Argentina-France history

Who is leading the series? Argentina 6-3-3
The last meeting. France won 4-3 on 30 June 2018 (FIFA World Cup)

As you can see above, these nations last met in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. It was the round of 16 and France scored three second-half goals (two by Kylian Mbappe) to beat Argentina 4-3. France became world champion that year.

Until then, these sides have not met since 2009. Argentina beat France 1-0 and 2-0 in international friendlies in 2007 and 2009 respectively.

The 2007 friendly was the first time these countries had played in 21 years, with France’s 2-0 victory in 1986 representing the most recent meeting before that.

In total, these two sides have met three times at the FIFA World Cup. Argentina beat France 1-0 in the group stage in 1930 and also beat the French 2-1 in the group stage in 1978. Then, of course, France won the aforementioned 2018 match in the Round of 16.
