The final will also be Lionel Messi’s last World Cup appearance, with the 35-year-old looking to cap off a record-breaking career by winning the one trophy that still alludes him.

Dembele joined Barcelona in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund and played alongside Messi for four seasons.

Speaking to reporters, Dembele said: “He’s an exceptional player, one of those who made me love Barcelona along with Iniesta. I spent four great years with him. He’s a normal guy in the dressing room, he helps young players. He gave me a lot. He’s difficult to control and we’ll have to do everything we can to make sure he touches the ball as little as possible.”
