Martinez, 120' of suffering then on penalties I was serene

 - "It was a game of great suffering, we knew it: we weren't able to control the game as we should. But to become world champion you have to suffer".

In tears, Emiliano Martinez celebrates the night that crowned Argentina as world champions and him the hero of the night, with a save from Coman's final penalty.

"When we went to the final penalties - said the Albiceleste goalkeeper - I told my team-mates to stay calm, because I would have taken a couple of them.."

It's over!

'Ganamos!'

'Gracias Pulga Messi!'

From the spectacular Iguazu Falls on the border with Brazil, to the Marambio scientific base in Antarctica, passing by the iconic obelisk on Avenida 9 de Julio in Buenos Aires, an irrepressible Argentine 'fiesta' broke out for the historic and well-deserved victory today of the 'selección' at the World Cup in Qatar on penalties against the French 'Bleus'.

The joy that, at the final whistle of the referee Kwiatkowsi, immediately poured into the streets of the whole country to the cries of 'Vamos Argentina and 'Dale campeòn!

', after France's temporary draw which put the final victory at stake.

Furthermore, a joy that repays an entire country which, like its captain Leo Messi, who will leave the 'selección' after Qatar, and which only needed this title, felt he was indebted to history.

Not only with the history of the World Cup - with the final lost at the Maracana in 2014 by a single goal in extra time - but also with that history with a capital 'S' which has long been subjecting Argentina to endless economic crises, despite potential resources.
