Leo Messi

, who completed his trophy collection by capping it off with a World Cup, is now opening up about the experience of facing teammate Kylian Mbappe.

"It really was a breathtaking final, it's crazy how the match went. Kylian's performance was great too. Scoring three goals in a final and not being able to be a champion was something crazy,"

Messi told PSG's YouTube channel.

"But he's already won it too, he knows what it is to be world champion. But it was a beautiful final for the world of football. And now it's nice to be able to play for the same team and hopefully we can do great things in Paris,"
