This Sunday the Argentinian pizzeria

París Boca

, in the center of the capital, has been a real roller coaster of emotions.

An afternoon like this has not been lived since

Natalia

, who is Argentine, and her husband,

Anne Louis

, French, opened the premises.

In this bar the Argentine anthem was sung this afternoon but also

the Marseillaise

.

Mar, Ariel and Denis

, Spanish, Argentine and Turkish, are with the Albicelestes.

There are Chileans and Italians.

Also French.

The hobbies are shared.

After Argentina

's second goal , the

French

fans

came out to take the air.

The one that the fans of both teams have missed in more than

120 minutes

in a final described as "

legendary" and "anthological

" by the French themselves.

In the streets and bars of Paris an endless afternoon of heart attack has been lived, with a match "up to the mark".

"

I am proud

, very proud of the team and of this final that has been played. It has been historic," said a Frenchwoman of Congolese origin after the final whistle.

"It's just that today's game

was the worst possible combination

," Natalia joked.

He set up this pizzeria with Anne Louis, although she anticipated the result and gave him an albiceleste shirt, which he wore while he calmly served beers and pizzas to the fans.

"In any case, it was a great match, and a win for both of us," he says.

Right next door, in a place called

Rox

, this one run by Moroccans, the final whistle ended with disappointment, but also with a loud applause for the two fans.

"

It's a shame because we deserved to win

, but it was a great final," explains Fabien, who, like his girlfriend, is hoarse from shouting so much.

In this place they started the second part (still against France) applauding the saves of

Lloris , the

bleue

goalkeeper

, and they began the extra time (already with the tie) singing

the Marseillaise

and shouting "

Kylian, Kylian

", in reference to Mbappe.

"They looked like winners"

In Paris this afternoon no one thought that the party on the

Champs Elysees

was going to be replaced by that of the albiceleste team.

Part of his fans go to the

Pont Neuf

, where he plans to meet for the celebration.

They explain that there is one of the best-known restaurants in Paris: Volver.

Through the streets, just a few days ago full of flags and fireworks, this afternoon there is silence.

Disappointment seeps into a France that until the last penalty was seen as champion.

This morning the sign at the Argentine

metro stop had been changed

to another that read "

France

".

"It's a detail that says a lot.

They looked like winners

," says Mar, a fan of Leo Messi's team.

Luis, another Franco-Argentine who lived in Paris until he was 12 before moving to Buenos Aires, did not have much faith that his team would win, although now he is going to celebrate it.

"The truth is that he saw us with the three stars. Yes, they were more confident for having won the last World Cup," he says.

"We have been scared"

The country was totally overturned today with the World Cup final, the fourth they have played in the last

24 years.

The shops had closed at noon.

At one in the afternoon, three hours before the meeting, there were already queues in the bars, cafeterias and nightclubs, which these days, today specifically, are doing an unusual business.

The authorities had prepared a strong security device throughout the country to avoid incidents, especially on the Champs-Elysees, where thousands of fans were expected to celebrate the victory.

After the defeat, incidents are not ruled out either.

In the middle of the game, several police officers had to escort the entrance of París Boca after some people violently pounded on the door at halftime.

"

We've been scared

. They came back later, when France scored both goals. We've called the police and we've already seen the rest of the game with them at the door," explains Agustina, who is preparing to celebrate.

"Maybe we'll go to the Champs Elysées."
