Today's the day - the 2022 World Cup fixtures will draw to a close later this afternoon, as Argentina face France in what is sure to be a dramatic final match-up in Qatar.


Lionel Messi's team secured a comfortable, confident victory over Croatia in their semi-final on Tuesday, while France overcame Morocco in a dramatic match that could have swung the African nation's way if they'd taken one of their chances earlier in the match.

The personal match-up of Messi versus PSG teammate Kylian Mbappé has dominated the build-up to the final, while the third-place play-off, which saw Croatia come out on top against Morocco 2-1, has only boosted fans' enthusiasm for the big game.
