The final of the 2022 World Cup is upon us!

Who will be crowned champion as the winter tournament in Qatar comes to an end?

GOAL is here to guide you through the final match, which takes place on Sunday, and predict which team will write themselves into football history with the GOAL Predictions show, powered by Parimatch.

Join the hosts Yarns and Jessica in taking a close look at the finalists as two-time tournament winners Argentina take on 2018 champions France. They are joined by guest and content creator David Kufi.

Of course, so much of the narrative will be about Lionel Messi as he looks to add this final, most prestigious and elusive trophy to his glittering collection. Aged 35 now, this will likely be his last chance to win the tournament, too.

However, Les Bleus will have little reason to feel sentimental about such matters as they hunt down back-to-back World Cup triumphs. What's more, star man Kylian Mbappe can become the youngest player since Brazil's Pele to win the tournament twice if France succeed in Qatar.

Argentina won the tournament in 1978 and 1986, while France lifted it in 1998 and 2018. And so, whoever wins on Sunday will be adding a third World Cup to their collection.

History beckons!
