Despite being two goals up on their opponent going into the final match of the World Cup 2022, France played an outstanding match and managed to draw Argentina with a score of 3-3 after 120 minutes. Lionel Messi (23′ penalty kick, 108′) and Angel Di Maria (36′) are the players that have scored for “Albiceleste.” Kylian Mbappe scored all three goals for the continental squad in the 80th (penalty kick), 81st (penalty kick), and 118th (penalty kick) minutes.
Argentina defeated France 4-2 on penalties in the shootout. All four Argentine athletes successfully completed the 11-meter kick. Members of “Les Bleus,” Kingsley Coman and Aurelien Tchouameni, struggled to make accurate kicks at this time.
Argentina has already achieved this accomplishment three times in its lengthy and distinguished history. Prior to that, they received the titles of king and queen in 1978 and 1986. In his professional career, Messi has never previously taken home the gold cup that goes along with the world championships.
Mbappe will have scored four goals overall in the final games of the biggest football festival on earth after scoring a hat trick in the World Cup 2022 title game, which is more than any other player has ever scored in those tournaments.
At the same time, Mbappe’s hat-trick helped him finish with a total of eight goals at the 2022 World Cup, making him the tournament’s leading scorer. With this achievement, he surpasses Messi by one goal, who scored twice in the most recent game.
Mbappe has not only scored 8 goals for his side, but he also has 2 assists, which means he has helped his teammates score. Unfortunately, despite the brilliance of the striker, who is only 23 years old, France was unable to successfully defend their championship.
