The 2022 Qatar World Cup marked a historic moment in football history, as Lionel Messi, one of the sport’s true legends, finally claimed the coveted world crown. This triumph brought an end to the lingering question of whether Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo deserved the title of the “Greatest of All Time” (GOAT). The tournament not only solidified Messi’s legacy but also left fans with a clear answer, favoring Messi’s performance over Ronaldo’s. As debates between Ronaldo and Messi fans raged on social media, FIFA’s tweet on the matter has ignited fresh discussions. Let’s delve into the details.
Messi and Ronaldo GOAT debate
The Qatar World Cup ended up being one of the best World Cups in football World Cup history. Qatar saw the legend of Lionel Messi rising to the top of the world with the world crown.
Messi smiled with the world crown in front of fans who were worried that Messi would have to take off his boots without the World Cup. When Messi says goodbye to Qatar with everything perfect, Qatar is a memory that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to forget.
Before the Qatar World Cup, Messi-Ronaldo’s ‘goat’ was a matter of great debate. But now it can be said that Messi’s performance is to eliminate Ronaldo in the film.
While Ronaldo fans and Messi fans continue to fight on social media, FIFA’s tweet is now being discussed. Let’s see what it is.
Ronaldo and Messi: FIFA says Messi is ‘GOAT’
The question of who is GOAT is no longer relevant and the most distinguished trophy has been added to that collection, FIFA tweeted, noting that Messi the GOAT was the star of the final. This tweet has already gone viral. Ronaldo detractors and Messi fans alike are celebrating FIFA’s tweet. The only thing left for Messi to win before the World Cup was the World Cup. By owning that, Messi has risen far above Ronaldo. Ronaldo is only behind Messi because Ronaldo is not young enough to win another World Cup.
Ronaldo and Messi: Qatar World Cup Messi shows his genius
The Qatar World Cup ends as a World Cup filled with Lionel Messi. Messi, who had already announced that this would be his last World Cup, led Argentina from the front with 7 goals and 3 assists. Messi’s average goal contribution per match was 1.5. Messi lost the Golden Boot one goal behind Kylian Mbappé, but the star of the final and the Golden Ball are all Messi’s own. Along with Messi, he also holds the record of being the first player to win the World Cup Golden Ball twice. It remains to be seen whether Messi, who has announced that he is not retiring, for the time being, will be available for the next World Cup.
World Cup where Ronaldo cried
Few believed that Portugal would win the World Cup. But many expected to see the great performance of the legend Cristiano Ronaldo. But the Qatar World Cup ends as a World Cup in which Ronaldo has completely faded. Ronaldo scored only one goal. Ronaldo was in the role of substitute in many matches. Needless to say, Ronaldo did not get enough support from the Portugal team. Rono’s face, who left the field crying when Portugal was eliminated in the quarter-finals, left a big wound in the hearts of the fans.
There is no turning back for Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo has been called shoulder-to-shoulder with Messi for so long, but he will no longer receive such a title. With the World Cup in Qatar, Ronaldo has been elevated above Messi. It can be said that Ronaldo is not a part of any club at the moment after being released from Manchester United. Another comeback will not be easy for Ronaldo. Only second behind Messi in Ronaldo’s history behind Messi.
11 million dislikes of Messi! They were at home
After 36 years of waiting, the excitement of winning another World Cup is buzzing in Argentina. While the country and the city are excited, the legend Lionel Messi and his team are celebrating the country like wildfire. After the former legend Diego Maradona, it took the successor Messi to give the country another world title.
With the World Cup victory, he has underlined that he is the most talented player in modern football. Messi has overtaken Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo to claim the title of Goat.
But the truth is that this is still difficult for some to accept. One such is British broadcaster Piers Morgan. He has responded by mocking Messi through social media.
Celebration in the streets
Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in the streets yesterday to celebrate Argentina’s World Cup win. The players of the world champion Argentina team had greeted them in an open bus with the crown. All the videos and pictures of this were released. Around four million people took to the streets to greet Messi and his team. Buenos Aires has a population of approximately 15 million. Piers Morgan sarcastically asks where the remaining 11 million people have gone.
Only four million with Messi
The total population of the city of Buenos Aires is 15 million. Of this, about four million people came to the streets to greet Lionel Messi and his team and share their joy. Did the remaining 11 million stay indoors? Piers Morgan wrote on Twitter that it is because they also think like me that Diego Maradona is the Argentine GOAT.
Nothing is surprising about this tweet by Piers Morgan, which indirectly makes fun of Lionel Messi. Because he is a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and has come against Messi before. When Argentina beat France in a penalty shootout to win the final, Morgan’s tweet read – Yes, I agree that debate is over once and for all…Cristiano is the GOAT.
Messi on success
Lionel Messi wrote on his Instagram after the World Cup win – The end was tough but we deserved it. This is also for Diego who encouraged us in heaven. It is also deserved for those who have always had to sit on the bench in the national team without thinking about the result. Even when things didn’t go as we wanted, the desire was always there within us.
Diego Maradona’s son shared this post of Lionel Messi on Instagram and congratulated Messi and his team. Argentina is the world champion. Leo Messi, very happy for you. Because no one deserves this cup more than you. I feel very happy about my country and the people in the country. I have always felt that your soul is Argentina. My father must be there celebrating it. You don’t know how much I want to hug you, Diego Maradona Jr.
