What’s the story?

Messi was one of the most talked-about footballers on social media in recent times, this following his Copa America win with Argentina. In facing arch-rivals Brazil in the final, Messi claimed the trophy with his national team, a trophy that evaded him for much of his career.

   

Ballon d’Or Loading?

In fact, many now believe that the attacker puts himself among the elite of the elite in football terms, having won at both club and international levels. Winning silverware with Argentina this year has also boosted his chances of claiming another Ballon d’Or trophy, having won six already in his illustrious career.

As a rejuvenated player, Messi is currently on holiday and was recently spotted out in Hollywood as he and his family were seen at the Hard Rock hotel.

Indian Mural
