With sweat pouring down his face, Lionel Messi stood tall on the world stage. In an epic final against Mbappé’s France last year in Qatar, he led Argentina to World Cup glory, winning the coveted prize at his record-equaling fifth attempt. And that was just the beginning.
With the world watching, Messi won the best player vote against Mbappé and Karim Benzema, securing the FIFA prize for the seventh time in 14 years. It was an incredible achievement, one that left Messi speechless. “It was a crazy year for me,” he said, his voice filled with emotion. “I could fulfill my (World Cup) dream after fighting for it for so long. And in the end, it happened, and it was the most beautiful thing of my career.”
For Messi, the win was a dream come true, a goal he had been striving towards for years. “It’s the dream of every player,” he said. “But very few can achieve it, so I’m thankful to God for being able to do it.”
But it wasn’t just the FIFA prize that Messi won that night. He also beat Mbappé to the Golden Ball trophy awarded by FIFA for the World Cup’s best player, a testament to his incredible skill and dedication. And while Mbappé may have earned the Golden Boot as the top scorer, it was Messi who truly shone on the field.
The three players had made the final shortlist in voting by a global panel of national team captains and coaches, selected journalists in each of FIFA’s 211 member countries, plus fans online. But in the end, it was Messi who emerged victorious, a true champion in every sense of the word.
With his record-breaking seventh win of the FIFA prize, Messi cemented his place in history as one of the greatest football players of all time. And as the world watched in awe, he stood tall, a true hero and inspiration to us all.
