Above all Football World Cup has gone  to Argentina.  Lionel Messi won the World Cup for Argentina on Sunday as he scored twice against France in one of the all-time great finals before the South Americans held their nerve to win in a penalty shootout in Qatar.

With the blessing of thousands audience, Messi finally crowned his record-breaking career by winning football’s biggest prize with a performance that will go down in World Cup history, scoring a first-half penalty and netting again in extra time.

France had fought strongly with the Argentina back from 2-0 down as Kylian Mbappe scored twice to equalise and force extra time in a pulsating match.

Messi seemed to have decided the match in extra time with his second goal of the game before Mbappe completed only the second World Cup final hat-trick to bring the score to 3-3 and force penalties.

“All that I have dreamed of has been achieved. I have no words for it. I was calm during the penalty shoot-out, and everything went as we wanted.
