Ranking the World Cup Final

15 December 2022

Hello Rank Squad!

It’s finally here – 62 games later, we have our World Cup Final set, and it’s Argentina vs. France in the showpiece. Can Lionel Messi finally achieve international football immortality or will France become the first side in over half a century to retain the crown? There’s narratives galore, so we thought we’d dig deep into where this game is won and lost.

We talk Messi vs. Mbappe, Alvarez vs. Giroud, the genius of Antoine Griezmann, Argentina’s siege mentality, France’s ability to get over the line, and tactical rigidity vs. tactical flexibility – as well as two cracking national anthems, and our predictions as to how it all goes.

It’s Ranks!
