‘Beautiful’–Cristian Romero has no regrets about celebrating in opponent’s face 

Cristian Romero has acknowledged that he doesn’t feel sorry for his celebratory actions in front of Kylian Mbappe after Lionel Messi scored a goal during the FIFA World Cup final.

Romero made a fist and yelled at Mbappe from a very close distance after Messi’s goal put Argentina ahead 3-2 during extra time.

The goal scored by Messi appeared to be the decisive one, but there was a surprising turn of events when France received a penalty kick, and Mbappe successfully converted it, forcing the game to proceed to a penalty shootout. 

Despite this setback, Romero and his team Argentina had the ultimate victory, winning the shootout 4-2 and claiming the World Cup title after a gap of 36 years.

When questioned about his celebratory behavior towards Messi’s goal, Cristian Romero clarified that it was a form of retaliation after Kylian Mbappe had reportedly scolded Enzo Fernandez during the same match. Romero, who is associated with Tottenham, justified his actions in this way.

When shown the photo, Romero told TyC Sports (as translated by The Sun): “The photo is beautiful.

“We are always the bad guys in the movie, but Mbappe was saying very bad things to Enzo. Leo just scored the goal and it came from inside me to do that.”

The defender acknowledged that he is currently more at ease with his aspirations for the future, having contributed to Argentina’s success in winning the World Cup.

He added: “Surely for the next few years I’ll be more calm, without this pressure in the national team for having achieved everything.

“Being world champion is the most important thing to happen to me as a player, but recently, I have relaxed a little.

“I leave it a bit aside otherwise my Tottenham teammates get a bit angry.”
