Lionel Messi - Soccer, Argentina

Here is our TOP perFORMer of December 2022

It’s not every day that we get to witness athletic greatness while it is occurring, but that is what we received this month. The 2022 World Cup final was nothing short of incredible and the game’s Golden Ball honoree has now cemented his legacy.

Lionel Messi is considered by many to be the greatest soccer player of all time. On the heels of his two-goal performance and first World Cup title, Messi has reached the upper echelon of performance in his sport. 

Messi played in his first World Cup at 18-years-old and has represented his country of Argentina well ever since. From winning the FIFA World Youth Championship to an Olympic Gold medal, there were no accolades left unearned aside from winning the FIFA World Cup title. Messi has led the Argentinian national team through three consecutive World Cup playoffs only to fall short. By overcoming France this year in one of the greatest World Cup final moments ever, Messi has now put the cherry on top of an illustrious career.

The now 35-year-old soccer star remarked about his career by stating he doesn't plan to leave the international soccer stage anytime soon. After speaking to TyC Sports after the team's win, Messi explained, "I won the Copa America and the World Cup quickly. I love what I do, being in the national team, and I want to continue living a few more games being world champion." This news comes as a contradiction based on speculation that this would be Messi’s final World Cup. Is he winding his career down or will he continue to play on to his 6th World Cup tournament? 

Top Form Psychology congratulates team Argentina and our TOP perFORMer Lionel Messi on his sought after World Cup title. We can’t wait to see him compete on the grand stage once more.
