Javier Mascherano - 5

Brought down Mbappe in a dangerous position, and Griezmann hit the crossbar from the following set-piece. Picked up as the first half wore on but the second half was all France as Argentina had to go for goals.

Ever Banega - 4.5

A few awkward moments early on - he and Tagliafico needed some time to get on the same wavelength. A few good tackles but France's central defence was watertight, preventing him from pulling strings. 

Angel Di Maria - 5.5

A poor start to the match but a spectacular strike levelled the scores at 1-1 five minutes before half-time.

Enzo Perez - 5

Opened up a first-half chance in the box, lifting the ball over Hernandez for Mercado, who couldn't deliver a good ball. 

Lionel Messi - 5

Very involved in the first half but did nothing with the ball once he had it. He had no out-and-out striker to play off in the match and it gave Argentina no bite. Worked some space for himself to get a shot away, that deflected off Mercado and in. 

Christian Pavon - 4

Poor deliveries and decision making on the right-hand side. He was outsmarted by Lucas Hernandez. 


Federico Fazio - 3

Came on for Marcos Rojo at half-time and Argentinian hearts in mouths as he almost threw their 3-2 lead away with a poor backpass to Armani. 

Sergio Aguero - 4

Subbed on for Enzo Perez with 25 minutes to go. Pulled one back for Argentina in stoppage time. 

Maximiliano Meza - 5

Arrived for Christian Pavon with 15 minutes to go.
