Overview of how the Argentine’s goals and assists defied football
The 2022 World Cup victory was a landmark in Lionel Messi‘s life. He had been treated unfairly by pundits and the media for Argentina’s lack of international success. And despite the fact that he won the Copa America in 2021 and Finalissima in 2022, the later was still not taken into consideration as it was believed that the competition was minimal.
And those burdens and hopes of many people around the world were lifted when the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner raised the Jules Rimet trophy, as he won the prize that had lingered from his touch.
Also, the 35-year-old’s accomplishments at the club level were overshadowed by his FIFA World Cup victory, which allowed him to join Pele and Diego Maradona at the same table.

Also, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has gone through all the peaks and valleys in life.
Then came his dramatic farewell from Barcelona, the club where he spent his formative years and played for 17 years, winning every trophy along the way and shattering records left and right.
Numerous spectators lined up outside Paris to catch a glimpse of him after joining PSG, but his performance failed to win over the crowd, as he was booed for the first time in his life after PSG’s shocking Champions League loss to Real Madrid.
