Legendary Indian opener Virender Sehwag, known for his distinct sense of humor, sent forth an amazing tweet during Sunday’s FIFA World Cup 2022 final between Argentina and France, which Lionel Messi-led Argentina won.

Earlier, Messi and Mbappe received praise from former Indian cricketer Sehwag for their outstanding efforts in the FIFA World Cup 2022 championship game. “One of the best World Cup matches ever. Although Mbappe was brilliant for France, Lionel Messi was supposed to be the show’s star. Buenos Aires, congratulations on winning the #FIFAWorldCup, wrote Sehwag in a tweet.
One of the greatest World Cup games of all time. Mbappe was outstanding for France but it was meant to be Lionel Messi’s crowning moment. Congratulations Argentina on becoming the #FIFAWorldCup champions.
