Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi – who is leading the Bharat Jodo Yatra – was seen relishing the final moments of FIFA with the party workers at a campsite in Rajasthan's Dausa. Visuals captured by ANI showed Gandhi seated on a chair as he enjoyed the match with the party workers accompanying him in the foot-march.

Scenes were no different in Delhi where fans were seen gathered in huge numbers to watch Argentina vs France at France Embassy. In Chennai, Argentina fans were spotted cheering for Lionel Messi - who surpassed Germany's Matthaus to become the most-capped player in the history of the FIFA World Cup.

Argentia took the the World Cup trophy home for the first time in 36 years, giving football fans one of the most gripping finals in tournament history. 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.
