Doha. At present, Lionel Messi, one of the greatest football players in the world, is probably playing his last World Cup this time. This will be his fifth World Cup. Argentina legend Lionel Messi will look to break through Luka Modric’s formidable Croatia defense to set up a dream final of the FIFA World Cup at the Lusail Stadium on Tuesday. The 37-year-old Modric, on the other hand, is in his fourth and last World Cup appearance. He will try to break Messi’s dream like Brazil’s Neymar to get the country the first world title under his captaincy.
Messi’s fans are all over the world. The 35-year-old Messi, who played for Argentina, has had an amazing career. He is compared to the late Diego Maradona, the great footballer. Argentina last won the World Cup under Maradona in 1986. Messi was not even born at that time. Messi has won 10 Spanish leagues, four Champions Leagues and the Copa America in 2021. Apart from this, he has also won the Ballon d’Awards seven times.
Messi has almost every award in the world of football except the FIFA World Cup trophy, for which he has been playing in every World Cup for the last 16 years (2006, 2010, 2014, 2018 and now 2022). Eight years ago, Messi led Argentina to the 2014 World Cup final, losing 0-1 to Germany.
