Titans to Clash in Cup
A pair of soccer heavyweights will face off in the men's World Cup final, with France taking on Argentina after beating Morocco 2-0 in yesterday's semifinal match. Argentina handled Croatia 3-0 Monday. Only eight teams have won the World Cup title in the tournament's history, with both Argentina and France having won twice. France returns as the reigning champion, having won the 2018 cup, beating Croatia 4-2. The dominant storyline will be whether Argentine superstar Lionel Messi—named the world's best male player a record seven times—can lead his squad to the country's first title since 1986. The match is set for 10 am ET Sunday on Fox. See the tournament's best goals (so far) here. Separately, the wife of former sports journalist Grant Wahl confirmed his cause of death as an undetected aortic aneurysm. Wahl collapsed Saturday while covering the Argentina-Netherlands match.
