Argentina Brings Trophy Home in 2022 World Cup

by ikalmayang

Less than 12 hours ago, the whole world had exploded with the victory of Argentina in the 2022 FIFA World Cup thus putting one of the biggest sports events of the year to a roaring, deafening end.

Argentina had beaten France 4-2 on penalties, following an intense, gripping 3-3 draw in 120 minutes. In the end, it was Gonzalo Montiel who had scored the back-breaking penalty that had successfully brought the World Cup trophy home. 

That was not without its struggles – France’s Mbappe was a force to be reckoned with on his own, particularly in the second half as he scored his first goal in the 80-minute mark, followed by another one about 2 minutes later. However, regardless of the outcome, it is clear that Argentina had deserved this victory with their team members exclaiming they had “suffered so much to win this game”.

Having been so close yet so far for ages, Argentina prior to the 2022 World Cup boasted 26 World Cup finals matches, with 5 of its attempts shouldered by Lionel Messi, the country’s rabbit’s foot. Following this incredible victory marks the solidifying of Messi’s career as the greatest footballer of his time. As tens of thousands Argentines cheered and roared and bombarded the Argentinian players, what’s left to observe is the sheer elation and catharsis after what was quite literally a nail-biting, grueling and intense season. 

In what is possibly his last World Cup, Messi was celebrated – a beautiful outcome and spectacular way to end the World Cup in Qatar this year, and an overall incredible closing of his latest chapter in his career journey!
