Recent grand failure of Lionel Messi
Born and brought up in the heartland of Argentina, this charming and suave being of enthusiasm and incredible talent, has been a football fanatic and an ace for a very long time now. He has been a zealous man with his ball who played forward in Barcelona (Spanish Team). Resisting the highs and lows of almost every kind, he never even dreamed of backing out or giving up in his entire football career. Messi has been the first warrior both in the game and on the field to achieve European Golden Shoes, three in a row. Also in the history of football, he is the most celebrated footballer who won FIFA Ballons d’Or five times. The chart showing the trace of his success does not come to an end here. He has also made his fans proud worldwide bagging La Liga titles eight times with Barcelona. Winning 4 UEFA Champions League titles and 4 Copas del Rey have been added to his achievement list. Being a pretty skillful player Messi holds a record of scoring most goals in La Liga with pride. Also, his unique fashion of dealing with football has portrayed his creativity for he has held a record of assisting in La Liga more than anybody else. Nevertheless, his saddening defeats in majors for the last four finals have deeply crashed his confidence as well as his popular and unbeatable legacy.
In the United States, Messi as obviously as any time was leading in the match in spite of playing against a tough defender, Eduardo Vargas, the renowned striker from Chiles. In fact, the field was brightened with the presence of players like Alexis Sanchez who has bagged the Golden Ball from the officials. Yet there was none who could get the better of Messi. Amazing as he was as always!
With a striking honor and contentment, Messi sprinted up to the terminal event along with his team, being its ruling and pivotal element. Scoring five goals back to back in the tournament, Messi was praised immensely for his wonderful free kick on the day of the semi-final. His record was incongruous with that of any till then since he was above all, topping the game, beyond the shadow of a doubt. But, he failed to keep up with his own record in the unforgettable penalty shootout at the final event of Copa America. It was am arresting moment of regret that could never be forgotten. Such wistful loss it was! Still and all, his ultimate and soul-stirring contribution to his team was the spectacular kick on the spot atop the crossbar. Messi, in one of his interviews, mourned over his defeat. He revealed how it hurt him every time he couldn’t make it to the final with his team. Hence, it was the very weak point of breaking down when he dared to decide his last call from the team of Argentina. But will the world ever be able to get over his brilliance? Time to give the player the most deserving and respectful farewell for his memorable contribution to the game ‘Football’.
