Argentina vs France What my players will do to Messi during World Cup final – Didier Deschamps. Didier Deschamps, the head coach of France, has indicated that his squad would make an effort to minimize Argentina captain Lionel Messi’s influence when they play against each other in the 2022 FIFA World Cup final on Sunday in Qatar.
This was said by Deschamps in the post-game news conference following France’s 2-0 victory against Morocco in the World Cup semifinal match on Wednesday night.
Theo Hernandez and Randal Kolo Muani’s goals guaranteed that the reigning winners would advance to the World Cup championship game.
Argentina, which defeated Croatia 2-0 in this weekend’s World Cup final, will now play France.
After France overcame Morocco, Deschamps observed in the post-game news conference, “Messi is really flourishing in this tournament.”
“Four years ago, things were distinct. He played against us as a center forward, which was not what I had anticipated. Now that he has actual freedom, he is more like a two-man team and touches the ball frequently. He is physically quite fit.
His impact will be limited by us, just as it will be by the Argentinians with some of my guys. But four years later, Argentina isn’t in the same situation.
