It is finally here. The World Cup final has arrived and it will be a test of the two best teams in the world, Argentina and France. But who should you pick for your fantasy team? And what formation should you use? Let’s take a look at some of the key players, formations, and tactics that could help you decide on your final picks.

Players To Watch Out For

While it’s true that Messi and Mbappe may be the most important players on their respective teams, this doesn’t mean that they’re the only ones you should be watching. Here are some other players to keep an eye on:


Álvarez. Source:
  • Other than Messi (no discussion required to have him on the team), Julián Álvarez (343 points) and Olivier Giroud (372 points) take the lion’s share of votes to have in the team here. Giroud is only behind Mbappé in goals for France, and his size (1.90 meters) also helps him when going up against height advantage defenses. Álvarez is a similar player who can do many things well, but his main strength lies in his ability to create chances for himself or others.
  • We can also be in surprise by the performance of Thuram or Lautaro Martínez coming as Super Subs.


Griezmann. Source:
  • France shares a high percentage of great picks here. The key for France will be keeping Messi under control while also finding ways through Argentina’s defense. The midfielders that can help do both of these things are Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe. The surprise package of France Aurelien Tchouamen can cause a ruckus for Argentian with long-range shots. We might see Messi’s ex-clubmate Ousmane Dembélé cause defense concerns in Argentina.
  • France has to be wary of the speed, accuracy, and creativity that Enzo Fernández and Rodrigo de Paul have shown in previous matches. It’s possible that they could create a goal or assist for Lionel Messi or Julián Álvarez.


Molina. Source:
  • Both teams have star full-backs in Theo Hernández and Nahuel Molina. Hernández is known for his speed, which could cause trouble for Argentina’s defense.
  • Nicolás Otamendi has been a solid defender, especially when it comes to aerial duels. Ibrahima Konaté and Raphaël Varane impressed in the last match of France against Morocco. Argentina’s recent struggles in defense could make Cristian Romero the star defender his country has been missing.

Formation And Tactics

Both teams have strong attacking players so we’re going to see a lot of offloads and quick passing through the hands in midfield — but because both sets of forwards are so strong, they will want to get the ball out wide whenever possible.

It is possible to draft a team that fills three defensive positions with players whose primary strengths are goal-scoring and who can produce points for clean sheets. Formations of 4–3–3, 3–4–3, and 3 5 2 all provide opportunities for defenders who pursue offensive goals without sacrificing defense

Can Messi win the World Cup and finish his Argentina career on a high note, or will Mbappe assert himself as a superstar on Sunday’s final?
