Argentina will be tough in the finals, says French keeper Lloris

Doha: The Captain and goalkeeper of French team, Hugo Lloris said that the World Cup Final match against Argentina will be hard.

"Argentina are a really great team. They have shown how competitive they are, and they have this player (Messi) who has left his mark on the sport," said Lloris after Wednesday's 2-0 semi-final win over Morocco.

"There is everything in place for it to be a great game, but we will try to turn things our way," he was quoted as saying.

The keeper reflected on a tough semi-final in which France were forced to defend for long periods after Theo Hernandez's fifth-minute opener and were even deep in their box after Kolo Muani netted a second goal in the 79th minute.

"We really suffered, and we are tired but satisfied because we have given ourselves a golden opportunity to make history for France. A second final in four years, so even everything wasn't perfect, from tomorrow we have to start our recovery," Lloris said.

While Lionel Messi is looking to lift his first World Cup, France are looking to retain the title they won in 2018 in what promises to be a tough game for both sides.

The final match of the greatest football fiesta in the world is scheduled to be held on Sunday, and fans expects a stunning match between the two teams.
