Lionel Messi, the leader of Argentina world champion

And one day he raised in his hands the ultimate dream of anyone who loves football as much as he does. Lionel Messi He is a world champion and, for many, the best soccer player of all time.

The “10” of the Argentine team has shown in the last final against France, considered the best in the history of the World Cups, that he is made not only of talent with the ball at his feet, but is also capable of taking to bring out that hierarchy and claw that once upon a time the albiceleste fan yelled from the stands.

17 years have passed since Lionel Messi debuted with the ‘Albiceleste’. On August 17, 2005, in a match against Hungary, he was sent off the field a minute after taking Lisandro López’s place. His first time with the national team resulted in a very special anecdote and perhaps it was the premonition of a career full of success and glory.

If we talk about World Cups, the ‘Flea’ debut took place on June 16, 2006 for the second date of Group C against Serbia and Montenegro, at the Veltins-Aren stadium. That day, the team led by José Pekerman shone with a resounding 6-0.

Since that first match, Messi has played in a total of 5 World Cups and, until last Sunday, the opportunity to add another star to his ‘Albiceleste’ chest had been elusive.

Today, Argentina is world champion at the hands of its greatest figure today and, why not say it, of its entire history. Today more than ever, football lovers surrender to “the best of all time”, as the German sports brand Adidas has described it, which has accompanied Lionel Messi from its inception until he saw him lift the highest football trophy.
