Lionel Messi, the Argentine team’s FIFA World Cup 2022 winning captain, has been invited to leave his mark at the iconic Maracana’s Hall of Fame.
The festivities for Lionel Messi don’t appear to be coming to an end. After the historic victory parade, which was partially conducted by open-air bus and entirely by helicopter, he has now been given the honor of immortalizing his print at Brazil’s illustrious Maracana. The winning captain of the 2022 FIFA World Cup will have his footprint carved into the legendary stadium’s Hall of Fame.
The State Sports Superintendence of Rio de Janeiro duly forwarded this crucial information. After Argentina won the World Cup by eliminating France with a score of 4-2 on penalties, the responsible authorities of the prestigious stadium extended the invitation to Lionel Messi once more on December 18, 2022. When Argentina won the Copa America in 2021 and brought home the trophy, this was also done at that time.
As a matter of fact, it was the president of the superintendence, Adriano Santos, who was the one who had been crucial in putting out the famous invitation to Lionel Messi. Officials from the Argentine Football Association were used to carry out this task. He noted that no one else could possibly have been more deserving of receiving this highest level of honor.
According to his unwavering conviction, if there was anyone else deserving of this level of respect, it unquestionably had to be Messi. Additionally, this was due to his entire behavior both on and off the field. Now that his footprint is permanently carved in the Maracana’s Hall of Fame, he will forever find himself in the company of such football greats as Pele, Garrincha, Rivelino, and Ronaldo.
