After the FIFA World Cup final, Brazil’s soccer legend Pele shared a million-dollar post about Messi on social media. He also said he felt bad for his “dear friend” Mbappe.
Lionel Messi “finished” football on Sunday when he led Argentina to a long-awaited FIFA World Cup title with a dramatic win over France in the final at the Lusail Stadium. Messi and Di Maria scored in the first half, but Kylian Mbappe scored twice in 97 seconds late in the game to force extra time. The 23-year-old player tied the game for the second time to cancel out Messi’s second goal. In the end, Argentina beat France 4–2 on penalties to win the World Cup for the first time in 36 years. After the final, Brazil’s soccer legend Pele shared a post on social media that was worth a million dollars about Messi. He also said he felt bad for his “dear friend” Mbappe.
Pele told: Argentina that he was happy for them and said that Messi deserved to win the trophy.
He also praised Kylian Mbappe for scoring a hat-trick in the World Cup final, which hadn’t happened since 1966. He also had a lot of good things to say about Morocco and their fairytale run to the semifinals.
“Football keeps telling its story, as it always has, in an exciting way. Lionel Messi won his first World Cup, which was a good fit for his career. Mbappé, who is a good friend of mine, scored four goals in a final. What a gift it was to see the future of our sport in this show. And I couldn’t help but tell Morocco how great their campaign was. Africa’s success is great to see. Argentina, you did well! “I’m sure Diego is happy right now,” he wrote.
