Former Ghanaian captain Asamoah Gyan commented on Argentina’s World Cup victory, which was led by Lionel Messi.
The former Barcelona player led the South American nation to victory in Qatar on Sunday, December 18, 2022, scoring two goals against France in the championship game.
Despite scoring twice, the match had to go to penalties because Lionel Messi’s PSG colleague Kylian Mbappe had a hat-trick.
Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez of Argentina saved Kingsley Coman’s penalty to help his team win the shootouts 4-2.
“This man deserves everything. Lionel Messi,” Gyan wrote with fire emojis on Twitter.
Messi made his World Cup debut in 2006 in Germany, but he had to wait until his sixth tournament to take home the biggest trophy in football.
He was crowned the tournament’s player of the year in Qatar after scoring seven goals, which was second only to Mbappe’s eight goals. Mbappe won the Golden Boot award for scoring the most goals with eight.
