On Sunday night, Messi scored two goals and then another in a shootout as Argentina beat France 4-2 on penalties after a 3-3 draw Sunday to claim a third World Cup title despite Kylian Mbappé scoring the first hat trick in a final in 56 years. Shah Rukh, before the match, had confessed that while his head wanted to support Mbappé’s team France, his heart belonged to Messi.
In a Twitter interaction on Saturday, Shah Rukh confessed, “Arre yaar the heart says Messi no?? But Mbappa is a treat to watch also." Even during the pre-game chat on Sunday, Shah Rukh confessed that he is inclined toward Messi and his team.
The actor was promoting his upcoming release Pathaan when he made the confession. Shah Rukh Khan joined legendary footballer Wayne Rooney to discuss all things football and Pathaan. During the chat, Shah Rukh jokingly asked Rooney how footballers like Argentina Lionel Messi are still young. King Khan added that he is a fan of Messi and was all praise for him.
