Messi is sure that Maradona would be very happy to have his record broken at the World Cup

Argentina striker Lionel Messi, 35, reacted to the fact that he managed to surpass the achievement of the legendary Diego Maradona in the national team.

The final match of the group stage of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar against Poland (2-0) was the 22nd for Messi at the world championships. Messi has surpassed Maradona, who has played 21 games in the World Cup.

I recently found out that I had broken his record. I didn't know that. I am happy that I can continue to set such records. I believe Diego would have been very happy for me, because he always showed me a lot of love. He was always happy when things were going well for me.

Lionel Messi, quoted by RMC Sport
