Messi captioned the video, talking about his own career that started 30 years ago: “It was close to three decades in which the ball gave me many joys and also some sadness.

“I always had the dream of being a World Champion and I didn’t want to stop trying, even knowing that it might never happen.

“This Cup that we won is also for all those who did not achieve it in the previous World Cups that we played, like in 2014 in Brazil,

“Where everyone deserved it because of how they fought until the very final, worked hard and wanted it as much as I did… And we deserved it in the end.

“It is also for Diego [Maradona] who encouraged us from heaven.

“And for all those who always helped the national team without looking at the result but rather the desire that we always put into it when things did not go as we wanted.

“From the coaching staff to all the people from the national team, some who are anonymous, work day and night to make it easier for us.

“Many times failure is part of the journey and of learning, and without disappointment it is impossible for success to come.

“Thank you very much from the heart! Let’s go Argentina!!!”
