Lionel Messi's dream of winning the FIFA World Cup finally materialised on Sunday night at the Lusail Stadium with Argentina surviving a few anxious moments to register a fighting 4-2 penalty shoot win over defending champions France.

At the end of 90 minutes, both teams were locked on 2-2 and scored a goal apiece in the 30 minutes of extra time before the match went to a penalty shootout.

In the tie-breaker, Kylan Mbappe opened the scoring for France but the subsequent kicks found the French players failing to beat Martinez in the Argentinian goal, one being saved by the keeper and one off the mark. Although Kolo Mani scored for France it was not enough as their rivals were successful in all four kicks.

For Argentina, Messi scored first followed by his three teammates to help Messi add the one trophy missing from his cabinet.
