According to reports, Lionel Messi will play his last game for Argentina at the 2022 FIFA World Cup final. Argentines defeated Croatia 3-0 in the first semi-final on Wednesday after Messi scored from the penalty spot and set up the third goal.
Aside from scoring five goals in the tournament so far, Messi became Argentina’s top goalscorer in World Cups, surpassing Gabriel Batistuta (10). As of now, the 35-year-old has scored 11 World Cup goals.
As Messi told Argentine media outlet Diario Deportivo Ole, “I am very happy to be able to play my last World Cup game in a final.”
I don’t think I’ll be able to do the next one. To finish like this, it’s the best.”
Messi urged his teammates to “enjoy” the semi-final win over Croatia.
Once again, Argentina is in the World Cup final. Enjoy it!” said Messi.
“We’ve been through tough situations as well as good ones. Today is something special.”
During the tournament, Manchester City forward Julian Alvarez has scored four goals in as many games.
After losing 1-2 to Saudi Arabia in their opening group game, Argentina slipped into doubt as one of the tournament favorites. Before arriving in Doha, they were unbeaten in 36 matches.
At the Lusail Stadium on Sunday, either Morocco or holders France will face the two-time champions.
