Lionel Messi led Argentina from the front in a tense final against defending champions France to help his country win the FIFA World Cup title for the third time. Messi scored twice in the final and even converted his penalty into a shootout to help his side get the better of the Blues, who refused to retire despite losing 0-2 in the first half. Kylian Mbappe became the second player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final and also scored in the penalty shootout, but failed to prevent Messi from achieving immortality by winning his first Cup of the world.
After the victory, Messi was delighted and celebrated with his teammates. A video that has gone viral shows Messi dancing with the World Cup trophy on a table inside the dressing room. ESPNFC, who posted the video on Twitter, credited Messi’s teammate Nicolas Otamendi for the video.

Messi finished the tournament with 7 goals, one behind Mbappe who netted 8 for France. He broke the record for most World Cup appearances with his 26th on Sunday night and now has 13 goals in World Cup history.
He also received the Golden Ball, awarded to the “Player of the Tournament” and thus became the first player to obtain it, having also won the award in 2014 when Argentina lost to Germany in the final.
