Argentina captain Lionel Messi says Sunday’s final will be the last World Cup game of his career.
The 35-year-old forward scored his fifth goal of Qatar 2022 and helped set up two others in Tuesday’s 3-0 semi-final win over Croatia.
Playing in his fifth World Cup, Messi has never won the game’s biggest prize.
Argentina will play France , in the final, when Messi is set to make a record 26th appearance in a men’s World Cup.
The 2026 World Cup will be held in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
