La Albiceleste has deemed the favorite to win the competition before it even started. Although their shocking defeat in the first match against a relatively poor Saudi Arabia side has broken the bubble, it has worked as a reality check, and they have improved significantly since then. 

Argentina’s performance against Poland showed us how they can easily dominate any opponent on a good day. Head coach Lionel Scaloni finally seems to have found the perfect starting XI for Argentina.

This cohesive midfield, Julian Alvarez’s brilliance, the determined backline of Otamendi and Cuti Romero, and Lionel Messi’s magic are all that Argentina needs to win this world cup.

The defending champions have broken the World Cup curse and now seem to be in fine form. They are fighting very hard to lift the prestigious trophy twice in a row. If they succeed in doing so, it will be a historic moment for French football. 

France has been unbeaten in the tournament so far. Their gameplay has been very dependent on their main man, Kylian Mbappe. It is really shocking how well they are playing in the absence of Karim Benzema, Paul Pogba, and Ngolo Kante. 

Another very important player for them in this tournament so far has been Antoine Griezmann. Griezmann might not be the same player that he used to be 4 years ago but he is still an underrated gem for the France National team. He is the main playmaker of this French side and he runs their game.

The lethal forward line of France is one of their biggest strengths. There is no doubt at all in the fact that they are one of the favorites to lift the trophy once again this year.

France defeated Poland in the Round of 16 and England in the Quarterfinals. Their performance against England was particularly very good and it spoke tons about their character and form. France really seems to be in good shape and we predict that Qatar 2022 final will be a neck-to-neck fight.
