The happiness of Argentina fans is overloaded. The last game of Lionel Messi made everyone emotional.
On 18th December, 2022, in Qatar, Argentina made history. Billions of Argentina fans got to cry due to the win of the FIFA World Cup against France 4-2 on penalties. Not only Argentina fans, but also the whole world was happy for the win Lionel Messi.
Screams of joy were heard in response to Lionel Messi’s successful penalty kick that started the scoring. Mosh pits formed as a result of Angel Di Mara’s second goal. As the second half progressed, the atmosphere was joyful. Fans hugged and leaped while wearing white and blue striped jerseys with glitter flags daubed on their cheeks and arms.
The Frenchman Kylian Mbappé’s two goals in the space of two minutes dimmed the atmosphere like an ice bath.
The 23-year-old scored twice in 97 seconds to extend the game over 90 minutes and, after revoking the captain of Argentina’s stunning extra-time winning, became the second player to achieve a final hat-trick.
But that was Messi’s last tournament. It seemed like the FIFA World Cup trophy was waiting for Lionel Messi. As their captain, he led them to their first World Cup victory since the late, great Diego Maradona did it in 1986. This was the 35-year-sixth old’s final participation in this tournament, and it ended in glory.
Juan Pablo Iglesias, 48, stated, “This is the best thing that could happen, like heaven.” Manuel, his eight-year-old son, was in his arms, and he was crying with happiness. Turning to face his son, the father declared, “We’re champs.” “We’re the best in the entire globe!”
As she shouted his name, Diaz almost broke into tears. The last time Argentina won the tournament was in 1986 when Maradona’s “Hand of God” goal helped in ousting England.
This is our good fortune that we could witness the last win of Lionel Messi. Argentina played very well. Each player gave their best to grab the FIFA World Cup. Their dedication dramatically changed the whole game. It is a dream that comes true to all those who were in hope for Argentina. This victory Argentina won rightfully.
