Argentina defeated France 4-2 in the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals giving Lionel Messi (perhaps the greatest player in the history of soccer) his first World Cup trophy.

From the New York Times:

Argentina has claimed its third World Cup title with its victory in the penalty shootout against France, capping an extraordinary final that saw it take a two-goal lead, give it away in a blur, seize it back in extra time and then surrender it again.

It was never going to be easy for Messi but here he is: A World Cup champion at 35, a man with no boxes left to tick in his career, a player who can rightly claim his place in the argument as the best of all time.
