The 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament has ended in Qatar with Argentina defeating its French opponent in a penalty shootout at the final match.

Lionel Messi carried his side to victory over France after the greatest final in the competition’s history ended in a 3-3 draw after extra time in Qatar on Sunday.

Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick for France – the first treble in a men’s final for 56 years – as the world’s top two players both shone in a wondrous duel in the Lusail Stadium near Doha.

Both men scored in the spot-kick shootout too but Argentina prevailed 4-2 to lift the World Cup for the third time, with Gonzalo Montiel scoring the clinching penalty to spark wonderful scenes of celebration in the stadium.
