Lionel Messi had already given the South Americans the lead from the spot after Di Maria was brought down in the box by Ousmane Dembele.

The second goal came from a quick break from the defence as Messi brilliantly flicked the ball to Julien Alvarez, who then played in Alexis Mac Allister.

The Brighton midfielder then perfectly fed the ball to Di Maria, who fired past France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

The goal put Argentina very much in control in the deciding game of the tournament in Qatar.

And BBC pundit Lineker made sure to praise the goal as he took to social media.

He tweeted: “Wow. What a goal from Argentina.

“The genius of Messi, the vision of MacAllister, the finish of an Angel.”

Lineker then repeated the statement during the half-time analysis of the goal.


Argentina’s squad are hoping to win the World Cup for captain Messi.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner confirmed that it will be he last game in a World Cup as he starts to approach the end of his playing career.
