Argentina won the World Cup title on Sunday, ending its wait of 36 years, as it edged out defending champions France with a 4-2 score on penalties after a 3-3 draw on Sunday. Lionel Messi scored twice in a 3-3 draw and Kylian Mbappe grabbed a hat-trick to bring the holders back from 2-0 and 3-2 down.

It was an incredible night of drama, high emotion and fluctuating fortunes, delivering one of the all-time great finals to cap a wonderful tournament as its two star players delivered command performances on the biggest stage of all.

However, what caught the attention of the Indian fans on social media was that when the Argentinian team arrived at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar for the Finals, the bus was driven by a Sikh man.

Also, the Sikh man appeared to be a fan of Argentina and Messi and he was sporting a sky blue turban.

Sharing the video on Twitter, Harjinder Singh Kukreja said: “Argentina had an advantage. A Sikh gentleman drove the bus carrying the Argentinian team to the Lusail Stadium in Qatar. That’s a good omen…To top it all, he looked like an Argentinian fan. His sky blue Turban matched all the hype for today’s big final.”

Meanwhile, people were really amazad by this and made heat-touching comments on the post. 

For Messi, it was after five attempts and a record 26 World Cup finals matches that he was able to lead Argentina to win the title after 1986.

After the game, players and their families posed for pictures on the pitch and went for a joyous lap of honour, parading the golden trophy they last had their hands on 36 years ago.
