Lionel Messi finally won the World Cup in 2022 as he led his beloved Argentina to victory. They defeated the French in the Final after winning a dramatic penalty shootout. But Les Bleus didn’t stop fighting and their inspiration forward Kylian Mbappe had the game of his life (via ESPN).
Mbappe became the second player ever to score three goals in a World Cup Final. Unfortunately for the PSG star, it wasn’t enough for his team to beat the French. Damian Martinez’s cynical gamesmanship distracted the French players during the shootout and the South Americans won the trophy.
