Messi’s statue at South American football headquarters

CONMEBOL, the highest body in South American football, has expressed its appreciation and love for the contribution of Lionel Messi, the captain who gave Argentina the World Cup title.

Messi’s sculpture has been placed next to legendary players Pele and Diego Maradona in the organization’s headquarters museum in Luque, Paraguay.

At the same time, Messi has been given the replica trophy of the World Cup by defeating France and the Finalissima trophy achieved by Argentina by defeating Italy.

The replica was handed over to Messi in a brief ceremony before the draw ceremony for the Copa Libertadores held on Monday. At this time, other members of the Argentine team and coach Lionel Scaloni were given a small trophy. This includes winning the Copa America trophy against Brazil in 2021.

An excited Messi said, ‘We are enjoying some special and wonderful moments right now. Getting unconditional love from everyone. As a South American country, we want to win the World Cup again.

Argentina beat Panama 2-0 recently in their first international friendly since winning the World Cup in Qatar last December.
