On Sunday, December 18, at the Lusail Stadium, Argentina and France played in the final match of the FIFA World Cup, 2022.
Until Kylian Mbappe converted a penalty and scored an incredible equaliser to force extra time, Argentina had been dominating for the majority of the game. As opportunities swirled about at both ends, more crazy football ensued.
Argentina appeared to have won the game after Messi's late-game goal in extra time, but only seconds later did they give up a penalty. The faultless Mbappe made that conversion as well, making him the first player since 1966 to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final. He ultimately lost, however, as Argentina prevailed in the penalty shootout.
Who is the Winner?
Argentina defeated France 4-2 on penalties.
