The stage was set for two of football’s greatest rivals to meet for the first time in a FIFA World Cup™ since 1990 and the first time ever in the Final.
Unsurprisingly it was another tense game that was decided by a single goal, but it was the Albiceleste that sent their nation into euphoria as Lionel Messi scored his eighth goal of the tournament to give his country their first FIFA World Cup™ title since 1986, their third overall, and filled in the last remaining spot in his trophy cabinet.
There was a four-way tie for the Golden Glove between Rui Patrício of Portugal, Alisson of Brazil, Dominik Livaković of Croatia, and Emiliano Martínez of Argentina, but it was Martínez who picked up the award by virtue of progressing the furthest in the tournament.
