In the final match against France, Messi scored two goals before scoring one in the penalty shoot-out as Argentina defeated Kylian Mbappe’s team France. After the game, Messi, his teammates and his millions of fans celebrated the World Cup victory with much jest.

Messi had recently been hounded by his supporters in his hometown Rosario. A video had emerged in social media in which his car was seen mobbed by the fans.

This came after Argentina players were forced to abandon an open bus victory parade in Buenos Aires due to the massive crowds following their World Cup win.

Messi is expected to return to work next week, playing for Paris Saint-Germain. The development was confirmed by PSG head coach Christophe Galtier.

On the other hand, PSG resumed their Ligue 1 campaign with a 2-1 win over Strasbourg. Kylian Mbappe scored an injury-time penalty to seal a 2-1 win for the side on Wednesday.
