World Cup Goal Machine
Messi won the World Cup in 2022 but that wasn’t the only remarkable aspect of his tournament. He set and broke many records along the way as one of the tournament’s greatest players. One of these saw him become the first player to score in each round of the same campaign. It was a fantastic stat that’s typical of his legendary career (via ESPN).
Kylian Mbappe was the Golden Boot winner and threatened to steal Messi’s thunder. His bravery and amazing talent inspired France into extra time in the final. But Messi is one of the top clutch players ever and proved this in the shootout. He calmly chipped the ball to Hugo Lloris’s left and the rest is history.
