Does Messi Really need a World Cup to prove himself?

Messi's Magic:

Lionel Andres Messi is greatly considered as one of the best players who has graced modern football.
Born in Rosario, Argentina, Messi has played his professional career with Fc Barcelona and Argentina National team. He is generally referred to as the Greatest of all times (G.O.A.T.) for what he has achieved in his career. Messi has already won 5 Ballon d'Or and 5 Golden boots surpassing his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

Many considered the little genius as the second Maradona but does Messi really need that title to prove himself? He has won every possible trophy for his club FC Barcelona but an international trophy awaits him.

Messi's Dream of lifting a silverware for Argentina:

Previously, Messi missed winning a silverware for Argentina in Copa America Finals both in 2015, 2016 against Chile in penalties which even saw him retiring from the International career.

Messi was just 90 minutes away from attaining the level of Maradona when Argentina was defeated by Germany in the Fifa World Cup final from a late goal from Mario Gotze.

But this world cup will be very special and important for Messi. He is in his peak and with an ageing career, he may not be that much of an influencer in 2022 World Cup. So probably, this is his last chance of achieving his dream of winning the world cup.

It was even very difficult for Argentina to qualify in the WC 2018 but a hattrick in the last qualifier match by Messi sealed Argentina position in the World Cup.

Seeing their current team, it can be said that the hopes of 40.3 Million Argentinians are on Messi's shoulder. They have impressive attack options ranging from Dybala, Higuain, Aguero and Di Maria but seeing their previous records, Argentina is a one-man team. If Messi is in full form, then there are great chances that he may lead his team to glory this time.

There are fewer odds of Argentina doing the impossible in Russia but let's see what the Man in blue with the little magician have in their place of taking the trophy to their home.
