Messi claims World Cup’s Golden Ball

Argentina’s Lionel Messi won the Golden Ball award at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, after inspiring his national team to a penalty shoot-out victory over France following a scintillating final.

It’s the second time that the 35-year-old Argentina forward has claimed the prize, given to the tournament’s best player as awarded by a panel of journalists. Messi also won the award in Brazil 2014.

Argentina claimed its third World Cup earlier on Sunday, beating France 3-3 (4-2 on penalties) for Messi’s first-ever World Cup triumph.
