Argentina dominated the game in the first opening 80 minutes and looked to be cruising so easily into their first World Cup title since 1986. The football world champion, Lionel Messi fired his side ahead from the penalty spot in the 23rd minute after Ousmane Dembele was judged to have tripped Angel Di Maria – although it looked to be a soft decision.
Di Maria added the second Argentina goal on the counter-attack after superb Mac Allister pas.
Giroud and Dembele were taken off, and replaced by Thuram and Kolo Muani.
Later, the amazing, Mbappe scored the first France goal from the penalty spot after Otamendi foul on Kolo Muani. Mbappe scored his second goal to level for France with a stunning strike.
However Lloris tipped Messi’s shot from range over the bar.
Two Martinez chances were blocked by Upamecano.
Superbly Lionel Messi saw Argentina back ahead after scoring from Martinez’s rebound.
Again Mbappe saw France level again after Montiel handball.
However in total triumph, Montiel scored winning penalty in the shootout to win the game for Argentina.
Argentina beat the defending champions France 4-2 on penalties after an enthralling 3-3 draw over 120 minutes.
Congratulations to Argentina for winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Live The Joy Life!
