Cricketers and their love for football is an established phenomenon, and it was on display once again when the highly-anticipated FIFA World Cup final took place between France and Argentina. Cricketers from all corners were spotted rooting for their favourite team and enjoying the thrilling contest.

Lionel Messi-led Argentina defeated France in a penalty shootout by 4-2 and ended the nation’s wait of 36 years for their third FIFA World Cup title at Lusail Stadium in Qatar. Both sides have scored two goals each, and the match went into extra time. Messi then struck in the 108th minute before Mbappe equalled the equation in the 118th minute as the contest was still hanging in the balance with a 3-3 scoreline. Finally, the fate of the match was sealed by a penalty shootout where Argentina got the better of France.

Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar congratulated Argentina and heaped praises on their skipper Messi along with the goalkeeper Martinez.

“Many congratulations to Argentina on doing this for Messi! Wonderful comeback from the way they started the campaign. Special mention to Martinez for the spectacular save towards the end of extra time. That was a clear indication to me that Argentina would clinch this,” wrote Tendulkar on Twitter.
