The 2022 World Cup in Qatar is known as: the twilight of the gods, the curtain call of youth.
Unknowingly, Ronaldo is 37 years old, Modric is 37 years old, Messi is 35 years old, Benzema is 34 years old, Neymar is in his thirties. Many shining stars have been born in the World Cup, but there are only a handful of legendary superstars who can dominate the stadium. The World Cup in Qatar may be a "twilight battle" for many veteran players, and Messi is one of them.
On the evening of November 22, the Saudi Arabian team defeated the Argentine team with a score of 2:1, and many topics continued to dominate the hot searches.
Argentina, ranked third in the World Cup, lost to Saudi Arabia. This is an unpopular battle that can be recorded in the history of the World Cup. With this game, Saudi Arabia completed the Asian team's first victory in this cup and ended its losing streak in the World Cup's first game
The subversive ending made Messi bluntly say after the game: "This is a very heavy blow. We didn't think about starting in this way. We have no excuses now. Now the team needs to be more united than ever before."
Previously, Messi said before the game, "This is likely to be my last World Cup and my last chance to turn our dreams into reality." In 2006, Messi, who was only 19 years old, made his World Cup debut . Now, 16 years have passed in a hurry, and he is 35 years old.
In 2014, the Argentine team was the closest to the championship after nearly 30 years. That year, Messi led Argentina all the way to the final. In the end, the German team lore, and the Argentine team's dream of winning the championship was shattered. Perhaps until today, the final of that year is still Messi's regret.
Messi was born in Argentina, the kingdom of football. Rosario, the capital of Santa Fe Province, is Messi's hometown and the place where his dream started.
When Messi was 5 years old, Aparicio, a star who participated in the 1970 World Cup, noticed the dazzling light on Messi. After seeing Messi, he took the initiative to invite Messi to participate in the game, but was rejected by Messi's parents.

Fortunately, his grandmother was very supportive. Messi has mentioned on several occasions that his grandmother, who died when he was 10, influenced his life. Messi has plunged into the world of football since he was a child. When he was a child, his grandmother accompanied him to practice and participate in competitions. The relationship between the two is very close. When Messi scores a goal in a game, he has a habit of pointing his finger to the sky, as if his grandmother was still around.

In 2005, the 18-year-old Messi scored the first goal for Barcelona, proving to everyone that no one is born strong, and all strengths are accumulated bit by bit from insignificance.
Since then, Messi has led the team to "conquer everywhere", winning numerous awards and suffering countless injuries. Broken left leg bone, edematous left ankle joint, several muscle strains, and metatarsal fractures... In the hearts of some fans, Messi is a "god" and a king with superb ball skills. For another part of people who have similar experiences, Messi's existence is more like a beam of light shining into the abyss. He uses his "fearless pressure" attitude and firm belief to gather people wandering in the dark Together, support each other, and move forward together.
Messi said in an interview: "Whether I was a child or now, I basically live with football. For me, football is everything to me. I like to play football. I enjoy it when I play football. This has never been the case change."
