It was a World Cup Final for the history books. Fans everywhere gathered to witness the final match between Argentina and France. Even these lines men took a break inside a cane field from their hectic work day to catch the game. Argentina held a comfortable two to nothing lead for the first eighty minutes of the match, thanks to a Messi penalty and a team goal finish by Angel Di Maria. But within two minutes, France’s young superstar Kylian Mbappe evened the game with two goals and sent it into extra time.  During extra time, Messi once again showed up to put Argentina in the lead. But a penalty from Mbappe would earn him a hat trick and send the game into penalty shootout.  Argentina would ultimately go on to win the 2022 World Cup trophy, marking the nation’s third world cup victory. And, this was much to the delight of Argentina fans across Belize, where in some parts of the country street parades were held in celebration of the win. Even Prime Minister John Briceno was captured celebrating Argentina’s success.  Meanwhile, France fans were left to wallow in bitter defeat.
