Argentine star Lionel Messi topped the scene during the award ceremony and handing over of the Qatar World Cup 2022, yesterday, at Lusail Stadium in Doha.
Messi received the championship trophy from the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who also gave him a black cloak (bisht), which he wore while standing on the podium.
Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was the first to climb to the podium to receive the gold medals, while Messi was the last to climb to the podium.
The Argentine players received the gold medals and the championship cup from Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Gianni Infantino, President of the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA).
The Argentine national team won the World Cup title for the third time in history and the first in 36 years, after defeating its French counterpart 4-2 on penalty kicks, yesterday, in the final match of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, after the end of the original and extra time in a 3-3 draw.
The ceremony began with the players of the French national team ascending to the podium to receive the silver medals for the runner-up of the tournament.
And Messi had already won the award for best player in 2014, but the joy was not complete, because he lost the final against Germany 0-1 after extension, but this time the coronation was complete, becoming the first player in history to be crowned with the Golden Ball for the World Cup twice.
