Celebration erupted in Buenos Aires and all over the world as millions rejoiced with Argentina’s victory over France in the FIFA World Cup.
Going down in history as one of the best games of football ever played, the match for the ages between the two titans went down to the wire, down to the final minute. A scenario fit for a finale, the south American team managed to take an early 2-0 lead during the first half thanks to both Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria. Superstar Kylian Mbappe however would not yield, scoring two goals within two minutes before regulation ended to force extra time. Seemingly shutting the doors on a comeback Messi scored once again in the 109th minute—only for Mbappe to complete his hat trick, forcing a penalty shoot-out. Argentina would then go 4-2 in the shoot-out to secure the trophy, the perfect conclusion to Messi’s historical career.
Sights from all over the world
If anyone should be celebrating, it’s Messi and the Argentinian football team. See the Golden Ball winner dance out of sheer joy on the table in their dressing room.
