How did Lionel Messi perform at the 2022 FIFA World Cup?

Lionel Messi was one of the best players at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. He notably did most of the heavy lifting for Argentina on their road to glory despite the likes of Enzo Fernandez and Emiliano Martinez stepping up.

The 35-year-old found the back of the net seven times for the South American champions in the tournament. However, he missed out on the Golden Boot after PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick for France in the final.

Lionel Messi, though, won the Golden Ball award after he provided three assists for his teammates in seven matches. He has also now got his hands on the trophy that evaded him for most of his career.
