Argentina defeated France on penalties in the FIFA World Cup 2022 final as Lionel Messi scored a brace while his PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe scored a hattrick but failed to help his side win the title. Meanwhile, Zlatan's Sweden failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar.
During an interview with France Inter, Zlatan said, " I said Argentina will for sure win the World Cup. If you want to remember the Qatar World Cup for the rest of history, who is going to win? Messi because Messi is considered the best player in history. But I feel sorry for Mbappe, because if you score four goals in the final (including penalty shoot-out) and don't win the World Cup, that is very sad."

He added, "But he will win another World Cup and he has already won one, so I'm not worried about Mbappe. I'm worried about the other players of Argentina because they will not win anything else. Messi has won everything and he will be remembered. But the rest, that behaved badly, we can't respect that. This is coming from me as a professional football player at a high level. For me, it's a sign that they will win one time and will not win any more, because you don't win like that."
However, Zlatan's comments hasn't gone well with former Argentina and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero. The 34-year-old slammed the Swede on his Twitch stream and said, " It seems to me that it’s very rude to say that we are not going to win anymore. I think that before worrying about Argentina, you could worry about your country, about your players, who are not even in the last World Cups."
Sergio Aguero played 101 matches for La Albiceleste and scored 41 goals before retiring in 2021 as he was diagnosed with a cardiac arrhythmia – or irregular heartbeat during Barcelona's 1-1 draw against Alaves in October.
