Argentina defeats France at one of most controversial World Cup’s ever

Argentina defeated France on penalties 4-2 following a 3-3 tie after extra time at the men’s World Cup final on Sunday in Doha, Qatar.

The win clinched Argentina’s first title on soccer’s biggest stage in 36 years. Lionel Messi scored twice, and Angel Di Maria added another for Argentina.

Argentina won its previous World Cup titles in 1978 and 1986. In Qatar, the country backed up its victory from last year’s Copa America, its first major trophy since 1993.

This ends one of the most controversial world cup tournaments with allegations of abuse of migrant workers and human rights violations. Calls for reparations have been make for the worker and demands for higher human right standards for future world cups.

The next world cup will be hosted by 16 cities in North America in 2026. It remains to be seen how human rights will be addressed at these games.
