France’s lineup is available!

Bayern star Dayot Uapemcano returns to the starting XI after his cold, which is why he missed the World Cup semi-final against Morocco (2-0).

Kingsley Coman and Benjamin Pavard, the other two from Munich, initially watch.

In addition, Adrien Rabiot starts again instead of Fofana.

The Juve star also missed the Morocco match due to a cold.

Updated December 18th.

2:28 p.m .:

Before the World Cup final even starts, things are already going haywire.

Apparently, France jerseys with three World Cup stars are in circulation.

Equipment supplier Nike has probably anticipated a little too boldly.

So far, the chest of the Équipe Tricolore has "only" been decorated with two stars.

France were world champions in 1998 and 2018.

Munich/Lusail – It's done!

The final of the 2022 World Cup between Argentina and France is coming up.

Lionel Messi vs Kylian Mbappé: who will be world champion?

For the 35-year-old Messi it would be the first world title.

In the 2014 final, La Pulga lost 1-0 to the DFB team after extra time.

Mbappé became world champion four years ago in Russia.

Can he repeat his triumph?

Argentina vs France now live: all eyes on Lionel Messi

Meanwhile, all eyes on Argentina's side are on Messi.

The superstar, who has already scored five goals in this tournament and leads the World Cup scorers list together with PSG friend Mbappé, wants to finally crown his career with the World Cup title.

Messi had already announced ahead of the World Cup final that this would be his last World Cup game of his career.

He made his debut at the age of 18 at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

His biggest success so far in the national team was winning the Copa America 2021.
