World Cup 2022 Live Streaming: The reaction is all down to Argentina and Lionel Messi

The Argentina team is back after winning the World Cup

Lionel Messi and his Argentina team mates have returned home after ending their 36-year wait to win the World Cup.

Messi scored twice against France, but his PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick in Sunday’s final in Qatar that ended 3-3 after extra time.

What was surely the greatest final in World Cup history was decided by a penalty shootout, with Gonzalo Montiel scoring the penalty before Messi lifted the trophy that had eluded him for so long.

Argentina are now back in their homeland, while France striker Karim Benzema – who missed the tournament through injury – has hinted that his time with the national team is over.

Lionel Messi has posted pictures of himself “waking up” with the World Cup, two days after he led Argentina to their first world title in 36 years with a penalty shootout victory over France.

The captain posted three photos of himself in bed with the iconic trophy on Tuesday, with the caption, “Buen dia (good morning)!” A smiley face emoji.

Messi lifted the trophy in Qatar on Sunday after failing to cover the distance in four previous World Cups.

The 35-year-old came close to winning the tournament in 2014, when Argentina lost the final 1-0 to Germany in extra time in Brazil. But Messi finally went one better last week, scoring twice in a 3-3 draw with France that was then decided on penalties.

Messi scored in the penalty shootout as Argentina won their first world title since 1986, when Diego Maradona led the nation to glory. The 2022 World Cup was the first edition of the tournament to be held since the death of the Argentine icon in 2020.

The black robe worn by Lionel Messi was given to the Argentina captain as a “mark of honour” as he lifted the World Cup in Qatar.

The bisht – a traditional, thin Arab gown – put on Messi, the Emir of Qatar, before joining jubilant colleagues as they celebrated their emphatic victory over France.

Some viewers and broadcasters, unfamiliar with the garment and its significance, were baffled, but an academic explained that this is Qatar’s way of honoring Messi.

Dr. Mustafa Baig, a lecturer in Islamic studies at the University of Exeter, told the Palestinian News Agency that the bisht is an official robe worn by members of the royal family, dignitaries and grooms on their wedding day, and graduates at their graduation ceremonies.

He said, “So only a select few people will wear a bisht.”

The impact of Angel Di Maria on Lionel Messi’s path right up to the moment he lifted the World Cup should not be forgotten. It’s an essential part of the story.

Messi’s 35-year journey began on the streets of Rosario and saw him ascend to a place where only football gods reside, on the wings of an angel.

Emiliano Martinez, world champion. That might have seemed far fetched four years ago when he sat in the stands as just another Argentine fan in Russia, watching France win 4-3 in their epic World Cup knockout match.

There Martinez told his brother, sitting next to him, that he would play in the next World Cup. It was ambitious, to say the least. Then aged 25, he was back-up at Getafe on his sixth loan from Arsenal; Another followed at Reading as his status rose, before an unlikely chance opened up at Arsenal when Bernd Leno suffered a bizarre injury.

By 2021, he is Argentina’s number one goalkeeper. He soon became a Copa América hero, his primary goal being to disavow Richarlison and others at the end of a tense final at the Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro, the place where Lionel Messi and his co-stars lost the World Cup final in 2014. Martinez was at the center of the match. their salvation.

He has now beaten France in the best World Cup final of all time – thus perhaps football’s greatest match. It’s a story, some ups.

It was the World Cup for Lionel. The World Cup winning captain who was awarded the Ballon d’Or and the man of the match in five out of seven matches, the player who scored in every knockout round, with two goals in the final, and the footballer who sealed it for many. The issue is greater than ever.

But also the other Lionel. The quiet Argentine footballer, Lionel Messi’s dream facilitator, World Cup-winning caretaker. Lionel Scaloni is the first World Cup winning coach managed by Alan Pardew. This may not have been the secret to his success, but after claiming his first World Cup for Argentina in 28 years, he has now claimed his first World Cup for 36 years. He stands alongside César Luis Menotti and Carlos Bilardo, although the humble figure argued: “I’m not at their level yet”.

Perhaps that is because it will take him time to get used to the idea of ​​Scaloni being a World Cup winner.

It was Lionel Messi’s day, it was Lionel Messi’s World Cup, but for more than a moment it seemed it was Kylian Mbappe. It is indisputable that Lusail Stadium hosted the greatest World Cup Final in history, and while the outcome was decided and determined by the biggest names, it was a match whose momentum and spirit shook and was influenced by so much more.

The illusion is to think there is order to chaos. In the beginning was Angel Di Maria and a masterstroke from Lionel Scaloni. Then it was Randall Kolo-Mwani and Marcus Thuram, who were thrown out of despair by Didier Deschamps. Argentina was inspired but France hit back. Then, as France dominated the World Cup and made history, Argentina found Emiliano Martinez and, out of nowhere, Gonzalo Montiel.

This is the World Cup for Argentina, but this was a final that belonged to those who wrote its drama.

Lionel Messi and his teammates in Argentina celebrated their 2022 World Cup victory by singing, “I don’t care what the journalists say,” in front of the media in Qatar.

Argentina won their third World Cup – and their first since 1986 – when they beat France on penalties in a thrilling final on Sunday.

After they collected the trophy, the team moved their celebrations from the dressing room to the mixed zone, an area of ​​the pitch where journalists are waiting to interview the players.

There the Argentina squad sang: “Support the national team, support them to death because I love Argentina, because it is an emotion that I carry in my heart. And I don’t care what those journalists say!”

Gianni Infantino said it was the best World Cup ever. It turns out that FIFA’s propaganda about a president was missing just one word. Best World Cup final ever? The case grew stronger as the game became more inconsequential, more credible-challenging, and more dramatic.

Twice Argentina thought they had won the 2022 World Cup. France’s reactions – two goals in two minutes of chaos, another in the 118th minute – were the biggest comeback in the history of a World Cup final.

Gonzalo Montiel came off the bench, first costing Argentina the trophy by conceding a penalty and then earning it by scoring in a penalty shootout. If the journey from villain to hero is swift, some of the evening’s extraordinary heroics turn out to be in vain.

Here is a look at Kylian Mbappe’s impressive performance in the World Cup Final:

The 13-year-old Lionel Messi gave a Q&A interview while he was still playing for the youth teams of Newell’s Old Boys. Talking to Capital newspaper, a local newspaper in Rosario, revealed that if he could have any meal, it would be chicken sauce. If he could date any supermodel, it would be Argentinian TV personality Nicole Newman. If he could watch any movie, it would be 1994’s adventure comedy The day the baby came out. And if he could do any work, it would be a PE teacher.

Earlier this week, a scanned copy of that interview went almost viral across social media. You’ve probably seen it, actually. The story was picked up by several news websites and content platforms. It was one of the most “voted” posts on the r/soccer subreddit, no less. It’s been shared and re-shared and shredded and collected and recycled and vomited until we’ve all had our fill, as has every new, previously undiscovered morsel about Macy’s.

This is the challenge Messi has posed to the profession since first proclaiming his genius: what is there to say that hasn’t already been said?
