Messi earned his second World Cup Golden Ball in Qatar, becoming the first player to score at every stage of the tournament and the tournament’s all-time appearance leader with 26 games.
“Wow, it’s great,” he exclaimed as he accepted the trophy. It’s been an incredible year, and it’s an honor to be here tonight and get this award.
“I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my teammates. I realized a long-held ambition of mine. Few individuals can do it, and I consider myself fortunate to have done so.”
After a difficult exit from Barcelona, the 35-year-old has also demonstrated improved form with club side Paris Saint-Germain. PSG won Ligue 1 in 2021/22 and look ready to do it again this season, however they need to improve in the Champions League after losing the first leg 1-0 to Bayern Munich.
That adds to Messi’s growing list of individual honors. He previously won the award in 2019 and currently holds seven Ballon d’Or titles.
