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.
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.
