    FIFA fixing it to be 2-2 so that, er, well, so that Messi gets to score the winner.

    Yeh that was the point i was making. I think it's easier to stand out against functional players in a team, to be the best of those Brazil players really is something imo.

    Yes I wondered about that at the time, it was deliberate, but I guess it could hardly give a free kick 1 yard from goal

    Well, after coming back twice, you bottle it on the penalties. At least FIFA have their hero lifting the trophy.

    Good penalties by Argentina.

    Too knackered to celebrate!

    Any indirect freekick within the 6yd box is put back onto the 6yd line nearest to where to happened.

    Fair enough Argentina won. They were never behind in the match. Big effort from France trying to go back to back. Its just hard to do. Fair play to them, they just got going too late today. One of the great finals.

    I spent one day in Buenos Aires about 25 years ago and everybody was very nice to me. But I hate their football culture (and Uruguay's).

    It's impossible to compare players of different era's, but what I would say is Pele was two footed and could head a ball, Messi can only stand on his right foot and I've never seen him head a ball

    A truly incredible game of football. Worthy winners and a final rubber stamp for Messi, the best ever. Mbappe will break all kinds of records in the future. Could play at 3 more world cups.

    Shoutout to those in this thread who suggested a conspiracy by FIFA to allow Messi to win it only for a referee to break their hearts and give the opposition two penalties that directly stopped them from winning without the lottery of penalties. You truly make life worth living.

    Greatest final ever. Should have won that with ease really but what drama.

    Gracias Leo and Fideo and La Scaloneta.

    That is twaddle. Messi uses his right foot pretty well and when needed has used his head. Manchester United fans might remember.

    Well done Enzo too. Argentina has some really excellent young midfielders coming through in the u20s as well. Buonannotte, Perrone, Prestianini, Varela to name just four.

    It's the opposite. You have to do more to win with more functional players like a Giusti than when surrounded by other stars. Garrincha and Rivelino are not exactly functional.

    One thing I'd like to add, Di Maria once again proved just how great player he is. I thought he was the best player on the pitch before he was subbed off and Argentina struggled in part because they missed him imo. Such an underrated player considering how important he was in many club/country title runs.

    Mbappe did not deserve to lose today.

    Loris should have saved one of those first 3 Argie Pens

    Corking final.

    For 77 minutes it looked like it was going to be a simple victory but then it became a blockbuster. Great match in the end between 2 teams going for it.

    1970 was the greatest final ever. More skill, better sportsmanship. Not as close as this one eventually became, though.

    Wow what a final. Don’t really understand the hate from some towards Messi and the media attention he gets. I think he deserves the hype and wanted him, and Argentina, to win. Also, how rare is it that two players - Messi and Mbappe - are so hyped ahead of a final and BOTH of them live up to the hype on the day.
