Argentina celebrates its national team's 2022 FIFA World Cup victory

The Argentine government has declared Tuesday December 20th 2022 will be a bank holiday so that the entire country “can express their deepest joy for the national team”.

“Argentina, here we come,” AFA president Claudio Tapia said on his Twitter account.

Argentina beat France 4-2 on penalties after a 3-3 draw in a thrilling game that was seen by many as one of the best finals in World Cup history.

"The world champion squad will leave on Tuesday at noon for the Obelisk to celebrate the world title with the fans," the Argentine Football Association (AFA) said on its official Twitter account.

The national team, who beat France in the final on Sunday, will arrive in the country in the early hours of Tuesday on a state airline flight and spend the night at the federation’s training centre located near the airport, according to local media reports.

Members and coaches of the winning team will depart the Argentina Football Federation's (Asociacion del Futbol Argentino, AFA) main training field in the city of Ezeiza at around 12:00 Dec. 20 before traveling by bus to the Obelisco monument in the center of the nation's capital for the main celebration. The players will also likely meet with government representatives at the presidential office building, the Casa Rosada.
