The situation 

Argentina was proclaimed world champion last night, raising its third crown at the Lusail stadium and catapulting Lionel Messi into football history . However, Artificial Intelligence measures the quality and quantity of the actions performed by each player. In other words, an action will be valued positively when the probability of your team scoring a goal increases or the probability of conceding one decreases. And negatively when they penalize the team, decreasing the probability of scoring a goal and increasing the probability of being scored. In addition, the AI ​​does not take penalty shootouts into account to assess, in this case, the goalkeepers. An XI in which Mbappe reigns .

Theo joined the team after his brother was injured during the opening match against Australia, his final was not his best match, but his path through Qatar serves to make him the best left side of the tournament. The champion, Argentina , puts Messi and Julián Álvarez. The ’10’ registers the second best evaluation of the XI with a 4.9. His 7 goals and 3 assists served to win against Mexico and give the albiceleste a breather in order to overcome the group stage, as well as against the Netherlands and Croatia, in the quarterfinals and semifinals respectively. Julián Álvarez did not start as a starter for Scaloni, but his good work in the first two games helped him earn a place and since then he has been key for the Argentine forward. He leaves Qatar with 4 goals, two of them against Croatia earned him a pass to the final. Croatia, third classified, puts up to three players in the XI. Gvardiol and Lovren stand out as the best center-back pairing in the tournament. Josko in particular, who at 20 years old, has dazzled the world with a great performance.

Noppert , the goalkeeper for the Netherlands, may have been the big surprise of the tournament.
