Which team will Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi cheer for, which has both Argentina and France representative players in the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar?

Argentina and France will have the Qatar World Cup final at midnight on the 19th (Korean time) at the Lusail Stadium in Lusail, Qatar.

Argentina will challenge for the top of the World Cup for the first time in 36 years since the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.

Following the 2018 World Cup in Russia, France will challenge for the second consecutive title. So far, only Italy and Brazil have succeeded in winning the World Cup twice in a row.

Argentina and France have met a total of three times on the World Cup stage. This is the first time the final match has been played. In terms of opponents, Argentina has the advantage with 2 wins and 1 loss. 

However, in the most recent 2018 World Cup in Russia, France defeated Argentina 4-3 in the round of 16.

The finals of both teams are attracting attention with the confrontation between Lionel Messi (36, Argentina) and Kylian Mbafe (25, France).토토사이트

Coincidentally, the two players are eating together at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in the French league. In the finals, only one laughs.

PSG president Al-Khelaifi could not avoid the question of which team he supports, Argentina or France. He answered in an interview with French media ‘RMC Sport’.

Chairman Al-Khelaifi said, “Of course it is France,” and said, “Because my club, PSG, is in France.” In a way, this is the obvious answer.

“France is my second country,” said the Qatari-born. Of course, I will support France,” he added.

Mbappe was also mentioned. Chairman Al-Khelaifi said, “Mbappe is the only PSG player to play in two World Cup finals in a row. He did a great job.”

He even brought up Messi’s name. He said, “I hope France goes well, but I also hope that Argentina will do well in the World Cup with Messi.”
