Argentina will be heading to the final match in Qatar after defeating Croatia, 3-0, on Tuesday night.
It’s the first time since 2014 that Argentina made the World Cup Final, and for Messi, it’s his last chance to possess that trophy. It will be Argentina’s sixth World Cup final appearance, tied third-most with Italy, but they haven’t won it since 1986.
There was no penalty shootout to move on. Instead, Argentina cruised to the final and Messi was a big part of it.
