Elon Musk reveals Kylian Mbappe’s comeback goals for France against Argentina breaks World Cup Twitter record

The World Cup final between Argentina and France was absolute box office viewing.

It even broke records on Twitter after the sheer drama in the Lusail Stadium in Qatar.

Mbappe’s goals produced one of the memorable moments in World Cup final history

Argentina had one hand on the trophy after Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria netted first half goals.

France were dreadful for the first 80 minutes of the match before they sparked into life.

Kylian Mbappe scored a penalty and then 97 seconds later his magnificent effort brought the match back level.

The events unfolding on the pitch were tough to put into words, but it seems like plenty of people tried.

As those goals went in, people were opening up Twitter to post about it.

The social media platform’s owner, who is at the final, revealed it was the most talked about World Cup moment ever on the site.

He wrote: “24,400 tweets per second for France’s goal, highest ever for the World Cup!”

Those two goals from the 2018 champions took the game to extra-time as the drama continued to unfold.

That moment was possibly rivaled by Messi going on to get a goal in extra-time to put Argentina back ahead.

Before Mbappe scored again from the spot to grab his hat-trick and take the game to penalties.

Mbappe and Messi scored their penalties, but Emiliano Martinez got in Kingsley Coman and Auerlien Tchouameni’s heads – one penalty was saved, the other dragged wide.

And that allowed Gonzalo Montiel to step up, send Hugo Lloris the wrong way and allow Messi to lift the World Cup trophy for the first time in his career.
