The rest of Messi’s career will play out with satisfaction – however long he stays on the pitch

After an epic World Cup final it was not the Argentina shirt with the blue and white stripes that was visible on Lionel Messi’s crowning moment.

This was Messi’s first Middle Eastern World Cup.

Messi – The most distinguished employee of Qatar-owned French football team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), was finally awarded the biggest prize in football at 35.

After a 12-year World Cup journey, Qatar’s final match was at the Lusail stadium. This Lusail stadium is the centerpiece of Qatar’s PS200bn transformation. It was a picture-perfect end for Qatar.

Messi stated, “I wanted this so much.”

“I knew God would give me this gift. “I had the feeling that this was it.”

A player who won every major European honour with Barcelona, even before Qatar was controversially awarded the 2010 FIFA World Cup, was finally fulfilled in his destiny.

More than career longevity

Messi believes it was more than just about career longevity.

His enduring genius was displayed in this final, adding two goals to make Qatar 2022 a success with seven goals and three assists.

Messi was the first man to score in any knockout round in the World Cup. Argentina won the first half with a penalty.

The flowing counterattack ended in a magnificent Messi flick that culminated with Angel Di Maria winning the second half.

Argentina would have been reeling for decades if it hadn’t been for the shootout victory.

France were unable to score for 80 minutes, until Kylian Mbappe scored twice within two minutes.

Messi was unable to claim glory because of the ineptness of Hugo Lloris, France’s goalkeeper.

Even though Messi was able to retake Argentina’s lead in extra time, they still had to recover from Mbappe’s hat trick from the spot.

In the shootout, Messi and Mbappe did not save themselves enough to win the shot of victory.

PSG’s international rivals were able to take the team’s first penalties.

However, the French missed opportunities proved costly. All four were scored by Argentina.

“Can’t wait for Argentina to insanity”

Messi was able leave the World Cup stage without regrets.

There’s no need to regret the missed chance in the 2014 final. There is no need to make a 39-year-old go back in four years.

His career, which is one of the most important of all time, can be enjoyed with a feeling of satisfaction no matter how long he remains on the pitch.

Southgate to continue despite World Cup withdrawal

Messi, like Diego Maradona’s 1986 Argentina win, will always be a world champion.

Messi, like Ronaldo, didn’t need to win the World Cup to establish his legendary status. The trophy was just a confirmation of that.

It’s time to party.

He said, “I cannot wait to be there to witness the insanity this is.”
