FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022: Argentina Advances to Final Behind Messi and Alvarez
Argentina played their most complete game of the tournament in their semifinal matchup vs Croatia. Lionel Messi scored on a PK and assisted on 2 of Julian Alvarez's goals. Alvarez also drew the red card that led to Messi's PK goal. The past and future of Argentina Soccer worked together to get their country to the Final. Perhaps no one has more pressure than Messi to deliver a World Cup. His resume is impeccable and the only thing missing is a World Cup.
After their embarrassing loss to Saudi Arabia in their opening group match, the team has started to gel and figure it out. Everyone is expecting an Argentina and France final but Morocco has been another Cinderella story and they will not go out without a fight.
