DOHA : “After four weeks, 64 games and 172 goals, the Qatar 2022 World Cup came to a thrilling conclusion at the Sunday’s final.on December 18”
A wonderful FIFA tournament organized and conducted by the State of Qatar unprecedentedly, in the 92 years history of FIFA World Cup, came to an end with the final match played between France and Argentina on Sunday.
It has been a thrilling game of final between the defending champions France and Argentina with superstar Messi. Until 79th minute the game was in the hands of Argentina with 2-0 and dominated by them leaving no opportunity to shoot a single goal by France. Soon after the penalty France got, at the 79th minute, the dominance of Argentina gradually decreased and a very tough competition began, with the courage and momentum the penalty gave France. Unexpectedly, Mbappe showed his ability by shooting the second goal also within the next few minutes of the second half and ended it, requiring the additional two 15 minutes play.
At the end, the game was played until the penalty shoot-out, to decide the champions of FIFA-2022. A wonderful match to be watched indeed, for football fans to end the year 2022. It has been a great ending for Lionel Messi. Once again Argentina proved after 36 years, that they are still the lions of football, by repeating the 1986 World Cup winning, brought by the legend Diego Maradona.
You cannot undermine Kylian Mbappe who contributed greatly to push the side up when they almost lost not only the game but also the confidence, in the first 78 minutes of the game. He made a quick comeback immediately shooting the second goal following the penalty. He was awarded FIFA Golden Boot trophy, for achieving most number of goals in the tournament. However, it is the tournament for Messi to successfully complete his career, by winning the championship. Mbappe, you are young man and you got minimum three World Cup tournaments to blossom. Be not worried.
Winning the Football games depends on many factors. You should have speed, skills, teamwork, techniques, hardwork, calculating the opponents minuses, weak & strength accurately and ultimately the luck which comes to you in an unexpected manner, to win the game. I believe, all worked for Argentina to clinch the trophy. Congratulations to Argentina and Lionel Messi
