Argentina 2-1 England
This unbelievable sport comes up with the goods once again on the grandest stage!
Abraham weaves passed the defender and into Maddison... England Score!
The Argentina players surround the ref in the hope that anything they do will dismiss the goal.
Drama late on here as the VAR give it as offside and it's bloody close. (Sorry for the language you heard)
Argentina lift the World Cup after nearly 4 decades of waiting!
The news break that Messi isn't retiring but heading in that direction after passing on the captaincy after the World Cup triumph!
Messi had previously been to 4 finals with the national side, 3 Copa America's (2007, 2015 and 2016) and 1 World Cup (2014). 15 and 16 were both lost on penalties against Chile, with Messi missing his in 2016.
"I have been part of the Argentina setup for many many years and this was always my aim! I saw many of my idols and teammates life this most precious trophy and I sat in awe.
When we finished 2nd last time (2014) I thought it would be my last chance get near the trophy, but this group starting with Scaloni arriving in 2018 has always worked hard as a group to be successful. I now want to give the captaincy to the next man so I can play my final games with the National side without the pressure it brings with it."
