Lionel Messi leads Argentina’s dressing room celebrations as he dances with the World Cup trophy


Lionel Messi led Argentina’s World Cup celebrations with the Player of the Tournament seen dancing on top of a table in the changing rooms – in footage recorded by Sergio Aguero.

The 35-year-old led his side to World Cup glory after an incredible final where Argentina defeated France on penalties.

The World Cup was the one trophy deserting Messi’s collection and it appears the PSG forward could not be happier to add it to his haul.

After getting on the table, Messi was joined by his teammate Lautaro Martinez who jumped up to dance with the World Cup trophy.

The rest of the changing room gathered round their captain and continued to chant away with the World Cup trophy at the centre of everyone’s attention.

The former Barcelona star then partied with the $10m cheque Argentina were given after winning the final.

The chanting went quiet whilst Messi was being presented with the cheque but when it was handed over to Argentina’s No. 10 normal service resumed and the champions chants started back up again.

After Messi finished dancing on tables and with cheques, the celebrations became slightly more unorthodox.

It was a brilliant World Cup final and one of the Argentina staff members decided there was no better way to celebrate than somersaulting into a bin.
