⚽️Messi took control of the game early on and kept growing as the game progressed, helping his side go 2-0 up and later, 3-2 up. Mbappe matched Messi with his brilliance as he scored a hattrick, become only the 5th player to do so in a FIFA World Cup final, though it wasn’t enough on the day.

🙌 Emi Martinez was up for the challenge too, as he not only made some remarkable saves in regulation time but was splendid in the shoot-out as well, yet again, claiming the Golden Glove.
👟Mbappe showcased he is ready to lead the next era of football and has achieved a lot already at just 23 and ended the World Cup with something to cheer for- Golden Boot
👌Enzo Fernandes was another key member of the Argentine midfield and packed a punch, which saw him emerge as the Young Player of the tournament.
