FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 – The Finals: Quick Trivia about Argentina and France

Tags: Argentina, Fifa, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, France, Qatar, soccer.
Posted on 16 December 2022 by "T".

The World Cup final match between Argentina and France is scheduled on Sunday, December 18.

This will surely be a tough challenge for the French, who will take on Argentina and its star captain Lionel Messi in the hopes of becoming the third nation in history to win back-to-back men's World Cups.

What's more, an intense final against Argentina at the Lusail Stadium will see Kylian Mbappé face his PSG teammate, Messi, as the two nations clash to decide which team is the 2022 World Cup champion.

Messi & Mbappe

Before that exciting final, let's take a quick look on some interesting trivia about the two contenders.

Argentina
How many times has Argentina won the World Cup?
Answer: 2

  • 1978 (they were the host nation, a 3-1 win vs the Netherlands)
  • 1986 (held in Mexico, a 3-2 victory against West Germany)

In 18 World Cup tournaments, Argentina has 47 victories in 87 matches.

Argentina have been runners-up three times: in 1930, 1990 and 2014.

Argentina is now playing in their sixth World Cup final.

Argentina forward and captain Lionel Messi will be playing in his second World Cup final, after his side lost to Germany in 2014. The World Cup trophy is the only major award missing from his collection.

Argentina has never won the World Cup during Messi's era, and the 35-year-old said this will be his last appearance in soccer's biggest tournament.

France
How many times has France won the World Cup?
Answer: 2

  • 1998 (they were the host nation, a 3-0 win vs Brazil)
  • 2018 (held in Russia, a 4-2 victory vs Croatia)

France has competed in 16 World Cups, including the inaugural edition in 1930 and the tournament in Qatar 2022.

France was runner-up in 2006 and has finished 3rd twice (1958, 1986).

They have also hosted the tournament twice (1938, 1998).

France last failed to qualify for the World Cup in 1994 - actually, they did not play in the tournament for 12 years after missing out in both 1990 and 1994, but in 1998 they returned to win it all on home soil.

France is now playing in their fourth World Cup final.

Previous Meetings
Argentina and France have played against each other three times in the World Cup.

Their last meeting was in Russia in 2018, when France won 4-3 in the Round of 16.

Argentina won the first two meetings back in 1930 and 1978.

Teams that have won Back-to-Back World Cup titles
Should France's Les Bleus manage to successfully defend their title from 2018, they would be the third country in history to win consecutive men's World Cups.

They would join Italy (1934, 1938) and Brazil (1958, 1962), and they would become the first side to accomplish the feat in 60 years.

 

Who's your favorite team to win at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022?

 CALICUL18/12/2022 11:14:08 GMT
I read that few players from the French national team are in bed due to a mysterious illness, and this means that some footballers may not play in the World Cup final. Have you read something like this in your countries?
 Rogerio1018/12/2022 11:40:11 GMT
Yes i heard some news, but they said that they have only cold and that is. And that they will be prepared for finals.
 CALICUL18/12/2022 12:02:26 GMT
yes, i also read it now on another site and the problem has been clarified. I hope that France loses because i want Messi to have a world cup in his record. He is a huge footballer and can do shows in the stadium.

and what was the result?
 dule-vu19/12/2022 07:01:56 GMT
you dont watch football or just dont know this result?argentina won on penalties!
 geseco1219/12/2022 19:43:22 GMT
argentina is a fair champion, they dominated france from the beginning to the end, only in the last minutes they could find the discount for a gross mistake of otamendi and gave life to france who then put the tie and went to extra time, in penalties once again showed to have personality to kick.
 CALICUL19/12/2022 19:45:18 GMT
I'm glad that France missed that huge opportunity when the score was 3-3. Smile
 geseco1220/12/2022 23:52:40 GMT

it was a great game, both teams have a great potential, and they have shown it in their game, it was the best game of the world cup, also one of the best finals I have seen, for sure there will be more like it.

 geseco1223/12/2022 04:02:07 GMT

I hope you have a better year in betting and me, i don't know if i will have it, because football games are much too tight and unexpected results. Only a huge amount of luck could make me win something more serious.
 geseco1227/12/2022 18:26:52 GMT
even if many years go by I will always remember this great match of the Qatar 2022 world cup final, it was a match that will always remain in my memory, it will also be something special because I saw messi lift his first world cup, almost at his retirement.
