One of the nicest accolades I’ve ever received. It’s an honor.”
Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain) was thrilled to have the Argentine national team training ground named after him.
On the 26th (Korean time), Argentine Football Association President Claudio Tapia posted a photo of the unveiling ceremony of the Lionel Andres Messi training ground along with Argentine national team members including Messi on his SNS. “We celebrated a historic day at the Casa de Ezeiza (the national team’s training facility in Buenos Aires),” he said. “Starting today, we will call this place ‘Lionel Andres Messi’.” To pay homage to the player,” he added.
Messi also said, “It’s one of the coolest commendations I’ve ever received,” along with a commemorative photo taken next to the signboard with his name on social media. I was thrilled with one line.
Messi’s Argentina won the 2022 World Cup in Qatar last winter for the first time in 36 years. Superstar Messi recorded 7 goals and 3 assists and won the ‘Golden Ball’ award for best player. Messi also swept the best male player award at the 2022 FIFA Football Awards in February.
He had everything by winning the World Cup in Qatar, but Messi’s challenge continues. Messi, who declared the World Cup in Qatar to be his last,안전놀이터 has declared his intention to continue playing for his country, Argentina, after winning the championship. On the 24th, in a friendly match against Panama, Messi scored his 99th goal in his A match career and 800th in his personal career in all matches with a free kick goal. Argentina, led by coach Scaloni, will also defend its Copa America championship title next summer. If he maintains the current pace, it seems like a possible scenario for him to participate in the World Cup in North and Central America, which will be held three years later at the age of 39.
