FIFA WORLD CUP FINAL 2022
In the World Cup Final 2022, Argentina will face France with both teams hoping to win the cup for the third time.
Lionel Messi led the South Americans to a 3-0 victory over Croatia as they advanced easily to the final.
Morocco proved to be a strong opponent and had spells of the game where they had the upper hand, but France fought valiantly to defeat them 2-0.
A total of 32 teams entered the 2022 Qatar World Cup with high expectations, but only one champion can be named following the completion of all 64 games.
The tournament thus far has been filled of surprises, dark horses, and upsets.
England breezed through the group stages and overcame Senegal 3-0 in the round of 16, but lost 2-1 in a semifinal match versus France.
The date of the 2022 World Cup Final.
On December 18, 2022, Sunday, Qatar National Day, the final game will take place.
When does game time start?
The final will begin on December 18 at 8:30 PM.
What stadium will host the championship game?
The Lusail Stadium will host the championship game that will determine the World Cup champions. Given Qatar’s temperatures, the roof of the cutting-edge, 80,000-seat stadium was “specifically chosen to provide shade” and features a futuristic style.
The location “shall be turned into a community area with schools, stores, cafés, athletic facilities, and health clinics,” according to the organisers, after the competition.
At an anticipated cost of $767 million, construction started in 2017 and was completed in 2021.
How is Argentina doing right now?
Argentina won their 3-0 semi-final match thanks in large part to Lionel Messi and Julian Alvarez. As a result of Livakovic’s collision with Alvarez, Croatia’s goalkeeper, Messi converted the game’s first penalty kick.
Soon after, after some shoddy Croatian defence, Alvarez extended the score from close range. Messi performed to the best of his abilities in the second half, giving Josko Gvardiol the runaround before setting up Alvarez to score Argentina’s third goal.
Argentina defeated the Netherlands in the quarterfinals thanks to Emiliano Martinez’s outstanding penalty save performance following a dramatic 2-2 tie in which Messi scored one goal and assisted on another.
Argentina defeated Australia 2-1 in the Round of 16 of the competition earlier. After a group round that began with a shocking loss to Saudi Arabia and ended with 2-0 victory over Mexico and Poland, that game represented a return to form.
How has France performed thus far?
Les Bleus have maintained a solid appearance in their attempt to defend their title despite sustaining multiple injuries. With five goals thus far in the competition, Kylian Mbappe has terrorised defences and is currently tied with Lionel Messi for first place in the battle for the Golden Boot.
France took the lead against Morocco right away thanks to a goal from Theo Hernandez. After that, Morocco had brief periods of dominance but had trouble producing any decisive chances. Randal Kolo Muani’s very late goal sealed the victory, though.
They fought hard to defeat England 2-1 in the quarterfinal, and they defeated Poland 3-1 in the last-16.
The one mistake made by France was a 1-0 loss to Tunisia in their final group game, but Didier Deschamps only used a B team because Les Bleus had already advanced.
What is the World Cup record for Argentina?
Argentina has two World Cup victories under its belt, in 1978 and 1986. The latter, which La Albiceleste won in Mexico, is one of the most famous victories in the tournament’s history. Diego Maradona, who was at the peak of his abilities, served as captain.
He created five goals and scored five throughout his productive seven-year tenure with Napoli, including the memorable “Hand of God” goal and the crazy 60-yard run afterwards named “Goal of the Century” in a 2-1 quarterfinal victory over England.
They also came in second place in 1990 and 2014, losing to Germany in the championship game in each case.
What is the World Cup record for France?
The current champions are France, who won in Russia. In 1998, they also triumphed on their home field. In 2006, they finished second in Germany, losing to Italy on penalties as a result of Zinedine Zidane’s infamous headbutt on Marco Materazzi.
Italy and Brazil are the only two nations to have won the World Cup twice.
What is the performance history of France and Argentina?
Twelve games between Argentina and France have resulted in six Argentina victories, three France victories, and three draws.
Their most recent meeting took place in the 2018 World Cup, where they engaged in an exciting quarterfinal match that France won 4-3. That day, Kylian Mbappe seized a brace.
They had only ever faced off against one another twice at a World Cup. Argentia triumphed 1-0 in the tournament’s debut match and also won 2-1 in the group stage in 1978.
What is the most recent information regarding the outcome?
The captain of Argentina, Lionel Messi, has declared that the World Cup final will be his final match. He has competed in five World Cups as a player.
“I am delighted to complete my World Cup trip in a final and to play the last game in a final,” the player said.
Really, that is very satisfying, he remarked. “Seeing how much the World Cup has been cherished in Argentina has made everything I have experienced during this tournament emotional.
From this year to the next, there are many years. I doubt I’ll be able to pull that off. It is fantastic to end in this manner.
What country will host the next World Cup?
The United States, Canada, and Mexico will host the World Cup in 2026 in a tournament first after the group’s candidacy defeated Morocco’s forceful one. There will be 16 cities where the competition matches will be played, including 11 in the United States, 2 in Canada, and 3 in Mexico.
The trophy’s history
For the 1974 World Cup, which was held in West Germany, the Fifa World Cup Trophy took the place of the original Jules Rimet Trophy, which was named in honour of the Fifa president who served the longest.
Fifa received 53 designs for the new trophy, and they ultimately chose the one made by Italian sculptor Silvio Gazzaniga. With two stylised players holding up the world, the trophy symbolises the happiness of victory.
The award is 36.8 cm high, contains 18 carat solid gold, and weighs 6.175 kg. Two semiprecious green malachite rings that are 13 cm in diameter and have undergone multiple restorations as well as the installation of a fresh layer of gold plating make up the base. FIFA made the decision to discontinue financing the money after the most recent renovation in 2005.
Before, World Cup winners could retain the trophy in their federation’s trophy cabinet before giving it back to Fifa for the following World Cup. Since 2006, the original cup has only been presented to the team as part of the formal award ceremony before being taken away by Fifa staff. The original is then duplicated and presented to the winning nation.
