03:29 (IST)2 JUN 2022

Argentina were eager to test themselves against European opposition for the first time in almost three years and will leave more than satisfied with what they have discovered. Their combative spine – De Paul, Romero, Otamendi – all excelled, while the front three clicked from the off, Messi and Di María dovetailing to devastating and beautiful effect behind Lautaro, who ended with a goal and an assist. The Albiceleste are worthy Finalissima winners.

FULL TIME: Italy 0-3 Argentina 

Argentina are Champions! Argentina form a circle and begin to dance after winning the Finalissima! That third goal encapsulated Argentina's slickness and serrated attacking brilliance tonight, Messi charging towards the penalty area and setting a cast of backtracking defenders off balance before Dybala took a deft touch to free himself inside the penalty area, then fired his finish beyond Donnarumma's dive and in off a post. The celebrations are almost as eye-catching as the goals as the South American stylists prepare to receive the trophy!
