France to wear 2018 World Cup-winning all-blue kit in Argentina final despite not using it once this tournament

FRANCE will be hoping that they have struck it lucky again after the kits were decided for their clash with Argentina.

Holders France will now face Argentina in the World Cup final on Sunday after the South Americans had booked their place by beating Croatia 3-0.

Didier Deschamps side triumphed back in 2018 in Russia while wearing an all-Blue kit.

Now they are set to be decked out in the exact same colours as they were the day they thumped Croatia four years ago.

The French have worn blue shirts with white shorts and red socks for the entirety of their adventure in Qatar.

That, of course, resembles the French Tricolore – with the only exception coming in their final group-stage game against Tunisia.

Argentina will be wearing their iconic white and blue striped shirt, white shorts, and white and blue socks this weekend.

And due to a kit clash, that means the French will have to switch their outfit and take the pitch in blue shirts and socks to match their jerseys.

Both nations are hoping to win the World Cup for a third time.

But it is France who have even more history on their minds.

They are hoping to become the first nation since Brazil in 1962 to successfully defend the crown.

Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron allegedly wants to take a group of injured players to the final.

Deschamps has managed to guide reigning champions to the verge of another crown despite suffering a number of crippling injury blows.

Midfield duo Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante were both ruled out of the tournament while Karim Benzema was selected for action before he was ruled out too.

However, Macron reportedly wants to get these players involved and in attendance for Sunday’s showpiece.
