But while Lionel Scaloni’s squad continue their final preparations for the big game, their partners have been living it up in Qatar.
And a total of 19 of them posed for snaps ahead of a meal in Doha on Tuesday evening.
Among them were the partners of Emi Martinez, Nicolas Otamendi, Cristian Romero, Lautaro Martinez and Julian Alvarez.
But Messi’s wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, was one of the few Wags who could not make the pre-game meal.
However, she is out in Qatar supporting her husband and is expected to be at the match tonight.
Argentina booked their place in the last four with a penalty shootout victory over Holland on Friday.
The South Americans raced into a two-goal lead but were then pegged back in dramatic fashion as Wout Weghorst’s late double sent the game to extra time.
It then went to spot kicks, before keeper Martinez was the hero as he saved two to keep Messi’s dream of a World Cup triumph alive.
Meanwhile, Croatia stunned pre-tournament favourites Brazil to reach the semis for a second successive time.
Neymar thought he had sealed the five-time world champions’ place in the last four with a goal in the first period of extra time.
But Bruno Petkovic equalised in the 117th minute, before Croatia went on to win on penalties.
The winner of Croatia vs Argentina will play one of Morocco or France in Sunday’s final.
