Argentina, Messi Win World Cup, Beating France In Penalty Shootout!

Messi holding the World Cup – following Argentina’s victory

On Sunday Argentina won their third World Cup in incredible fashion beating France 4-2 on penalties.

Lionel Messi scored a brace in the fiercely contested 3-3 draw and Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick to bring France back from 2-0 and 3-2 down.

Argentina seemed to be on cruise control after scoring twice in the first half, but Mbappe scored in the 80th-minute from the penalty spot and volleyed in a sublime equaliser just a minute later to ensure the game went to extra time.

Messi put Argentina in front again but Mbappe levelled again via another penalty.


Mbappe is now only the second man to score a World Cup final hat-trick after England’s Geoff Hurst in 1966.

In the ensuing penalty shootout,  Argentina keeper Emiliano Martinez brilliantly saved Kingsley Coman’s shot and Aurelien Tchouameni fired wide.

Substitute full back Gonzalo Montiel, who gave away the penalty for France’s third goal was given the chance for the ultimate redemption, which he calmly took by sending Hugo Lloris the wrong way.
