Munich/Lusail – It's done: At the age of 35, Lionel Messi is still the world champion at the 2022 World Cup!

Press comments on Argentina's World Cup victory: Lionel Messi outshines everything

After the third World Cup title (1978, 1986, 2022), the Argentinian press was in ecstasy and celebrated next to Messi goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa), who thwarted a big chance through Eintracht Frankfurt's Randal Kolo Muani shortly before the end of extra time - and in the shoot Out parried the attempt by Kingsley Coman (FC Bayern).

The press also pays homage to Messi in Spain, Switzerland and Austria.

The French newspapers, on the other hand, are struggling with the missed title defense.

And come to the realization that a Kylian Mbappé alone is not enough.

The 23-year-old striker from Paris Saint-Germain scored a hat-trick in the final (80', penalty kick/82'/118', penalty kick).
