Messi’s World Cup journey
In the year 2006, Messi played the World Cup for the first time for Argentina. The 2010 World Cup in South Africa was nothing special for him. He could not score a single goal in this tournament. He made a strong comeback in the 2014 World Cup and took the team to the final. Germany won the title by defeating the team in extra time and broke the hearts of the entire Argentina along with Messi. The 2018 World Cup was very bad for Messi as the team was eliminated from the Round of 16 itself. Now in 2022, the team has once again made a strong comeback and made it to the finals.
