FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 - Argentina beats France to win World Cup final

Posted on 19 December 2022 by "T".

The final of the 2022 World Cup has concluded, with Argentina defeating France on penalties at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar on Sunday, December 18.

Argentina has beaten France, the returning champion, in a dramatic match that gives the South American country its third World Cup victory since 1986.

Argentina won the match 4-2 on penalty kicks following a 3-3 draw after extra time for their third FIFA World Cup title. They were in the lead 2-0 at half-time, but a hat-trick by Kylian Mbappé for France and another goal for Argentina tied the match in extra time.

Let's take a quick look at what happened on the final:

Argentina vs France
Outcome: Argentina 3 (4) - France 3 (2)

The 2022 World Cup final is indeed a crowning moment for soccer icon Lionel Messi, as Argentina defeated the defending champion France on penalty kicks.

Considered to be one of the most intense major sporting events in history saw the two teams tied 3-3 after extra time, with the French eventually missing twice in the shootout before Gonzalo Montiel converted to seal an arduous yet emotional victory.

Most of the time in the match, Argentina was leading 2-0 with only 10 minutes remaining, but France suddenly sprang to life with star forward Kylian Mbappé scoring twice in as many minutes. Both sides exchanged missed chances and then late goals again in the 30 minutes of extra time before the inevitable pressure of penalty kicks.


  • Argentina led 2-0 in the first half thanks to goals from Angel Di Maria and Lionel Messi.
  • France scored twice in 90 seconds late in the game to stun Argentina and tie the final.
  • Argentina wins on penalty kicks after an intense final ended 3-3 in extra time.


The game wrapped up a month of sporting drama in Qatar. The mega soccer tournament featured fairytale runs and shocking upsets, but the final saw two giants of the soccer world clash for the coveted title - headlined by a pair of dazzling and impressive stars.

Mbappé performed brilliantly, with the swift and skillful forward scoring a hat-trick as France came so close to being the first team to win back-to-back titles since Brazil in 1962.

Unfortunately for Mbappé, ultimately it was Lionel Messi who took the glory, finally claiming the trophy that proves his status as perhaps soccer's greatest player ever, as the 35-year-old bows out on the global stage by securing a third title for his beloved nation.

Collection Complete: Messi now has his World Cup trophy

Teammates flocked to Lionel Messi moments after the winning kick, knowing he can no longer be bothered by that one trophy eluding his mantel.

Even though he's a seven-time Ballon d'Or (Golden Ball) winner plus a member of 10 La Liga championship teams and four UEFA Champions League winning sides, fans back home in Argentina had for so long held that missing World Cup trophy against him.

Argentina has won last year's Copa America, but fans were still not satisfied until Sunday when Messi and his side won the ultimate prize at the World Cup. And to think that the 35-year-old said before that this will be his last appearance in this tournament!

Soccer legend Lionel Messi was awarded the Golden Ball (and the Silver Boot), recognizing him as the tournament's most outstanding player.
Moments after being given that honor, Messi kissed the World Cup trophy.

Meanwhile, France's young upstart 23-year-old Kylian Mbappé, who scored three goals in addition to a penalty kick, was awarded the Golden Boot.

Prize Money
The winner of the final gets to take home the gold medal and the top prize worth $42 million, an increase of $4 million compared to four years ago in Russia. France as the runner-up will walk away with the silver medal along with $30 million.

By far the best world cup played by the Argentine team!!!, Great Messi!!!
 geseco1227/12/2022 18:23:32 GMT
it was a great world cup because argentina fought until the end of the championship, they started losing their match, we thought they were not going to pass the group stage, but they gave us a surprise, the rebelliousness of the team worked and they made it to the end.
 dule-vu27/12/2022 18:40:26 GMT
everything is over and we can comment clubs!
 geseco1229/12/2022 00:11:08 GMT
the world cup is over, it has left me with a lot of emotions, I hope this can pass and I can enjoy the club matches that have already started with everything, today manchester city played for the premiership.
 CALICUL29/12/2022 00:16:00 GMT
I had no emotions in any match, but i was a little worried in the final, because i wanted Argentina to win. The French national team is completely different and i didn't want them to win at all.
 Serg_7303/01/2023 07:52:55 GMT

Fully deserved title for Argentina, and great save from Emiliano Martinez Worship Worship Worship
 CALICUL03/01/2023 11:27:04 GMT
but a gesture that should not have been made... at the awards ceremony of the World Cup trophy
 1m1m1m1m103/01/2023 15:09:35 GMT
It was a stupid gesture on his part, but that doesn't diminish his contribution to the title
 CALICUL03/01/2023 15:20:17 GMT
you are right and he will probably be bought by a bigger team
 1m1m1m1m103/01/2023 15:28:59 GMT
there is talk of interest from manchester united and bayern munich, but we will see. de Gea and Neuer are getting old and their clubs are looking for replacements
 CALICUL03/01/2023 15:48:21 GMT
we will see Smile
 geseco1205/01/2023 14:57:44 GMT
the champion leo messi has arrived in paris and in training they have given him a great greeting and congratulated him, neymar has congratulated him, they all show how great professionals they are despite the fact that the rival was france.
 dule-vu05/01/2023 15:34:17 GMT
You still write about it?
 eloy210/01/2023 22:29:00 GMT
The final of the 2022 World Cup has concluded, with Argentina defeating France on penalties, the Argentines are very happy for the World Cup that their team gave them Considered one of the most intense sporting events in history, the two teams tied 3- 3
 CALICUL10/01/2023 23:44:31 GMT
it was a match with many goals, but not so spectacular. France could have won but missed at the end of overtime. Argentina is also a very good team and i am glad that they won. This team deserves this trophy.
 Gedemonas16/01/2023 19:34:08 GMT
Very late conclusion, but yes congratulations Argentina, for winning the most important competition in the world - football world cup. Personally I'am not very big Argentina fan, but I'am very happy that Messi, in the last two years, won the most important titles with his national team, world cup and WC. Thumbs Up
 dule-vu16/01/2023 19:41:49 GMT
Everything is over month ago!
