Argentina does not cry for Leo Messi as






He celebrates for Messi after so much discussion in a country where everything is discussed, after a desired and suffered title, because the quality, be it Messi or

Kylian Mbappé

, is an instant, an instant of torture or joy.

The World Cup is, today, the Argentine nirvana after so much inflation, so much corralito, so much outdated Peronism and so much shit.

This title gathers his people around the star, in Lusail as in Buenos Aires, Córdoba or Mendoza, in the way that

Víctor Hugo Morales

said when he sang


's goal against the English: "

Like a clenched fist

". Messi is the Maradona who closes in Qatar the story of a stadium god, clenches that fist and opens the aching heart of Argentina in a canal.

The star also overcomes the tragic fate that appears in the Argentine idiosyncrasy as well as football.

Tango sings it, it is in the life of Evita,


or Maradona.

Twice he saw France come back, two goals in regulation time, one more in extra time, all from an Mbappé who rebelled against reality as a worthy heir to his teammate at



Messi says goodbye to this stage already conquered by the French, in Russia.

He awaits the reconquest.

It is impossible for Europeans to understand this way of feeling the selection, the light blue and white, with pilgrimages without entry wherever they are.

The blood has reasons that make the veins fat, wrote the singer-songwriter

Atahualpa Yupanqui


The inflamed veins of its players and its people, who began to win the final in hymns, and that is a lot when the rival is the Marseillaise.

The outcome of a colossal final led them to the emotional gorge, to the wall of penalties, where their captain did not fail, nor did Mbappé, but the French did against

Dibu Martínez

, a challenging goalkeeper.

Defeat would have made Messi feel incomplete.

He is now at peace, with his family but also with himself and with history.

He can leave the national team in peace, although he will never do it from memory, after a career in which he has won everything possible.

From now on, he will only have one problem: live like a god.

For many it was torture.

It's his next game.



, he still has a few left on the field, although as a club footballer, from a '



PSG will


able to give him another

Champions League

, perhaps, but it will never be the Barça in which he grew up and found the perfect ecosystem.

This solidary Argentina has returned the sensations of victory, lost sensations.

Instead of with the game, with solidarity, resistance and decision until the supreme luck, without a single mistake in the shootout, the second surpassed in the World Cup after the one against the Netherlands.


Argentina was initially better than France at everything, fueled by their intensity.

Without the energy of other times, Messi illuminated each offensive maneuver of a supportive and intense team, which took a superior rival individually off the field.

The world champion in Russia played for more than an hour with the dilettante rhythm of pride, surpassed in individual duels and without finding Mbappé until the end, but what a final.

The defeat of France is not their defeat, with three goals in a world final and one more success in the shootout, where the failure of


, the second pitcher, was a slab.

Lionel Scaloni

is another of the winners, the calm man in a country in tachycardia.

A coach who has found his balance on a roller coaster.

In the final, he made a risky decision, including

Di María

among the starters.

He had only been against Arabia, the day of defeat.

At Lusail, he was the decisive footballer.

A break on


, on the left, led to the penalty for the Catalan.

He will touch it more or less in the area, it was stupid.

Messi then stood at the point that tormented him so much in the past.

He hyperventilated.

He scored


It was his fourth maximum penalty in the World Cup.

Mr. Penalti

is also the top scorer, with seven goals.

Di María completed his game with the second goal, at the end of a masterful counter strike from Argentina launched by Messi with a magical touch.

Julián Álvarez

progressed and found the scorer on the other side of the coast.

A contemporary of Messi, Di María, 34, crossed himself several times before leaving the field, substituted.

There was more than one god to thank.

It would not be the last sentence.


France collapsed before it appeared.

To Mbappé, always defended with help, a ball came to him, a feint, nothing.

Didier Deschamps

shook the bench in search of desperate solutions.

He retired Dembélé and Giroud, shortly before the break, to bet on the speed of



Kolo Muani


Later he would leave the


field .

The maneuver gave its effects.

Molo Muani was the object of a penalty by Otamendi and Coman stole Messi and threw Mbappé into the area to, in one minute, equalize the game.

Argentina felt dizzy, but

Dibu Martínez

stopped Kolo Muani's title goal.

Extra time was a tough test for Argentina, which needed minutes to recover.

He did it and in a counter,

Julián Álvarez

threw to the body of



Messi scored with suspense.

Fate, however, wanted more from the star, more to grant it eternity.


took some hands that left Mbappé again before the penalty spot and that led to more penalties.

None failed, neither Messi nor Mbappé.

The others did it, those who least felt this World Cup as if their lives were gone.

They are Argentines, they are champions.
