The year before, at the 2022 globe Cup, Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, achieved a remarkable victory over France, so achieving the highest position in the globe.
The dramatic final match between Argentina and France resulted in Argentina winning the World Cup for the third time on December 18, 2022. Argentina prevailed in the penalty shootout to win the tournament.
In the World Cup final, Kylian Mbappe became the second player to achieve a hat-trick, surpassing Lionel Messi’s two goals in the match. However, despite Messi’s goals, France was able to level the score between the two teams. While the score was tied 3-3 after two extra periods, Kingsley Coman and Aurelien Tchouameni both failed to convert their penalty kicks, which stopped Les Bleus from reaching the top of the globe for the second consecutive time.
A beautiful conclusion and a powerful confirmation of El Pulga’s dominance, Messi’s victory with Argentina in the 2022 World Cup is a fantastic accomplishment.
Following the spectacular evening that took place on December 18, 2022 in Lusail, Qatar, Lionel Messi’s magnificent career was declared to have reached its conclusion. After a multitude of victories in the Champions League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Copa Armeria, King’s Cup, and other competitions, the captain of Argentina achieved his goal of adding a World Cup medal to his extensive collection of trophies.
Also, Messi made a significant impact on the supporters with his performance. El Pulga had done everything in their power to bring Argentina the glory it had been waiting for for a very long time. They had scored two goals in a dramatic final, and they had also successfully converted a penalty in the shootout. He was also awarded the Golden Ball, which is given to the player who is considered to be the greatest of the World Cup 2022.
Which of the following brings an end to the discussion on the GOAT (greatest in history)? Not likely at all. Despite the fact that Messi now has the World Cup in his remarkable trophy collection, there will always be people who prefer Cristiano Ronaldo, Diego Maradona, or Pele over Messi. However, many people believe that Messi would not care in the least about winning the World Cup under any circumstances. There is never-ending discussion on who is the true best of all time.
But the thing that matters the most to Messi is that no one can point out a major championship title that he has not won during his career. Currently, the M10 not only improves it but also guides and motivates Argentina to achieve success, much like Maradona did in Mexico in 1986.
Messi dominates the competition in Qatar 2022. He scored in every game, with the exception of the group stage victory against Poland, in which Wojciech Szczesny saved a penalty kick to prevent the superstar, who was born in 1987, from scoring.
Stunning goals against Mexico and Australia, outstanding assists for Nahuel Molina and Julian Alvarez against the Netherlands and Croatia, and in the championship match against France, he led Argentina to victory by scoring from a penalty kick in the first half of the match, shining in extra time, and winning the penalty shootout that ultimately decided the match.
It is impossible to imagine a more ideal competition for Messi than this one. This is the ideal embellishment for a career that is unrivaled.
The brilliance of Mbappe is not enough to take the French squad to victory.
It was against Argentina that Kylian Mbappe came close to winning a second World Cup. He had already won one World Cup with France.
After France had fallen down 0-2 in the first half, they were able to come back and win the match thanks to two goals scored by “Ninja Turtles” in a span of 97 seconds during the final ten minutes of the competition. After that, the superstar player for Paris Saint-Germain scored a third goal to complete a hat-trick in the match. Additional time. However, despite the brilliance of Mbappe, France was unable to become the first team since Brazil in 1962 to win the World Cup in consecutive years.
In light of the fact that the French team was infected with the influenza virus throughout the preparations for the play, it is a great accomplishment that they were able to fight back from being two goals down and force the match to go to a penalty shootout. Raphael Varane, Ibrahima Konate, Dayot Upamecano, Adrien Rabiot, and Kingsley Coman were all unable to practice two days prior to the final. However, three of them, Varane, Upamecano, and Rabiot, were able to participate from the beginning of the match.
Throughout the majority of the play, it was clear that they were lacking in enthusiasm. However, Mbappe gave them hope by scoring a penalty kick in the 80th minute. As a result of the dismal performance of Les Bleus in the first half, Deschamps was forced to change Olivier Giroud and Ousmane Dembele before the completion of the first half. Unfortunately, the situation did not improve in the second half. As a result of the fact that even Antoine Griezmann, who is considered to be one of the best players in the competition, was unable to keep up with the game, Deschamps was forced to replace him with twenty minutes remaining.
In a classic final, the great players come out and make a difference, but France’s top stars remain mute until Mbappe bursts in the 80th minute. This is the moment when the game is played. Even though he came close to bringing glory to the team, Mbappe was ultimately unable to lead France to victory. Despite his efforts, France was ultimately defeated. At this point, he has accomplished the unquestionable feat of scoring a hat-trick in the World Cup final, which has garnered the admiration of everyone concerned.
The victory of Argentina equals the victory of the entire continent as well as the victory of history.
Argentina’s victory over France, the reigning winners of the World Cup, in Qatar brought an end to South America’s twenty-year drought to win the tournament.
There has not been a South American team that has carried the trophy since Brazil won their fifth World Cup in 2002; yet, Argentina was the team that halted European domination by winning the tournament. The fact that the South American continent has finally produced a global champion is a big morale booster, especially considering the fact that there are so many outstanding players from countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Colombia.
Fans from South America made up the greatest group of spectators in Qatar the previous year. The successes of Lionel Messi and his colleagues have had a huge impact on Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay’s decision to officially co-host the World Cup in 2030. This is a region that is tremendously passionate about football, and the event will be held in Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina. A hundred years old.
