WHAT HAPPENED? Mbappe will come up against seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi when France take on Argentina to decide who will take home the trophy and Tchouameni believes his co-star will make the difference.

WHAT THEY SAID: "For me, Kylian is the best... and he will prove it on Sunday," he said to TyC Sports, adding: "We're all going to work together to achieve it. We're going to make a plan, recover well and work to win this game because Messi will be there, but he also has 10 other players by his side."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: France head into Sunday's match looking to defend their crown as world champions, having won the title in 2018. Argentina, meanwhile, hope to give Messi a proper send-off by securing the trophy in what will be his final game for the national team.
