Argentina defeats France in a shootout, 4-2, by a score of 4-2
Lionel Messi has excelled in almost every aspect of professional soccer over the course of more than 15 years. He at least once prevailed in each significant club tournament offered to him. Additionally, he had won the Ballon d’Or a record seven times, the top individual honour in sports. Even without winning a World Cup, Messi had a strong case for being the best player to ever play the game.
Messi now has the World Cup as well.
To get there, all it took was one of his toughest games ever. Messi’s Argentina gave away a 2-0 lead in the final 10 minutes of a night of tremendous drama that ranged from exhilaration to frustration and back again.
