France and Argentina have sailed into the summit clash of the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. Both teams will lock horns for the coveted trophy at the Lusail Iconic Stadium on Sunday.

This will be superstar Messi’s final chance of winning the mega event. The World Cup trophy has eluded Messi’s glittering cabinet in his illustrious career so far.

On the other hand, France’s power-packed line-up demolished their opponents while reaching the final of the tournament.

Meanwhile, the Golden Boot race for the mega event has heated up. With Kylian Mbappe not scoring against Morocco, the Golden Boot race has actually heated up. Mbappe is now tied with Messi with five goals each going into the all-important final.

Fans are eager to know what will happen if both the World Cup top scorers are tied in goals?

Neither of the players has won the prestigious award in their careers and would like to leave their mark in the history of the game by winning it.

In case Messi, Mbappe or any other player gets tied at the same number of goals, the player with the least number of penalties will be awarded the Golden Boot.

While Messi has converted three penalties--one each against Netherlands, Croatia and Saudi Arabia so far, all of Mbappe’s goals are from the outfield.

In case Messi scores and Mbappe does not, Messi will be taking the prestigious award by automatic choice.

Moreover, if Messi and Mbappe will be tied in the number of penalties and outfield goals, the coveted award will go to the player with the most assists.
