The match between Argentina and Mexico at Lusail Stadium last night, November 26, 2022, made history with nearly 88,966 spectators in attendance. According to a tweet released by FIFA, this is the highest attendance in FIFA World Cup history for men, ever since the 1994 Final.

The 1994 FIFA World Cup Final between Brazil and Italy which was held in the United States was the most recent World Cup Final to see a little over 94,000 in attendance.

According to FIFA, the venues that host the FIFA World Cup opening and final matches are supposed to hold an audience between a minimum of 60,000 to 80,000. The spectacular Lusail Stadium more than fulfilled the requirements with a count of 88,966 spectators.

Last night’s match was a decisive one for Argentina in order to qualify for the next round due to their shocking 2-1 defeat against Saudi Arabia on November 22, 2022. With neither side scoring in the first half, Argentina went in strong for the second half with Lionel Messi scoring in the 64th minute and Enzo Fernández in the 87th minute giving Argentina a 2-0 victory against Mexico.

The match which kicked-off at 10 pm in Lusail Stadium, had Argentine fans celebrating all through the night after their remarkable win.

The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will be Messi’s last chance at winning the coveted FIFA World Cup™ trophy for Argentina.
