All eyes were on the World Cup final on Sunday and the stars did not disappoint.

Decorated MMA champions like Francis Ngannou and Kamaru Usman were in absolute awe at what they witnessed as Argentina’s legendary Lionel Messi and French superstar Kylian Mbappe were at the peak of their powers for their countries in the final of the World Cup tournament in Qatar. In a thrilling match, Messi scored two goals while Mbappe got a hat-trick.

Messi’s Argentina squad looked like they would run away with it after going up 2-nil in the first half, but France made some key substitutions to battle back and send the game to extra time at 2-2. From there, the action only escalated as Messi scored his second goal, only to be matched by an Mbappe penalty kick with minutes remaining. The match would be decided by penalties and eventually it was Gonzalo Montiel that scored the deciding goal to bring the World Cup back to Argentina for the first time since 1986.
