Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the nation in congratulating Argentina on winning the World Cup and said that this game will be remembered with one of the most ‘thrilling’ football matches. “This will be remembered as one of the most thrilling Football matches! Congrats to Argentina on becoming #FIFAWorldCup Champions! They’ve played brilliantly through the tournament.

Argentina made a glorious win in the World Cup after 36 years. The intensely fought match gave the fans the most gripping experience. Lionel Messi scored two goals and then another in a shootout as Argentina beat France 4-2 on penalties after a 3-3 draw to claim a third World Cup title despite Kylian Mbappé scoring the first hat trick in a final in 56 years.
