Lionel Messi is a seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, four-time Champions League winner and 10-time La Liga champion
For the 35-year-old himself, however, nothing comes close to winning Copa America with Argentina in 2021, the first in 28 years for the country and the first for him ever.
In one interview, he was shown the scenes of his own celebration of the trophy with the Argentine fans – and things got emotional.
Wow. I think this was the most beautiful thing that happened to me in my sports career,” Messi said as he relived the moment.
In a few weeks’ time, Messi will be a part of the Argentina side that will be a contender for the World Cup – and this could be his last chance to win the biggest international competition as a player.
