Who won the world cup in Qatar 2022, At the Lusail stadium, Lionel Messi lifted the World Cup, the trophy that was missing from his impressive career. He scored two goals, the defining penalty, and celebrated with his fans.
“Come on Argentina, the shell of your mother, we are world champions.” The protocol microphone at the Lusail stadium took it Lionel Messi and made the more than 40 thousand fans of the albiceleste explode, even more with joy, who jumped, cried, delirious and even more at the moment in which Gonzalo ‘Cachetes’ Montiel converted the final penalty, the one that gave him the third Cup del Mundo to the team of friends made up by coach Lionel Scaloni.

The great game that came out and that the Argentines and French gave away was also relevant, with goals, exceptional plays, a demanding physical waste and from start to finish, and celebrations on one side and the other. Lionel Messi and Ángel di María, for the South Americans, and the triplet of Kylian Mbappé, for the Europeans, who brought out his repertoire and showed what quality and category is enough to be the call to reign in orbital football, at least, in the next decade.
It was also sentimental and emotional to the maximum before, during, and after the fans of Argentina that filled the streets, the Metro stations, and every corner of the Qatari capital. Even the Msheireb station, the one that connects, had to be closed by the authorities because it was overflowing with people.
The Argentines with their chants, harangues, and bustle over and over again, and the choirs that called for “raise the third” was infecting Indians, Arabs, Lebanese, Emirati, and other neighbors who joined the carnival of the South Americans in the World Cup in Qatar 2022.

At 1:46 in the afternoon they gave the Cup to ’10’, who brought a smile to his face, fireworks went up in the sky, and immediately ‘la Pulga’ walked to look for his friends, the same ones who set up a Selection a family and they remained forever and ever in history.
