Legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo hailed Lionel Messi after the latter led Argentina to the World Cup win. Ronaldo claimed that any rivalry between the two nations is overshadowed by Messi’s skill.
On Sunday, the final game between Argentina and France was a lot of fun. After extra time, both teams tied at 3-3. Messi scored twice during the game, and after the first 90 minutes, the score was tied at 2-2.
Messi, who is now 35 years old, finally won the World Cup when Argentina won on penalties. He also won the Golden Ball, which is given to the player of the tournament, because he scored seven goals and set up three others during the competition.
Even Messi’s South American opponents seemed excited and happy for him after the amazing win he and his country won.
Ronaldo says that the fact that Brazil and Argentina have been strong rivals in the past doesn’t matter when it comes to praising the great guy because the World Cup is in his hands.
The 46-year-old athlete wrote on Twitter, “This guy’s football puts an end to any rivalry.”
“I noticed that a lot of people from Brazil and other countries and continents cheered for Messi during this exciting championship game.” A goodbye worthy of the genius who, in addition to being a World Cup star, ruled an entire generation. Congratulations Messi!’
Messi, a great player for PSG, had stated his intention to retire from international football prior to the championship game of the World Cup, and Ronaldo was sending him well wishes as he said goodbye.
In spite of this, he has changed his mind now that he is basking in the glory of the success in Qatar.
After the victory, Messi was asked by TyC Sports if he was going to retire from playing international football. He responded by saying, “No, I’m not going to retire from the national team.” I want to keep playing like a champion of the World Cup while wearing the Argentina shirt.’
Enzo Fernandez proved Liverpool’s £102m transfer ‘instinct’ as the World Cup final ended
Your Liverpool FC morning digest is here, as Luis Diaz extends his congratulations to Lionel Messi following Argentina’s victory in the World Cup and the Reds’ interest in Enzo Fernandez.
Today, the day after Lionel Messi was ultimately crowned the champion of the World Cup, it is time for your Liverpool FC morning digest.
As the final of the World Cup draws near, Enzo Fernandez has already demonstrated that Liverpool’s transfer instincts were spot on.
When searching for players to add to Jurgen Klopp’s squad in recent years, Liverpool has made a few forays into the Portuguese market.
Both Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez were bought by the club, which could be a record purchase for the team. In January, the Reds got Luis Diaz from Porto, and in the summer, they got Darwin Nunez from Benfica. Even though Diogo Jota was bought from Wolves, he is on Portugal’s national team and learned his skills in his home country. This included going to Porto on loan for a season.
The last big name to come out of the Primeira Liga was midfielder Enzo Fernandez. Fernandez moved from River Plate, a big team in Argentina, to Benfica in the summer for a transfer fee of €10 million. The 21-year-old player came up through River Plate’s academy. He joined the club in 2006 and played for their first team 53 times, scoring 12 goals and setting up 10 others before he was signed by a European club. Before he was sold, he played on their first team 53 times and scored 12 goals and had 10 assists.
It was said that Premier League team Wolves and Italian team Juventus were also interested in signing Fernandez. At the time, Benfica were not the only team interested in Fernandez. Melissa Reddy of Sky Sports said that Liverpool has kept a “watching brief” on the player. In Portugal, there have been recent rumors that the Reds and Benfica have made a “deal” for Fernandez’s transfer. But Fernandez’s great play for Argentina at the World Cup seems to have made people want him even more.
Luis Diaz sent Lionel Messi a letter with six words in it after they won the World Cup.
Luis Diaz, who plays wing for Liverpool, thinks that Lionel Messi “owes” a World Cup because he has had such a great career.
The forward for Paris Saint-Germain scored the game-winning goal for Argentina in the thrilling final match at the Lusail Stadium, which ended France’s tenure as world champions and ended Argentina’s 36-year quest for a world championship.
The two teams were forced to settle the 22nd World Cup final on penalties after efforts from Messi, Angel Di Maria, and a hat trick from 23-year-old phenom Kylian Mbappe. Argentina emerged winners from the shootout thanks to the actions of Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez.
Diaz was pleased with the fact that the Albiceleste became the first South American team to win the World Cup since Brazil in 2002, as a result of the Albiceleste’s victory.
