And then there were four…
For some fans, the title of football’s GOAT has been settled. This is due to Lionel Messi’s performance in Argentina’s quarter-final win over the Netherlands. And that was helped by Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal’s exit to the loud Moroccans.
Argentina vs Croatia
We’ve seen the best of both worlds from Argentina. They went ahead, conceded at the death, and then winning a nail-biting shootout. The loss to the Saudis was a complete wake-up call. It was a blip in their last 41 matches (W30, D10). They’re a game away from a sixth World Cup final, and likely Messi’s final chance at claiming football’s holy grail. Croatia hailed as the knockout kings, broke the hearts of millions after dumping Brazil out of the tournament. Luka Modric has been instrumental in their progression. It seems like they could set up a consecutive final with France. But Argentina, Messi, and the traveling fans at Lusail might have what it takes to reach the final within 90 minutes.
France vs Morocco
France, without a clean sheet, had to endure a tough assignment against England. Fortunate in a sense that Harry Kane squandered his penalty. Giroud and Mbappe will be aware of the defensive monsters that await them and will avoid any complacency. Morocco has made history at this tournament by becoming the first African nation to make it to the semi-finals. An early goal for Morocco could lead to another shock, but France can outscore. The firepower of the reigning champions will end the African dream and meet the Argentinians in the Final.
