Lionel Messi is unquestionably one of the greatest footballers the world has ever seen, but there is still a notable gap on his CV in the shape of a World Cup trophy. That could all change if he can help guide this Argentina side to a World Cup 2022 victory, though.

They're a strong side – I've been particularly impressed with their ability to win the ball back so far. Knowing they can rely on their defence so heavily allows them to play with much more forward momentum. The result is a true spectacle, with intelligent movement that creates opportunities from nowhere. They were better in the Argentina v Australia game than the 2-1 scoreline would suggest.

Don't dismiss the Netherlands though. Their side is full of experience and talent, and they've looked good in the competition so far. A 3-1 victory in the Netherlands v USA game brought them this far, and they'll be determined to upset the party for the South American side.

I really couldn't call this one, but I'm sure it will be one of the best ties of the competition. You won't want to miss it – read on to make sure you don't!
