According to Sportskeeda, journalist, Sofi Martinez Mateos has penned an emotional letter to Messi, revealing the world was happy to see the six-time Ballon d’Or winner lift the World Cup.

"In these interviews with world champions, I heard his teammates say that they gave 300% for him, and months ago I realized that the whole country (or the world) was happier because it was Messi who lifted the cup.
"I don't understand financial fair play, or everything that happened in recent weeks, but men in suits don't participate in this: the love of his family, his colleagues and the world is the most powerful thing there is."

Messi was named the Most Valuable Player as Argentina won the World Cup for the first time since 1986 following their triumph in Qatar.

Lewandowski had wished to play alongside Messi at Barcelona before the Argentina superstar had a change of heart and joined the Major League Soccer side Inter Miami.
