“Glorious. Truly glorious,” Ozil, Andy Murray, and other celebrities react to Lionel Messi’s 2022 FIFA World Cup win with Argentina
The man, the myth, the legend Lionel Messi has done it. The superhero from Rosario has led Argentina to a historic 2022 FIFA World Cup win. The little magician took his team on his shoulder, leading them by example. He started the scoring by converting a first-half penalty. His compatriot Angel Di Maria scored the second. The Argentines started the second half with a 2-0 scoreline and decided to sit back. It turned out to be a costly mistake.
In the game’s latter half, PSG sensation Kylian Mbappe‑inspired France’s comeback. The defending champions punched back from the brink not once but twice. But the efforts weren’t enough. When Gonzalo Montiel had dispatched the winning penalty, Lionel Messi sank to his knees in the center circle, engulfed by his teammates.
It will be an all-time classic or the greatest, perhaps the finest, World Cup final. One of the greatest games in football history. In so many ways, it was Lionel Messi’s game, destined to be his game. After Kylian Mbappe equalized yet again and made it 3-3, the match went into the hands of a penalty and the hands of the great Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
