Inside Argentina’s wild dressing room celebrations as Messi dances with $10m cheque and star SOMERSAULTS into bin

ARGENTINA wildly celebrated their World Cup victory in the dressing room after the match.

In footage recorded by Argentine legend Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi and Co could be seen getting the party started immediately after leaving the pitch.

Aguero, 34, was forced to retire with health issues last year – but was invited back into the Argentina camp this week and made to still feel part of the victory.

The former Manchester City star even donned a full kit to get into the spirit of things, and his Instagram Live footage documented Argentina’s brilliant celebrations.

His video began with a moment that will warm City fans’ hearts – as he chatted with current Etihad hero Julian Alvarez.

Aguero then started swigging from a bottle, as the squad danced and sang to Latin music.

After the ex-striker had a chat with Angel Di Maria, he then captured another star on camera sensationally somersaulting into a bin.

Much more singing and dancing was to follow, with tournament sponsors Budweiser leaving plenty of bottles of beer out for the squad.

Messi then sensationally returned to the dressing room clutching the World Cup itself, clambering up on to the table and jumping up and down on it.

Boss Lionel Scaloni then arrived donning a retro Argentina shirt, and was promptly drenched by his players.

Argentina’s sing-song continued as Aguero was gleefully dragged into a Conga.

A $10million cheque was brought in by an official and held by Messi, who then danced with the huge prize.

Aguero then recorded Messi scrolling through his phone, without his old pal realising.

Stars also sang and danced as they went through the mixed zone after the match.

Messi had just had to go toe-to-toe with his club pal Kylian Mbappe in order to come out on top in this classic encounter.

The 35-year-old got his side off to the perfect start on 23 minutes, tucking away a penalty awarded for Ousmane Dembele’s light shove on Angel Di Maria.

He was involved in his team’s second goal 13 minutes later, his flick setting up a brilliant counter-attack that resulted in Di Maria making it 2-0.

It appeared that Argentina would ease to victory from this point, but Mbappe had other ideas.

His quick-fire late double sent the match into extra time, during which Messi again put his side in front.

But once again, Mbappe would level.

The clash went to penalties, with both Messi and Mbappe scoring theirs before the match was settled by their respective team-mates – Argentina prevailing 4-2 on spot kicks.
