An exciting day of cricket ended with a cracking FIFA Football World Cup 2022 Final played between defending champions France and Argentina.
The match was a special one for the Argentina’s superstar and captain Lionel Messi, who was playing his last ever FIFA World Cup tournament and him winning the tournament is a really special moment for hundreds of millions of his fans.
Meanwhile the whole cricket fraternity was busy watching the FIFA World Cup final and some big star cricketers today took to their official social media handle to wish Lionel Messi for his brilliant performance and compared him winning the World Cup with Sachin Tendulkar winning the World Cup in 2011.
Many congratulations to Argentina on doing this for Messi! Wonderful comeback from the way they started the campaign.— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) December 18, 2022
Special mention to Martinez for the spectacular save towards the end of extra time. That was a clear indication to me that Argentina would clinch this. pic.twitter.com/KoXOTl1fSE

One of the greatest World Cup games of all time. Mbappe was outstanding for France but it was meant to be Lionel Messi’s crowning moment. Congratulations Argentina on becoming the #FIFAWorldCup champions.— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) December 18, 2022Advertisement

What an amazing World Cup Final. Feel for Mbappe – scoring a hat-trick in a World Cup Final and ending up on the losing side. Congratulations to Lionel Messi and Argentina on an incredible win, first in 36 years , a fitting tribute to the great Maradonna. #FIFAWorldCup pic.twitter.com/oJZtnNhNga— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) December 18, 2022
