Lionel Messi’s World Cup post becomes the most liked post in Instagram; crosses “The Egg” post’s record


After the scores were tied 3-3 in extra time, Argentina defeated France 4-2 on penalties, giving Lionel Messi his first FIFA World Cup victory and a stunning victory to his international football career. Messi scored two goals and Kylian Mbappe three for France. Argentina only had one additional scorer, Angel di Maria.

Messi, the all-time leading goal scorer for Argentina in World Cup history, broke numerous records in the record-breaking final. Seven goals were scored him during the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Golden Ball was given to the 35-year-old for being the best player at the Qatar-hosted FIFA World Cup in 2022. Messi is the only player to have won the Golden Ball twice, scoring 26 goals for Argentina in important international competitions (2014 and 2022).

The 35-year-old was the only player to win the Golden Ball award twice after scoring seven goals and providing three assists during the competition. The most liked Instagram post in history has now been surpassed by a picture of an egg that was posted in January 2019 by Messi’s post thanking his teammates after winning the World Cup in Qatar.
