As yet another sign of soccer’s growing popularity, the match generated huge interest nationally.

Post-match ratings were massive, becoming the most watched World Cup semifinal telecast in history.

La Albiceleste will be taking on France in the World Cup final on Sunday, with an incredible amount of individual talent on the field.

Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezman and Aurélien Tchouaméni are all major international figures.

That could lead to an even larger ratings number for the finals.

It also should lead to a spectacular, fast paced, high flying matchup between two offensive minded teams.

Heading into Sunday, Argentina are slight favorites to finally give Lionel Messi his final missing trophy.
