Russia 2018: France Beat Argentina In 7-Goal Thriller
Argentina have crashed out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup after they were beaten 4-3 by France in the Round of 16 on Saturday.
Antoine Griezmann gave France an early lead when he converted a penalty after Marcos Rojo had brought down Kylian Mbappe in the danger area in the 11th minute.
Angel Di Maria’s superb strike just before half time put Argentina back in the game and rekindled their hope.
Argentina took a remarkable lead just after the break, thanks to Gabriel Mercado’s effort that sent fans at the stadium into wild celebration.
But the French side found their way back when Benjamin Pavard drew level in the 57th minute before Mbappe scored two goals in just four minutes to extend France lead.
Substitute Sergio Aguero reduced the deficit at added time, but that was not enough to save the day for the Lionel-Messi led side.
France have now qualified for the quarter final, and will play the winner between Uruguay and Portugal.
