World Cup Final: Messi trains with his team before Argentina-France

Argentina plays France in the World Cup final in Qatar as Lionel Messi faces one last chance to win soccer’s biggest prize. Messi’s final World Cup appearance could see the 35-year-old win the tournament for the first time, perhaps cementing his position as the greatest player in the history of the sport.

French striker Kylian Mbappé reaches the final level with Messi atop the golden boot standings with five goals, as two of football’s biggest stars go head-to-head on the grandest stage.

But amid coverage of the host country’s human rights record, treatment of migrant workers and attitude towards LGBTQ+ rights, Qatar was also presented with a dream final in which history will be made.

Will Messi achieve immortality by finally winning the World Cup, or can France crash the party to defend their title? Follow all the preparation and action on our live blog below:
