Argentina & France — Head-to-Head
Argentina and France will compete for the third star Sunday. Argentina, led by Leo Messi, has not won a World Cup since 1986, with the help of Diego Armando Maradona. France is looking at a very different goal: winning two World Cups in a row. This is a milestone that only two teams have achieved: Italy in 1934 and 1938 and Brazil in 1958 and 1962.
