    World Cup

    in incredible final




    goals are not enough for France

  • Mad Messi!

    Argentina takes the lead in extra time

Update from December 18, 8:20 p.m .:

Argentina is world champion, Lionel Messi is at the goal of his dreams.

Before the superstar lifted the World Cup trophy into the night sky, the Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani put a typical country cape on him.

Messi experienced the greatest moment of his career wearing a 'mosquito screen' as was mocked online immediately after the scene.

ARD expert Bastian Schweinsteiger did not like the action at all.

“You take away a big moment from the player.

I don't think Messi himself was happy either.

In my opinion, the action was unsuccessful.”

Lionel Messi at the goal of his dreams.

But he probably didn't expect that he would hold the World Cup trophy in the sky with this outfit.

+++ Conclusion: football heart, what more do you want?!

In an incredibly dramatic World Cup final, in which Argentina were clearly superior until the 75th minute, France came back three times through Kylian Mbappé.

The Albiceleste then had the better nerves in the penalty shoot-out – and so Lionel Messi was crowned world champion.

108 minutes:

Messi with the first shot in the second half of extra time.

Lloris is down and makes a save.

The Albiceleste is on the trigger...

106 minutes:

It's a long way!

Phew, this is exciting...


105 minutes:

Again Martinez, who is suddenly through!

But Upamecano blocks the Inter-Star at the last moment.

That was it in the first round of overtime.

Gripping, moving, captivating!

Extra time in the World Cup final


90th + 8 minutes:

So, there is an extension!


90th + 7 minutes:


A sign of life from Argentina.

From the superstar, of course, who is looking for a finish in the penalty area.

But too central, Lloris stops!

Argentina is swimming extremely here!

Coman asserts himself on the left wing and is then felled.

Tricky scene in Argentina's penalty area.

Thuram goes down, referee Marciniak whistles.

It's a bit reminiscent of the quarter-finals against the Netherlands, where Messi and Co. conceded a 2-0 lead.

85 minutes:

An unbelievable football game here, because France and Argentina deliver an open exchange of blows here.

Mbappe vs. Messi: World Cup final is pure excitement.

Argentina vs France now live: tower over Messi and Co.!

What is Mbappe doing?

68 minutes:

France come into play a little better in the last few minutes, but so far it's not really necessary.

So far there is absolutely nothing to see from superstar Mbappé.

Things are very different in Argentina, where Messi and Di Maria, who has since been substituted, excel.

60 minutes:

Again Messi and di Maria!

The left winger has too much space in the penalty area, then puts it across fantastically, in the middle Alvarez lets Messi through.

But the superstar misses the 3-0 because Rabiot is still bothering him.

56 minutes:

Rabiot tries to send a signal and overshoots the target a little.

The Juve star falls to Fernandez on the touchline.

Shortly thereafter, Mbappé is carried away to an unnecessary action.

Does that bring anything?

49 minutes:

And it goes on almost as it did in the first round.

Argentina has a good grip and is extremely secure with the ball, while France simply isn't present.

Therefore, de Paul also has the first chance.

46th minute:

Let's continue with the second half in the final of the 2022 World Cup. Will France come back here again?

Argentina vs France now live: Di Maria scores to make it 2-0 - Messi scores 1-0 © IMAGO / SNA

+++ Half-time conclusion: Argentina deserves a 2-0 lead against France.

In the first 35 minutes, the Équipe Tricolore were completely beside themselves, while the Albiceleste, led by Messi, were there immediately.

Especially the move with Di Maria paid off for the South Americans.

The Juve star got the penalty before the 1-0 and then scored the 2-0 himself. France coach Deschamps reacted before the break and replaced Giroud and Dembele.

Will that still happen in the second half?



45th + 7 minutes:

Break in the World Cup final!

45 minutes:

There's seven minutes on top.

Sure, Lloris also had to be treated for a few minutes.

41 minutes:

Double change before the break in France!

Kolo Muani and Thuram replace Dembele and Giroud.

That's an announcement from Deschamps.


Argentina vs France now live: Unbelievable!

Argentina vs France now live: Unbelievable!

Di Maria completes dream counterattack

36 minutes: GOOOOOOOR!


Argentina counters France, outstanding!

Upamecano wants to keep the ball in play and thus exposes the defense.

Messi frees Mac Allister, who crosses again in the penalty area, di Maria is completely blank at the second post and scores to make it 2-0 for the Albiceleste!

29 minutes:

The lead is more than deserved here because France are unusually nervous in the first half hour.

Argentina had significantly more of the game, while the defending champions are neither offensive nor defensive.

Messi and Di Maria, who are the most conspicuous players here so far, are completely different.

Argentina vs France now live: Gooor!

Argentina vs France now live: Gooor!

Messi scores the lead

23 minutes: GOOOOOOOOR!

Messi doesn't let the chance slip, looks at Lloris and nonchalantly converts in the bottom right.

Argentina leads 1-0 in the World Cup final against France!

22 minutes: What is Dembele doing there?

The Barca star is simply outplayed by Di Maria and then fouls the Argentine in the penalty area.

Referee Marciniak points straight to the point!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Mbappé became world champion four years ago in Russia.

Can he repeat his triumph?
