Messi is back in the largest soccer game on a quest to capture the game’s top honor for the first time. He could hardly be playing any better at age 35.

Croatia 0 - 3 Argentina: Argentina moves to the World Cup Final

As Argentina defeated Croatia 3-0 on Tuesday to go to the World Cup final against either France or Morocco, Messi put on possibly the finest performance of his record-tying 25 World Cup appearances.

With an astonishing display of brilliance that drew cheers from Argentina’s massive fan base, Messi scored a penalty and assisted Julin Alvarez on the other two goals, turning the previously stressful situation into a procession.

Messi breaking records AGAIN:

Messi now has 11 goals overall, one more than Gabriel Batistuta, and he broke the record for most goals scored by Argentina in a World Cup. By appearing in the World Cup for the 25th time, he also tied Lothar Matth us of Germany for the record for the most appearances.

Looking up at Argentina’s jubilant, scarf-waving fans, Messi stated in a post-game interview on the field, “A lot is going through my head; it’s quite emotional witnessing all of this.” “Seeing the fans as a family during the entire tournament was just amazing. We got what we sought by making it to the final.

This is Messi’s second World Cup championship game. Argentina lost the other one to Germany in 2014, which may have been his final tournament performance.

The setting is set for a player who is largely regarded as one of the finest in the game, if not the best ever, to end his career on a high note.

Along the way, he is delighting his adoring following. Messi embodied confidence and swagger with his turn and driving run to set up Alvarez’s third goal in the 69th minute, which left Josko Gvardiol, one of the greatest defenders of Croatia at the World Cup, gasping at air.
