Lionel Messi returned home to Rosario after winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Messi scored twice from regular play and converted his penalty in the shootout as Argentina beat France 4-2 following a 3-3 draw in 120 minutes.

He became Argentina’s third World Cup-winning captain, after Daniel Passarella and Diego Maradona, and settled the ‘GOAT’ argument.
