Lionel Messi not only helped Argentina win their first World Cup trophy in Qatar 2022, but he also created history with his outstanding performance throughout the tournament.
In the championship match against France, Messi scored twice, once from the penalty spot in the first half and once in extra time to give Argentina a 3-2 lead. With that, he set a World Cup final record for the oldest man to score multiple goals. 35 years of age are La Pulga.
He also got the Golden Ball award, which is given to the top player in the competition, with his seven goals and three assists over the entire tournament. He became the only player in history to accomplish this feat after also taking home the Golden Ball in the 2014 edition of the competition when Argentina came in second.
After the victory, there was a justifiable joy for Lionel Messi. Without him, Argentina would not have been able to get to the finals. He has really stepped up for the nation.
After the win, a few fans referred to him as the “GOAT” on Twitter, and given that he has now achieved every possible victory for club and country, it’s difficult to contest those claims.
Messi was merely appreciative of the affection and support he received during the competition. Messi broke down in tears as he pondered on their road to the trophy in a post on Instagram following the win.
“I want to express my sincere gratitude to my family, my supporters, and everyone who had faith in us. We once again demonstrate that Argentinians can accomplish their goals when they fight together and as a united front.
The strength of this community, which stands above individuals, comes from everyone working toward the same goal, which was also the aspiration of all Argentinians. We succeeded! LET’S GO, ARABIA, DAMN IT! As translated on Instagram, Messi wrote. Messi has all the time in the world to enjoy his most recent triumph right now. He deserves it without a doubt.
