The game promised a lot and delivered even more, records broken and set as Lionel Messi made his 26th World Cup appearance.
The game was balanced on a knife edge but the early stages seemed to feature more Argentine intent as they raced to a 2 goal lead at half time.
What a game it turned out to be in the 2nd half with end to end stuff particularly in the latter stages.
The Argentines looked in control for most of the game and with 10 minutes to go were holding firmly till those crazy 97 secs when the match turned on its head with a Mbappe brace.
The game came alive as the french looked to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, this was such a spectacle for neutrals as fans of both teams held their breath.
Extra time came and ended as the French again pegged back the Argentines who scored a third through Lionel Messi.
Penalties it was and La Albiceleste came on top.
A super exciting finale it was and such a great ending to the one month football festival. For many football fans the GOAT debate has being settled finally with Messi leading his team lift the World Cup. What do you think?
As the tournament theme says “Better Together”, remember that those who manage chronic conditions never have to do it on their own.
