    Argentina won the World Cup for the third time in their history on Sunday, beating France on penalties after they drew 3-3 after extra-time.

    It may have been written in the stars for them from the very beginning, with a foreseeing message now uncovered.

    As revealed on Twitter, De Paul left a note in the hotel room of teammate and Argentine hero Lionel Messi back in September.

    It read: “I am Rodrigo De Paul (7). It is 9/18/2022.

    “I sign this paper and say that we will win the World Cup two months from now.”

    Luckily for De Paul and Argentina, the midfielder’s prediction became a reality, with the South Americans now world champions.

    The winning squad have returned home with the biggest prize in world football now safe in their possession.

    It is their first triumph in the competition since 1986, with the final proving to be one of the most exciting there has ever been.

    Messi was one of the stars of the show, with the 35-year-old adding another trophy to his extensive list of accolades.

    Argentina will now be able to celebrate their success in the days to come, with the World Cup finally returning to South America.
