France’s possible starting lineup for the World Cup final vs Argentinas

France will go into battle on Sunday 18 December against Argentina at the Lusail Stadium, the prize: a third World Cup winner star on their shirt and the golden trophy that is so iconic across the planet. Kylian Mbappé will no doubt have weight of the nation on his young shoulders; Messi does not look tired yet from carrying his for a decade and more, and the showpiece event has even been marked as a ‘present king vs future king’ debate-settling clash.

Les Blues arrive at the 64th game of the tournament (have you watched them all?) on the back of a ruthless 2-0 victory over Morocco, sending the Atlas Lions, and our hearts, on a plane to Africa. For that game, they were without Adrien Rabiot (cold) and Dayot Upamecano (sore throat). It is not know, at least by myself, how widely available cough syrup is in Qatar.

France team news

The state of Rabiot and Upamecano is not known, so it remains a mystery as to whether or not they will be able to play. It has also been reported that Kingsley Coman is now also suffering the same symptoms as the pair, and there are suggestions that it could be Camel Flu that is keeping them out.

Reports also suggest that Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema could make an even more spectacular return than that of the Dragon in Shrek 2, after he recovered from an injury that saw him leave the French training camp just before the tournament began. We shall see, although Deschamps replied “next question” with a slightly exhausted look on his face, so it is probably quite unlikely.


With only two matches remaining at #Qatar2022, here’s how our current Top 10 looks like. 👇

It will take a special display by Lionel Messi in the #FIFAWorldCup final to overtake Bruno Fernandes in the top spot — however, if anyone can do it, he can!
