I know. It came from nowhere. France were so flat. They just turned it around on those 2 mins.

Still plenty of match time (extra time) left.

Re: The Football Thread

So far the very best final for a world cup. It should have been an Argentinian win already if not for those stupid penalties given away.

+1

I was bracing for a boring match given how France were playing in the first half. But Mbappe really upset what should've been a smooth win for Argentina.

What a match! The best final I've seen live on TV!

Re: The Football Thread

Wow! wow! This is how a wonderful career should end for a legend like Messi. Some resemblence to a legend like Sachin Tendulkar to lift the world cup before his retirement. This is how legends should be respected. Simply amazing to watch Messi to lift the world cup.

Re: The Football Thread

Amazing worldcup this was.
What a Final!! What a final!!

Total rollercoaster ride. Messi's penalty kick was sublime. Happy that he didn't let emotion take over. Didn't let the pressure get to him.

But real talent was Mbappe. What a player. 4 goals (3 penalties) in WC final. Wow.

Re: The Football Thread

Argentina have done it after 36 years. France - you were great today but Argentina were just "The Best".

Re: The Football Thread

Real match started from 80th minute onwards and what a final. Argentina tried their best to win it for France. Superb save at 123' by ARG goalkeeper was the winning moment for them.

Re: The Football Thread

What a match, it is? All emotions in a single night - Boring, exciting, cursing, shouting and at one point even thinking it is match fixing and finally relieved to see Argentina winning. Very happy for Messi in the end.

Re: The Football Thread

What a match. What a fantastic match.

This literally felt like Indian cricket in the 90s, with Sachin almost single handedly taking us till the end; and then the whole team tumbling down immediately after he loses the wicket.

Re: The Football Thread

The trophy cabinet is now complete. As someone else said earlier, what an uncanny resemblance to Indian WC win in 2011.

Re: The Football Thread

France was not at its best today. Kind of flat play from them until the penalty happened and new energy emerged within! Mbappe the man!

Argentina deserved the win for the way they played today. The goal keeper deserves a special mention for the save done at the last minute of the game as well as a penalty!

Great match altogether. It’s rare to see 3-3 in finals

Re: The Football Thread

The last world Cup final I had watched was way back in the year 1986, on a CRT black and white TV. Later on I lost interest due to other commitments in life ,but since last week I again began to watch the world cup, coupled with Argentina reaching the final, my interest doubled. First half was dominated by Argentina, and after a gripping second half, it culminated into penalties - kudos to Argentina.

But not to forget Mbappe’s contribution in making this final interesting. He almost took France home single handed.
