Argentina defeats France on penalties in the final.
FIFA gave out the Golden Boot, Golden Glove, Golden Ball, Young Player, and Fair Play awards to recognise the great play during the 29 days of excitement, celebration, and sadness in Qatar.
Mbappe Kylian, Ollivier Giroud, Emiliano Martinez, and Messi , and Lionel all got awards for what they did at the 2022 World Cup during a ceremony after the final at the Lusail Stadium in Lusail, Qatar. In penalties, Argentina beat France 4–2 to win the World Cup 2022. This is Argentina’s third World Cup win, after 1978 and 1986. Leonel Messi, who is the heart of La Albiceleste, becomes the first football player ever to score in all five stages of the World Cup, including the final, and wins the World Cup Trophy.
Argentina Crowned Champions
After the exciting final, Argentina’s story ends like a fairy tale. Argentina had a 2-0 lead (Messi 23′ P, Di Maria 36′) until the 80th minute, when Kylian Mbappe scored two goals in 90 seconds. This almost ended Argentina’s chances of winning the final in regular time, and the game went into extra time, where Messi scored his second goal of the night and Mbappe finished his incredible hat trick to tie the score at 3-3. But Argentina beats France 4–2 in penalty kicks.
Les Blues has a great chance to keep their title and win the World Cup Trophy for the second year in a row. It was all Kylian Mbappe, who showed some superhuman skills to win the cup again, but Argentina’s mastermind Lionel Scaloni had a different plan to stop Les Blues, and his players fought until the very end and carried out his plan to win the World Cup 2022.
