Argentina vs France- Highlights from the FIFA World Cup Final In 2009, Lusail Stadium hosted one of the best, if not the best, World Cup finals ever. Argentina, who had the advantage for much of the game, were forced into extra time after Kylian Mbappe scored a spectacular equalizer in extra time.
More insane football ensued as a result of chances flying around at both ends. When Messi scored late in extra time, Argentina seemed to win, but they gave up a penalty a few seconds later. With his flawless conversion, Mbappe became the first player since 1966
to score a hat trick in a World Cup final. Despite this, Argentina prevailed in the penalty shootout, and he lost. In what he named his “last match in this opposition,” Messi at last acquired his hands on the sought after World Cup prize. Argentina vs France
After sharing a World Cup final for the ages with France, Argentina won on penalties, proving Lionel Messi’s claim to being the greatest footballer in history. Argentina led 2-0 at halftime and 3-2 in extra time thanks to goals from Messi and the outstanding Angel Di Maria.
In a pulsating 3-3 draw with Brazil’s Neymar, Paris Saint-Germain teammate Kylian Mbappe became the second player in World Cup final history to score a hat trick twice from the spot. Aurelien Tchoumeni missed a penalty kick at the start of the shootout,
which was saved by Emiliano Martinez. While Messi, Paulo Dybala, and Leandro Paredes all converted, Gonzalo Montiel had to send Hugo Lloris in the opposite direction to win his third World Cup. Argentina vs France

France wanted to win the championship for the first time since Brazil in 1962, but Argentina outplayed them in the first half, and Messi scored from the spot after Ousmane Dembele brought down Di Maria in the 23rd minute. Argentina vs France
Prior to scoring one of the incomparable World Cup last objectives, Di Maria was an unexpected consideration on the left wing and tortured Les Bleus much of the time. Messi, Julian Alvarez, and Alexis Mac Allister launched a vicious counterattack, but the Juventus winger successfully stopped it.

Didier Deschamps, France coach, made an extreme double substitution in the 41st minute, taking out Olivier Giroud and Dembele. Randal Kolo Muani and Marcus Thuram, an attacking duo, came on and got involved as Mbappe turned the game around in 97 seconds.
Kolo Muani’s speed surprised Nicolas Otamendi, and he went tumbling. Mbappe scored Monaco’s equalizer with a penalty kick that deflected off of Emiliano Martinez’s dive and a deft exchange with Thuram. Argentina vs France
After Lautaro Martinez’s entrance, Argentina’s heads took a while to clear, but Messi scrambled home a goal after Hugo Lloris saved the Inter Milan striker’s effort in the 108th minute. After Mbappe hit Montiel in the arm with his shot, he got his second penalty.
Martinez saved Kolo Muani’s shot in the shootout, the only other player who would surpass him, and made a costly error that time. Despite this, and in part because of teammates like Emiliano Martinez, who refused to compromise when it mattered most.
