Marco Verratti spoke about the emotions of Argentina`s victory over France in the 2022 World Cup final.



ā€“ (Smiles) Iā€™m still Italian, so my name is Marco. But France is part of me. This country has given me a lot.



ā€“ I grew up and built a family on our site. When I arrived, I was a teenager. Today I am a man. Here in France I spent an important part of my life.



- Yes, sure. I have many friends in the French national team, my wife is French, my children were born in France. During the World Cup they were worried when France had problems.

But I was happy and upset at the same time. Argentina did something incredible. Especially for Messi.

He`s an incredible footballer and I thought it would be a shame if he ended his career without winning the trophy that matters most to him. He often heard that he could not win with the national team, but in two years he won everything (the America`s Cup in 2021, the Finalissima and the World Cup in 2022).

On the other hand, I wanted my friends from the French team to win. I wanted to see them happy. I was rooting for Kylian, for France and for the rest of my friends who play for this team. We will remember this final for a long time, ā€ said the PSG midfielder.
