The PSG star captioned the pictures, “CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!
“So many times I dreamed it, so much I wanted it that I still didn’t fall, I can’t believe it……
“Thank you so much to my family, to all who support me, and also to all who believed in us. We proved once again that when Argentinians fight together and are united we are able to achieve our aims.
“The merit belongs to this group, which is above individualities, it is the strength of all fighting for the same dream that was also one of all Argentinians.
“We did it!!! LET’S GO ARGENTINA DAMN!!!!! We’ll see each other very soon.”
