Lionel Messi’s Trophy Collection is Not Complete Despite Argentina Winning World Cup 2022
Lionel Messi, widely considered one of the greatest footballers of all time, has done a lot of great things on the pitch. He has won five Ballon D’Ors, eight La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies for Barcelona, and led Argentina to the 2014 World Cup final. Despite all these achievements, his trophy collection is missing a major prize – the World Cup.
Argentina’s Victory in 2022 World Cup Caps a Remarkable Career
After years of hard work, Lionel Messi’s dream of finally conquering the World Cup has been realised after Argentina captured the title in 2022, beating defending champions Brazil in the final. After the final whistle, Messi held the trophy in joy and relief, as his country celebrated its second World Cup triumph.
Messi’s Trophy Collection is Not Complete
Despite the success, it is important to note that Lionel Messi’s trophy collection is not complete. He doesn’t have a winner’s medal for any of the individual international tournaments. He has yet to make his mark in the Olympics and Nations Cup, two of the world’s most prestigious international tournaments.
What Does the Future Hold?
While it is possible that Lionel Messi could still fulfil his dream of winning an individual international tournament, it will likely be difficult. Messi is now 32 years old, and his best years as a footballer may be behind him.
Furthermore, it is also worth noting that Argentina’s World Cup victory was a team effort. Without a talented supporting cast, it is unlikely that Messi would have had the opportunity to lift the trophy.
In any case, Lionel Messi’s career is one for the history books. Despite his lack of individual international glory, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner will always be remembered as one of the best players the world has ever seen.
Lionel Messi is one of the greatest players of all time, with a trophy cabinet to match. However, his collection is not complete until he wins a major individual international tournament. Although Argentina’s victory in 2022 was a remarkable team effort, it is unlikely that Lionel Messi will fulfil his dream of adding an individual World Cup, Olympics or Nations Cup winners medal to his collection before his career comes to an end.
