Qatar 2022 Michael Owen singles out two players after Argentina’s 4-2 win over France. Following both sides’ 2022 FIFA World Cup semifinal match on Sunday, former Liverpool striker Michael Owen singled out Argentina captain Lionel Messi and France forward Kylian Mbappe for special acclaim.
At Lusail Stadium, Argentina overcame France 4-2 in a penalty shootout to claim the World Cup.
After 120 minutes, Lionel Scalon’s team and the Les Blues had a 3-3 tie.
During the World Cup final match, Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick for France, Messi netted a brace, and Angel di Maria scored a goal.
Owen also congratulated Argentina on winning the World Cup in a post via his Twitter account following the victory, calling the championship game fantastic.
“Congratulations Argentina,” the former England international tweeted. Amazing game. The finest final, without a doubt? Messi caps off an incredible career, but think of Mbappe, who scored three goals in the World Cup final but left empty-handed.
