The 36-year-old Argentine became world champion in Qatar in December 2022 after scoring seven goals, including a brace in the final against France, to emulate Diego Maradona and secure his status as the GOAT.

Messi finished the World Cup with five ‘Player of the Match’ awards, including in the final – the most of any player in the competition’s history.

Before switching sides to David Beckham’s Inter Miami, Messi ended his spell with Paris Saint-Germain by winning the league title, scoring 16 goals, and registering 16 assists.

Upon his arrival in the US, Messi continued to stun the audience. He produced a goal and two assists in six MLS games but critically scored ten times in the Leagues Cup. La Pulga also scored an extra assist as he drove Inter Miami to their first-ever trophy, as they won the final 10-9 on penalties against Nashville SC. He also added two assists in the final of the US Open Cup, but Inter Miami couldn’t win the title.
