Highlights: Italy 0-3 Argentina
As well as lighting up the club game, Messi has thrived on the international stage, sealing his status as an Argentina legend comparable to Diego Maradona when he captained his nation to FIFA World Cup glory at Qatar 2022. He weighed in with two goals against France in the final and also converted his spot kick in the shoot-out as the Albiceleste triumphed on penalties.

Since making his debut in 2005 aged 18 following his starring role in Argentina’s FIFA U-20 World Cup win, Messi has won caps for 18 years running and scored in each of the last 17 (up to and including 2022). He also skippered his country to victory at the 2021 Copa América and Finalissima 2022, and is on course to become only the third man to register 100 international goals.
