Lionel Messi 2022 World Cup Qatar Winner:

On December 18th, Argentina and France played the final game of a competition that they had both won twice before. Lionel Messi and Ángel Di María scored two early goals for Argentina, while France did not have any shots on goal until after the 70th minute. However, some substitutions in the 71st minute gave France a boost, and they were awarded a penalty kick after a foul by Nicolás Otamendi. Kylian Mbappé scored the penalty and another goal in less than two minutes, tying the game 2-2.

The game went into extra time, where Messi scored another goal for Argentina in the 108th minute. But Mbappé was awarded another penalty kick in the 115th minute, which he converted to complete his hat-trick and tie the game 3-3. The game was then decided by a penalty shootout, which Argentina won 4-2. This win was Argentina’s third World Cup victory and their first since 1986. It was also the first time in 20 years that a South American team had won the World Cup, as Argentina was also the reigning champions of the Copa América.
