France showed great character and zeal today after going 1-2 down to knock Argentina out of the #worldcup as well as booking a ticket to the Quarter Finals by beating Argentina 4-3.

It was indeed a very entertaining game but most football fans didn't expect today's goal margin owning to the fact fans predicted a more tactical and defensive game. To Nigerians, they might have been saddled 2 days ago on how Argentina knocked them out of the world cup but must of them watched today's match so as to see France knock Argentina out of the tournament. 

And I dare say "they are blissful".

Atletico Madrid playmaker Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring for France with a wonderful spot kick while Angel Di Maria equalized for Argentina in the closing minutes of the first half.

Argentina came back to the second half with full force as they piled pressure on France. It only took 3mins after restart for Argentina to make the pressure count as Gabriel Mercado slutted in another goal in the 48th minutes, leading France 1-2.

Benjamin Pavard equalized for France in the 57th minutes while Kylian Mbappe made sure Argentina couldn't come back by scoring two goals in quick succession. He score in the 64th and 68th minutes respective. Lionel Messi toiled and toiled by was able to make a great impert in the game.

Sergio Aguero scored a consolation for Argentina in the enjury time and unfortunately for them, there was no enough time to turn things around. Finals score 4-3 means the Argentines are out of the worldcup during round of 16.
