Lisandro Martinez has become the fifth player to win the World Cup during his Manchester United career, as Argentina beat France in the Qatar 2022 final on penalties following a dramatic 3-3 draw.

Kingsley Coman and Aurelien Tchouameni missed their spot kicks before Gonzalo Montiel scored the winner to give Argentina their third World Cup overall and a coveted first one for their talisman, Lionel Messi.

Messi then took his first step towards World Cup immortality, when he converted the first of the contest’s three penalties inside 120 minutes to give Argentina the lead.

Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele brought down former United winger Angel Di Maria inside the area midway through the first half and the referee immediately pointed to the spot.

Just two minutes later, substitute Kingsley Coman lifted the ball over the top of the Argentina defence and, with a first-time strike, Mbappe beat Martinez again to level the score at 2-2 and bring the initial 90 minutes to a most unexpected end.

Mbappe is only the second player to score a World Cup final hat-trick but unlike Geoff Hurst in 1966, he was on the losing side.

Argentina had prevailed over France, making Martinez a World Cup winner and giving Varane a runners-up medal to go with his gold one from four years ago.
