Who Won The World Cup 2022 Finals? Lionel Messi won his first FIFA World Cup on Sunday when Argentina defeated France in a penalty shootout in the tournament’s final game.
Argentina now has three World Cup trophies, trailing only Germany (4), Italy (4), and Brazil (5) in terms of total titles.
Argentina was shocked to lose its first World Cup match to Saudi Arabia. To round out the group stage, the team won 2-0 against Mexico and Poland.
Argentina had some difficulties in the knockout round. After defeating Australia 2-1, Las Albicelestes were nearly eliminated in a penalty shootout by the Netherlands.
Messi, 35, stated earlier this year that the Qatar 2022 World Cup would most likely be his last. That seems even more likely now that he’s won the trophy.
“This will be my last World Cup — for sure. The decision has been made,” Messi told Sebastián Vignolo on his show “In First Person.“
