Argentina’s populace can now worship a new football “god.” One of the most iconic pictures in football history shows Maradona celebrating while perched atop teammates’ shoulders at the Estadio Azteca. As a result, it was only natural that former teammate of Messi Sergio lifted him into the air to recreate the image. Messi and the former Argentina No. 10 have always been contrasted. One thing is certain, though: Messi and Maradona both merit their own pedestals. The comparisons and discussions about who was the greatest will undoubtedly continue.

When Messi at last had the opportunity to hold the prestigious trophy, he did so with obvious love in his eyes. Maradona also steered Argentina to their historic victory in 1986. He scored the famous “Hand of God” and “Goal of the Century” in that same tournament’s quarterfinal matchup versus England. In that tournament, the former Napoli player scored five goals. He was handed the Golden Ball award that year as he was head and shoulders above the competition throughout.

As Messi celebrated the biggest victory of his football career by kissing the World Cup trophy and raising it with his teammates, millions of fans across the world were glued to the television. He will now take in the homecoming festivities and continue representing Argentina on the field after adding the third World Cup star to the team’s jersey. The Paris Saint-Germain great, who declared before the World Cup in Qatar that it would be his last, also won the Golden Ball for best player.
