Sergio Aguero Carries Messi on His Shoulders Following Argentina's World Cup Win

Argentina captain Lionel Messi emulated Diego Maradona’s famous 1986 World Cup victory celebration when former teammate Sergio Aguero hoisted him on his shoulders at the end of an epic final in Qatar.

Video by TikTok user Zack Fortag shows Aguero, who retired from football in 2021 due to a heart condition, carrying his former teammate at the Lusail Stadium.

In what’s been hailed as perhaps the greatest World Cup final of all, Argentina, having gone 2-0 ahead, survived two France comebacks to win on penalties.

The win finally gave Messi a World Cup title, and Argentina their third, 36 years after Maradona led to country to victory in Mexico. Credit: Zack Fortag via Storyful
