The world cup final between Argentina and France was a tough game to predict. Argentina's two quick goals during the first half made everyone think that they would easily run away with the cup. However, the France manager made two early substitutions that brought the best out of Mbappe, who was moved to now play as a striker.
Messi scored twice with Mbappe later turning up with three goals during the hotly contested affair that saw the teams go to penalties where Argentina won after France lost two penalties. However, for Man United fans, it was clear that one of their defenders who were on opposite teams would win the world cup.
Lisandro Martinez did not play in the final for Argentina. However, Varane was crucial for France despite them loosing. After the Argentina win, Varane and Martinez, who form the bed rock for Man United's defence, showed that their bond was still as strong as ever.
First, Lisandro walked to where Varane stood with his France teammates to hug him and the two embraced for a long period. Later, as Varane was collecting the runner up medal, both players also hugged each other in what seemed like brotherly love.
