Lionel Messi and the 2022 FIFA World Cup

Lionel Messi and the 2022 FIFA World Cup
Messi never needed the World Cup to prove his greatness; this World Cup and football require Messi to stand on the winner's podium.

Lionel Messi Everyone’s personal favourite returns in his final World Cup match

Everyone’s personal favourite Lionel Messi returns in his final World Cup match to finish what was left unfinished in the 2014 final and the 2018 Round of 16. Should France line up, the terrifying cliche of vengeance can be revised to best-served-old.

Similarly to how the 1986 World Cup became known as Diego Maradona’s World Cup, the 2022 edition is set to become synonymous with Messi. Only Morocco going all the way may be more appealing to the drama’s audience. For the time being, no one can shake the impending global joy and sense of completion that a Messi World Cup victory would bring.

For Messi, with redemptive rage gleaming in his eyes and unrivalled talent

Messi, with redemptive rage gleaming in his eyes and unrivalled talent, has stamped his right to win the World Cup in Qatar. The last fortnight has been replete with the “Aha” moments that mould Messi into a messiah.

His goals are secondary to his magical passes — the redeemer’s halo is in sharp relief, while the goal scorer’s face is a mere blur. Messi’s two assists for Molina and Alvarez raise his team-player credentials to new heights. Ronaldo’s utility as the ideal antagonist — one who does not inspire trust, does not start, does not pass, and does not score — is perfectly woven into this script.

But Messi never needed a Ronaldo to be crowned the greatest of all time. His blazing talent combined with fierce ambition, a national coach and team finally drumming up the perfect symphony, and his own realisation of a last chance all contributed to 2022 being poised for this historic moment.

Messi dropping back to do for his teammates what Iniesta and Xavi did for him, Messi replicating his Barcelona, PSG tango alongside Neymar, Suarez, and Mbappe, was bound to riff on Argentina at some point. Messi has never needed the World Cup to prove his greatness; however, this World Cup and football require Messi to stand on the winner’s podium.
