After Argentina's victory over France in the World Cup final, Lionel Messi's supporters let their joy explode all over the world...including in Paris.
Europe 1 spent the evening with those who dreamed of seeing a third star on the Albiceleste jersey.
"It's an immense joy!"
Maxime, Franco-Argentinian, does not hide his joy after the victory of the Albiceleste in the final of the World Cup against the Blues.
After almost three hours of an endless and unbearable emotional lift, the liberating joy can finally burst in this room of a small bar of Argentinian supporters.
"This victory is huge because it's been a very long time since Argentina won! I'm very happy, we're going to keep celebrating," he said at the microphone of Europe 1. While like a mute Kylian Mbappé, the French were hiding in a silence filled with disappointment, here only one name is on everyone's lips (and on the shirts): Lionel Messi.

Messi wrote the football book
"Tonight he has just written football history. Messi has just won the World Cup. He has won everything in his life," recalls Ugur.
"Best player in the world, Messi wrote the book of football, it's not chance, it's not luck, it's work! He brought the cup home", adds a little further Giovanni.
And to shout: "Mbappé, it's not your time!"
A last World Cup that ends in third star for Lionel Messi, 35, was the dream of these supporters.
And now that the Rosario native has achieved the feat, a memorable party is on the agenda for all Argentinians across the world, even those who live in Paris.
And they didn't miss it.
