FIFA: Argentina beats France on penalty

The 2022 FIFA World Cup ends on Sunday with Argentina defeating France in penalty kicks, which is one of the most dramatic matches in the history of the sport.

After a 3-3 tie through extra time, Argentina won 4-2 in penalty kicks, Lionel Messi scored twice in the match, including a goal in the 108th minute that appeared to win it for Argentina.

Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappé scored in a penalty kick in the 118th minute to complete the hat trick, after he scored two goals earlier in two minutes.

In penalty kicks, Argentinian goalie, Emiliano Martinez made a stop in the second round and Aurélien Tchouaméni’s penalty kick went wide in the third round, proving to be the difference in the match.

Messi won his first World Cup and will likely go out a champion as he’s indicated this will be his final World Cup.
