Messi Has a Golden Chance to Become the Fifth Player Ever to Reach This Incredible World Cup Feat

Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi is set to feature in his fifth career World Cup, and he could reach a multitude of astounding feats in the coming weeks.

For one, Messi has scored in three different World Cups over his run with the Argentina national team; he logged at least one goal in the 2006, 2014, and 2018 editions of the World Cup.

If Messi manages to score a mere one goal in the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup, then he will become the fifth player ever to notch at least one goal in four different editions of the sport’s most prestigious tournament. Only Cristiano Ronaldo, Pele, Uwe Seeler, and Miroslav Klose have accomplished this historic feat.

The Argentine forward heads into the 2022 World Cup in keen form, as he tallied 12 goals for PSG in all competitions over the first half of this season.

Argentina will open up its World Cup group stage schedule with a clash against Saudi Arabia next week.
