Lionel Messi vs Kylian Mbappe in the FIFA World Cup Final: The perfect battle
If we look up close, the game wasn’t France vs. Argentina, but a number 10 versus 10. Of the PSG teammates who stood tied for the Golden Boot, one is approaching the near end of his extended reign over football versus one who already has one hand on his throne. A man who is desperately vying for World Cup glory versus a boy who could have ended up as a two-time world champion just by the age of 23. But destiny had other plans for the supreme young talent.
As Lionel Messi opened the scoring first with a spot kick and his deputy Angel Di Maria sealed the second goal, Kylian Mbappe rose to greatness when he doubled his scoresheet by equalizing the tally. Lionel Messi, with the form of his life, scored the potential winner, but the young French talisman scored yet again, dominating the 35-year-old with a hat-trick- A World Cup Final hat-trick. Arguably the Greatest FIFA World Cup Final ever.
