The 2022 World Cup in Qatar has come and gone. The winners, losers, and record breakers have all gone back to their countries to savour their victories or lick their wounds as the case may be.
Argentine captain, Lionel Messi, led his country to a victory at the Mundial, their first victory in 36 years. Argentina defeated France 4-2 on penalties in the most electrifying World Cup final match last Sunday.
We go back to review some of the highlights of the just-concluded World Cup in this video.
This is the first tournament in World Cup history to be held in the months of November and December. All past editions of the tournament were held either in the months of May, June or July.
The World Cup could not be held in the summer in Qatar because of the intense heat, and was consequently moved towards the end of the year when the temperature is cooler and more accommodating.
Also, Messi’s World Cup post became the most-liked picture on Instagram. For Nigeria, music star, Davido, performed at the World Cup closing ceremony, his first show after the death of his son and that was a big deal for Nigerians all over the globe.
