Shin. Lionel Messi has only one game left.
Argentina succeeded in advancing to the final by winning 3-0 against Croatia in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Qatar World Cup held on the morning of the 14th (Korean time).
Ace and captain Messi led Argentina to victory. Messi scored the opening goal from a penalty kick in the 33rd minute of the first half. It was Messi’s 5th goal in this World Cup and 11th in his World Cup career. He also assisted the team’s third goal with a fantastic dribble in the 24th minute of the second half. It was Messi’s third help in this World Cup. 5 goals and 3 assists. Messi is currently number 1 in goals and number 1 in assists.
In addition, Messi dominated the ground, such as dribbling, passing, and coordination. Argentina, united around Messi, did not miss the victory.
Messi, who played in the semifinals against Croatia, wrote World Cup history. Messi’s total World Cup appearances have increased to 25. Starting with 3 matches in the 2006 World Cup in Germany, 5 matches in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, 7 메이저사이트 matches in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, 4 matches in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and 6 matches in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
His 25 appearances is the record for the most appearances in a World Cup ever. It’s still tied for first place. German football legend Lothair Matheus also made 25 appearances. It is very likely that Messi will rise to the all-time number 1 spot, as it is clear that he will make it to the finals.
And what is expected more than the most appearances in the World Cup is the coronation of the emperor. Messi was regarded as the best player in the world and collected almost every trophy he could lift, but not a single World Cup trophy. He has failed in all of his last 4 challenges. 2014 Brazil World Cup runner-up is the best result.
If Messi goes to the final and wins the championship, he will finally be able to hold the trophy in Messi’s last World Cup. It is possible to watch Messi’s coronation ceremony that soccer fans around the world have been waiting for so long.
And if the coronation takes place, history will judge Messi differently. It was Messi who always had to be devalued because he had never won a major tournament. But Messi proved it. He stood at the top of the Copa America, the World Cup in South America, and then won the World Cup.
If Messi wins the remaining 1 game, he can become the ‘GOAT (Greatest of all time)’ without dispute.
