ARGENTINA CAMPEONA DEL MUNDO!
Argentina won their third World Cup in 2022, making them the fourth most successful team in the history of the famous competition. The streets of Buenos Aires and cities, towns and villages across the country erupted with celebrations as Gonzalo Montiel rolled in the winning penalty past Hugo Lloris. The final, now referred to as one of the finest in living memory, finished 3-3 after extra time, with France making a stunning comeback through Kylian Mbappe before losing out to Argentina on penalties.
The 2022 World Cup was seen as a last chance for Lionel Messi to lift the coveted trophy as he turned 35 in the Summer before the tournament. Leo didn't disappoint as he scored 7 in 7 with 3 assists to his name too, and he will go down in history as (probably) the most successful player of all time.
