The 2022 FIFA World Cup has come to an end and the tournament was dominated by the scoring aspects of Paris Saint-Germain stars Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi.
Both players showed their scoring capabilities throughout the tournament, even in the World Cup Final when Messi scored a brace and Mbappe scored a hat-trick, with Argentina coming away with the win in penalty kicks (4-2).
However, the two players also show their capabilities to create for their teammates in their fixtures throughout the tournament. Squawka noted on Twitter that the two players were in the top three regarding the most chances created.
Antoine Griezmann created more chances than any other player at the 2022 World Cup.

Messi created 21 scoring chances for Argentina en route to the South American side, lifting the World Cup. Only Antoine Griezmann created more for his national team, as the Atletico Madrid star had 22.
As for Mbappe, the 23-year-old was tied for third place with fellow France national team teammates Theo Hernandez and Ousmane Dembele with 11, so not only did the two PSG stars find the back of the net, but they also created for others, which might explain why both nations reached the final.
