Victorious Argentina lifted the sacred FIFA World Cup trophy last night in front of a packed crowd of 88,966 at the resplendent Lusail Stadium, capping off an epic, unforgettable and unprecedented event. Target. Drama. We are changing traditional performances. This one has them all.
The final was between defending champions France and inspiring Argentina, with the South Americans backed by their vast ranks of passionate supporters, which also led to a clash between tournament stars Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi. Duel between.
In the end, as impressive as they are, the numbers aren’t all there is to it. Numbers, for example, always struggle to convey the drama of Kylian Mbappé’s drive into the box or the importance of Messi’s goal-breaking pass.
For those lucky enough to be in Lusail Stadium or to watch the 2022 World Cup final in Qatar on television, the memories will live on for a long time. Great news: 2023 is also coming with an exciting FIFA events calendar!
Now, FIFA president Gianni Infantino’s final words are: “Best final ever.”
