Messi is one win away from the ultimate trophy; Lionel Messi has already made history as the first player to win the Champions League with three different clubs. Still, only one major trophy has eluded him in his storied career. Messi will be looking to add to his trophy case and cement himself as perhaps the greatest of all time when he goes up against France at Sunday’s FIFA World Cup final in Russia.
On Sunday, Leo Messi will get a chance to validate his status as one of the all-time greats. After winning every significant honor, he’s ever competed for with Barcelona and Argentina, only one piece of hardware has ever eluded him: The world champion title. His team is playing in their first-ever final, just one win away from adding their name to the only trophy missing in their collection.
At age 34, Lionel Messi seeks the one major trophy that has eluded him to cement his status as perhaps the greatest player of all time.
Lionel Messi’s legacy has been about what he did not win and did not accomplish at a World Cup.
