EA Sports managed to guess the World Cup winner four times in a row.
The Argentina national football team has just made a proud achievement at the 2022 World Cup. Messi and friends managed to become champions after defeating last year’s defending champions, France.
The match really gave an interesting spectacle, it’s no wonder that the two teams made it to the final round.
Argentina led 2-0 in the first half, then Mbappe’s two goals replied. The 2-2 score drew the duel into extra innings. There, Messi scored the third goal for the La Albiceleste squad, before being equalized again by Mbappe in the final minutes.
In the end, the match had to be resolved via a penalty shootout. Two French kickers failed to do their job so that Argentina has the right to bring home its third World Cup title.
