Lionel Messi continues to celebrate the historic victory in Qatar 2022, as this Wednesday marks one month since Argentina lifted the cup and was crowned in the FIFA World Cup.

The Argentine took to his social networks to send an emotional message of celebration and gratitude one month after the long-suffering victory against France in the final in Qatar when, after a 3-3 draw, the Albiceleste won the penalty shootout and lifted the ultimate title that had eluded him for 36 years.

"One of the most beautiful months in the world and I still can't believe it. What a beautiful madness we lived through all that time that we ended up lifting the Cup that we all wanted so much," Messi wrote on his verified Instagram account.

The Argentine spoke about the "nice" that happened throughout the World Cup and the memories that stayed with him after a tremendous experience.

"I miss my teammates, the day to day with them, the mates, the talks, the training sessions, the nonsense we did...", wrote Messi.


"How nice it was to see my family enjoy an unforgettable experience for everyone every day and how beautiful it was to go to the games and see the madness of the people on the pitch and in Argentina."

The Argentine thanked God and added that he never imagined the "madness" of all the fans at the festivities, in which millions of people flooded the streets of the country celebrating this victory in unison.

"Thank God for so much. As I said, I knew that you were going to give it to me. What I could not imagine was after having achieved it and I was not wrong, because I could never have imagined the madness of the people at the festivities," he wrote the Argentine captain.

Lionel Scaloni, the youngest coach in the World Cup, led a seasoned group to the top.

Argentina won 4 games, lost one and drew two (with a round of penalties won).

It was the team with the most shots: 102, according to data from DataFactory.

The best player in the world, and perhaps in history, Lionel Messi, scored 7 goals and reached 13 in all the World Cups: he is the leader of the Argentines.

It was the player who was fouled the most, 21. It was, perhaps, his last World Cup, and his best tournament played.

The forward scored against Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Australia, the Netherlands, Croatia and France (2).

He made 33 kills, more than anyone in the tournament.

In addition, he won the Ballon d'Or of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

He played a total of 26 games in World Cups, a global historical record, and accumulated 8 assists in World Cups, the same as Maradona.
