Argentina defender Nicolás Tagliafico reportedly got married with the World Cup trophy there for the celebration and kissed the trophy during the wedding reception.

After the Argentinian national team won the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Argentina defender Nicolás Tagliafico followed that up by getting married. Tagliafico celebrated his marriage to Caro Calvagni in Buenos Aires on Tuesday, Dec. 27. After the marriage, during the wedding reception, the couple hoisted and kissed the World Cup trophy while Queen's "We Are the Champions" played in the background, CBS Sports reported.

Tagliafico reportedly played in five matches for Argentina in its run to the World Cup title. He started in the semifinal and final matches and played 119 minutes in what proved to be an epic World Cup final against France.

Tagliafico took some time to thank his bride-to-be with a post on Instagram between the team's World Cup victory and his wedding.

"You always followed me and supported me, you were there in all the bad and good times I had," Tagliafico wrote on Instagram. "And in a dreamy night I realized how valuable it is to have you, because no matter what, you're going to be there! I love you @carocalvagni"

Argentina beat France in the penalty shootout in a pulsating game that was labeled by many as one of the best finals in World Cup history.

Argentina’s remarkable victory over France on Sunday also put an end to a 36-year World Cup drought for the nation. Argentina hadn’t won the FIFA World Cup since Diego Maradona and the team won the title in 1986.

Messi, who had declared before the World Cup in Qatar that the 2022 FIFA World Cup would be his last, won the Golden Ball for best player in the tournament. Meanwhile, Martinez was awarded the Golden Glove for best goalkeeper. Enzo Fernandez was adjudged the winner of the Best Young Player award. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe finished as the top scorer of the tournament with eight goals and received the Golden Boot.
