Lionel Messi Trophy

The World Cup final “for eternity” descended into madness, and then into perhaps the greatest game ever played, around 7:40 p.m. here at the Lusail Stadium, with Argentine dreams crystallizing and then, suddenly, in 96 seconds, paralyzed.

Argentina beats France on penalty kicks, winning World Cup for third time.

Lionel Messi has finally added a World Cup Trophy to his glittering case of hardware following Argentina’s win over France in penalties following a six-goal thriller at the 2022 World Cup Final in Qatar.

Kylian Mbappé momentarily shattered them. Lionel Messi rekindled them with what could have been a storybook goal, to put Argentina ahead 3-2 in extra time.

But Mbappé equalized from the penalty area with minutes remaining.

And so the game went to penalties. And so, up stepped the Argentine hero, Emi Martinez.

The goalkeeper, nicknamed Dibu.

The goalkeeper, nicknamed “Dibu,” sprung to his right to push away Kingsley Coman’s second spot-kick for France, after Messi and Mbappé had converted. He pranced around the penalty area, pumping his fist into the air.

He then shimmied after his sheer size forced Aurelien Tchouameni, France’s next taker, to drag his penalty wide.

Marcus Thuram then scored for France, but Argentina had been perfect. Gonzalo Montiel scored the winner. Messi fell to his knees. Teammates crowded around him.

The French team on Sunday morning said the match will amount to a “face-to-face” competition between the four best strikers and top goal scorers in this year’s World Cup.

Messi said in October that the tournament in Qatar would be his last World Cup.

Argentina entered the 2022 men’s World Cup in Qatar knowing it was likely their last chance at the sport’s biggest prize while it still had arguably the greatest player of all-time on their side.
