Fabio Capello, former head coach of AC Milan, Real Madrid, Roma, Juventus, England and Russia, expects French PSG strikers Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi to face off in the World Cup final.
"How do I see the Argentina-France final? This is not only a confrontation between countries, but also a confrontation between Messi and Mbappe. Messi the first games went almost on foot, but he fascinated me with his game against Croatia. Then we saw the Messi of the Barcelona era.
On the side of France, Kylian Mbappe, who has everything: strength, speed and, above all, purpose.
I expect an exciting final with several goals and I do not rule out that everything will be decided in extra time or in a penalty shootout," Marca quoted Capello as saying.
Mbappe and Messi each scored five goals in six World Cup matches. Mbappe had two assists while Messi had three.
The finals between Argentina and France will take place on Sunday at 19:00 Yerevan time.
