It was always my dream to become world champion and I didn’t want to stop trying even though I knew it might never happen.

“This trophy that we won is also tough for all those who didn’t reach it in the previous World Cups we played, like in Brazil in 2014, where everyone deserved it because they fought until the final worked and wanted him as much as I did… And we deserved it even in that damn final.

Messi also celebrated Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona, who became the last captain of the national team to win the world title in 1986.

He continued: “It’s also Diego who gave us courage from heaven. And from all those who have always supported the national team, not looking so much at the result as at the will that we always put into it , even when things didn’t go well.” we wanted.

“And of course from all this wonderful group that has formed and from the coaching staff and all the people from the national team who work anonymously day and night to make it easier for us.

“Often failure is part of the journey and learning, and success is impossible without disappointment.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Let’s go to Argentina!!!”
