The FIFA World Cup 2022 championship match has begun.

On Sunday, December 18, at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar, the thrilling football tournament, which featured numerous records being broken, upsets, and surprises, will come to an end. France, the tournament’s champion, will play Argentina.

With goals from Lionel Messi and Julian Alvarez, Argentina defeated 2018 runners-up Croatia 3-0 to secure their spot in the championship game.

Theo Hernandez and Randal Kolo Muani both scored goals for Les Bleus in France’s ensuing 2-0 victory over first-time semifinalist Morocco.

Messi, one of the game’s all-time greats, will face Kylian Mbappe, one of the most promising young players, in the eagerly anticipated championship game.

If the idea of the two competing against each other wasn’t enough to whet the appetite, the minor fact that both players have five goals each and are tied for first place in the race for the Golden Boot adds another tantalising twist to the storyline.
