FIFA World Cup 2022 ended on Sunday with Argentina getting crowned as the champions. The South American nation defeated France 4-2 (3-3) on penalties in the summit clash, to lift the coveted trophy after a hiatus of 36 years. The victory added a new feather to Lionel Messi’s decorated cap as he successfully carried forward the legacy of late Argentina great Diego Maradona. However, the FIFA World Cup 2022 is now over but the essence of the prestigious sporting event is still there among the fans, as well as no-football franchises.
The Big Bash League franchise Sydney Sixers, on Thursday, shared a hilarious post on Instagram, in which they announced mock-signing of Lionel Messi.
“JUST IN: Sydney Sixers make coup of the century with late signing of new replacement player for tonight’s SCG match,” the Sixers captioned the post.
Talking about the Sixers, the Moises Henriques-led team registered their first win of the season as they defeated Hobart Hurricanes on Thursday.
