(2022 FIFA World Cup Champions Argentina)
Lionel Andres Messi has won every trophy that was ever on show for the little man from Argentina, with December 18, 2022, being the day he completed football. Messi, 35, won the FIFA World Cup trophy after a pulsating game against defending champions France.

The South Americans went into the game with the most pressure of wanting to proclaim that Messi is the greatest ever, and “give their lives” for the magician. Also seeing as the last four World Cups were won by European teams, the mountain to climb couldn’t be higher.

Messi went up against France and club teammate Kylian Mbappe which would decide whether he can complete the sport or the passing of the torch in front of our eyes. Well, Messi won, and the torch was not passed but taken. After Lionel Messi scored an early penalty and Angel Di Maria made it two-nil, it was the Kylian Mbappe show.

The French footballer of the year took his measly eleven touches in the first half personally and within the space of 90 seconds made it 2-2. This was the time Argentine fans and football fans know all too well. After 120 minutes, another French penalty and a goal line scramble the game headed to penalties where the shootout was won by Argentine custodian Emiliano Martinez becoming the hero.

With this win where does the G.O.A.T debate rest? Is Messi the greatest to ever grace the sport? Do Diego Maradona and Pele still have an edge? What we do know is that he has won every trophy on demand and there is a party everlasting in Buenos Aires.

Well, I am 18 years old currently undergoing my Bachelors of Science in Media and communications. I'm currently in my first semester and I would like to be a sports analyst in the future. I am also from Jamaica. I would like to work at one of the biggest sports companies in the world (ESPN/SKY/BT) but everyone needs a start and I would love it if you were to give me that start.
