Facundo Medina: ‘The French have been broken since the World Cup final’


The World Cup final may have been more than a month ago, but most Argentines seem to remember it like it was yesterday.

Argentina ended their long wait for Qatar 2022 and won their third ever FIFA World Cup under the leadership of one of the greatest players of all time, Lionel Messi. Of course, the triumph was celebrated across the planet as many wanted to see the PSG star lift the trophy.

Lionel Scaloni’s side bounced back from a heavy defeat to Saudi Arabia on their debut to produce well and set up a massive final against then-reigning champions France.

The World Cup decider exceeded expectations as fans witnessed a dramatic match that went all the way to penalties. As France are still trying to recover from that loss, Lens player Facundo Medina continues to mock them.

Medina, who had been called up by Lionel Scaloni during the World Cup qualifiers – making an appearance in the away win vs. Bolivia – is enjoying his time at Lens, who are second in the Ligue 1. Following his team’s recent win against Brest in the French Cup, Medina had a hilarious response to a reporter.

“Facundo, are you broken? Don’t you want to come to the microphone just a minute?” the reporter asked Medina in Spanish. “The French have been broken since the World Cup final,” Medina joked.
