Barack Obama congratulated Argentina for their spectacular victory over France in the FIFA World Cup 2022.
It took 36 years for Argentina to win the FIFA World Cup in 2022. A penalty shootout resulted in a 4-2 Argentina victory over defending champion France. Argentina won due to Messi’s penalty, Mac Allister’s excellent assist, and Di Maria’s final touch.
Barack Obama ” Congrats to Argentina and to the GOAT, Lionel Messi, for an amazing World Cup victory.”
The world’s reaction to ‘the best World Cup final ever’
Despite attempts to describe it, this World Cup final defies all comprehension and conventions.
The sound in the stadium when Lionel Messi lifted the World Cup trophy cannot be captured by anything. In extra time, how did Kylian Mbappé score a penalty with such calmness?
Ultimately, it was the greatest final in history, as so many people seemed to agree.
“ This World Cup Final was the best ever,” Usain Bolt tweeted along with pictures of himself in an Argentina jersey at Lusail Stadium.
“We’re breathless up here. It was just an unbelievable final. It was a pleasure to be here. I’ve never seen anything like it and I don’t think I’ll ever see anything like it again. It was staggering,”former England international Alan Shearer said
A Messi penalty and an Angel Di Marca goal in the first half appeared to settle the tie in normal time, but Mbappé scored two late goals – one from the penalty spot – to force extra time and bring France level.
Messi’s 108th-minute goal looked like a Hollywood ending, as both sides felt the effects of the scintillating finale.
It’s the #FIFAWorldCup, my god. There’s something gorgeous and evil about this game. As Argentina won 3-2 in extra time thanks to Messi’s goal, actor Ryan Reynolds tweeted: “I love it so much, let’s make it stop!”
Once again, Mbappé responded from the spot with an equalizer to force penalties.
“Ok if I have a heart attack it’s cause I’m watching this #FIFAWorldCup,” Serena Williams tweeted.
Kingsley Coman’s spot kick was saved by Emiliano Martnez, named the tournament’s best keeper, and Aurélien Tchouaméni’s header flew wide before Gonzalo Montiel secured Argentina’s third World Cup title and first since 1986.
