Srinagar: Lionel Messi lead Argentina were crowned FIFA World Cup 2022 winners after defeating defending champions France im penalties.

Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick as the 2018 champions twice came from behind after Lionel Messi’s brace had twice put Argentina ahead.

A brilliant first half performance from the Argentina with two goals saw France on the ropes after Leo Messi fired the Albiceleste ahead from the spot after a Dembele trip on Di Maria in the 23rd minute and it was the Juve winger who doubled Argentina’s lead in the 36th minute slotting home from a wonderful counter involving Messi and MacAllister.

Just when it seemed that France were dead and buried, up stepped Mbappe with a brace in the space of two minutes. Extra time saw Messi stab home before Mbappe drew Les Bleus level again from the spot.
