Giroud’s take on Messi and Argentina before the FIFA World Cup 2022 final

Giroud speaks about Messi and calls him an incredible player. Giroud says the team will work with Deschamps to outline a plan and stop Argentina.

France advances to the FIFA World Cup 2022 final after defeating Morocco 2-0 in the semi-finals. Argentina was the first to arrive for the party after defeating Croatia  2-0. Nonetheless, the date set for December 18, 2022, is going to be a ride worth remembering.

Giroud interacted with the media ahead of the final round. He called Messi an incredible player, adding that the side will outline a plan with Deschamps to try everything to stop him.

Giroud is aware that Argentina is much more than Messi, especially with a striker like Alvarez, who possesses the skills to convert assistance into a goal. The recent fixture with Croatia is a perfect example. The Semi-Final event was held on December 14, 2022, at 12:30 a.m. IST at Lusail Stadium saw Messi tackle a strong defense before handing the ball over to his 22-year-old teammate.

Alvarez was quick to take the shot and find the net, surpassing Livakovic, who stood there like a strong wall, unwilling to give up for his nation. It was indeed the manner in which Alvarez shot the ball that gave Argentina two goals in the 34th and 69th minutes.

The penalty kick goal scored by Messi in the 34th minute tied him with Mbappe in the race for the Golden Boot. With 5 goals apiece, both players share the lead.

Fernandez, Paredes, and De Paul, to name a few, are among the other players providing Messi with a protected environment. Scaloni feels fortunate that his entire team is in good health. In other words, Deschamps will have to devise a strategy to halt the entire team, not simply their leading scorer.

The French football manager has numerous options; the majority of them established their value against Morocco in the Semifinal on December 15, 2022, at 12:30 am IST. The fact that France scored two goals against a formidable Moroccan defensive stretch without Mbappe at the end of the attack proves this statement. Hernandez scored the opening goal, while Kolo Muani scored the second.

In 2018, Argentina and France last competed against one another in the FIFA World Cup. Argentina was unable to advance because it fell short by one goal. The score was 4-3 in the end. According to Giroud, Kante kept Messi quiet for the majority of the match.

France is aware that Argentina will employ a collective strategy in the last round. Griezmann has stated that Argentina is a difficult and seemingly in-form team. Griezmann added that it is not just Messi, but the team as a whole that has a big fan base.

Argentina against France The FIFA World Cup 2022 Final will be live-streamed from Lusail Stadium on December 18, 2022, at 8:30 p.m. IST. Stay to witness the tournament’s historic conclusion.
