Actor Mohanlal and former cricketer Ravi Shastri were spotted at the Lusail Stadium, attending the Argentina vs France FIFA World Cup 2022 final on Sunday.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup final between Argentina and
defending champion France has started. Argentina captain Lionel Messi makes his
26th appearance at the FIFA World Cup. Messi’s FIFA World Cup Journey started
16 years ago and today, he has a chance to win his first FIFA World Cup title.
However, France’s record against Argentina isn’t great –
they’ve only won three of twelve matches overall and two of three World Cup
encounters. In addition, Les Bleus have won seven straight World Cup knockout
games, only two short of Brazil’s record, as they fight to become just the
third team to successfully defend their title.
According to a BBC report, FIFA President Gianni Infantino
on December 18 said that FIFA is to reconsider the format of the 2026 World Cup
in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
The teams will increase from 32 to 48 for the competition
and were set to be divided into 16 groups of three, with the top two
progressing to the last 32, the report added.
In Qatar, the group stages included some exciting final
games as countries tried to win a two-two place to qualify for the last 16.
The Argentina lineup for the World Cup final includes
Emiliano Martínez, Nahuel Molina, Cristian Romero, Nicolás Otamendi, Nicolas
Tagliafico, Angel Di Maria, Rodrigo De Paul, Enzo Fernández, Alexis Mac
Allister, Julián Álvarez, and Lionel Messi.
The France squad
includes Hugo Lloris, Jules Koundé, Raphael Varane, Dayot Upamecano, Theo
Hernandez; Aurélien Tchouaméni, Antoine Griezmann, Adrien Rabiot, Ousmane
Dembélé, Kylian Mbappé, and Olivier Giroud.
