Lionel Messi is in a happy mood these days after helping Argentina win the World Cup on Sunday. They defeated France on penalty kicks with a score of 4-3. Overall, it was the greatest final in sports history, and spectators are still digesting what they witnessed.
If you are a Messi fan, this win has been fantastic as it pretty well solidifies Messi as the GOAT when compared to Cristiano Ronaldo. Furthermore, the win makes it so that Messi has nothing left to prove. Now, he can enjoy the rest of his career, especially as he takes his talents to South Beach.
Following his big win, Messi took to Instagram to celebrate. After a couple of days, the post reached a whopping 62 million likes. Consequently, he now has the most-liked Instagram post of all time. This surpasses the infamous egg which had 56 million likes.
“CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!” Messi wrote in the post. “So many times I dreamed it, so much I wanted it that I still don’t fall, I can’t believe it…… Thank you so much to my family, to all who support me and also to all who believed in us. We prove once again that Argentinians when we fight together and united we are able to achieve what we aim.
“The merit is of this group, which is above individuals, is the strength of all fighting for the same dream that was also the one of all Argentinians… We did it!!! LET’S GO ARGENTINA DAMN!!!!!”
Messi has never cared much for social media, so he probably won’t celebrate the record anytime soon. Regardless, this is a pretty cool achievement that speaks to how big this moment was for him.
